I’m just trying to do the Hello World Tutorial. I couldn’t do it on Godot website because what was on my screen did not match what was in the tutorial. So I paid for Udemy GODOT lesson. I’m getting error messages (3) but can’t even see what the whole error is in the error window let alone be able to copy and paste it here. Is there a way to see the whole error message and copy it? I also see no way to upload a screen shot. Is there a way to do that? Thank you.

I’m not familiar with the Udemy course, but here are a few tips:

  • The best place to start is the Step by Step section of the official docs:
    Step by step — Godot Engine (3.0) documentation in English

  • The Step by Step section includes a full walkthrough of a game, which will demonstrate many of the fundamental concepts you need for working in Godot. The game is called “Dodge the Creeps” and you can also find a video version here:

  • For your error problem - if the error message is long, you can hover over it to see the full text. You can also drag the bar between the “Errors” and “Stack Trace” sections to the left/right to resize them.

  • There is no way to upload screenshots directly to this site. However, you can use a free hosting site like and link your images here.
