Hi there!
Please provide more information, we can’t help you without knowing your scripts and so on.

it could be because you are working with local position.
please use and read about it.

var posGlobal: Vector2 = get_global_transform().get_origin()

it is going to give you the global position of the node.
if this node is part of another node you make sure this one is placed at origin coordinate because this node could be in other position (offset)

that code is equivalent to just using global_position directly, you don’t need to get it via the transform

but how do you access this (global_position) without using the other ( get_global_transform). If you have a better asnwer I would like to know it, I like to learn a lot. Thanks.

Thanks for trying to help, I finally found the error, I was using Node instead of Node2D, what a mistake :new_moon_with_face:

Node2D and Node3D has a global_position property, it’s basically a shorthand to global_transform.origin, it’s new to Godot4 if I remember correctly.

Since this question is about Godot 4: just use global_position, it is a property of every Node2D/Node3D.
