I need help with a script instances, here the code:

#Script instructions
extends Node
var currentScene = null
var PlayerName = "Mike"

func _ready():
   currentScene = get_tree().get_root().get_child(get_tree().get_root().get_child_count() -1)

func setScene(scene):
   var s = ResourceLoader.load(scene)  #ERROR HERE ERROR HERE
   currentScene = s.instance()
func getPlayerName():
   return PlayerName

# Script call

Did you double check that this path and filename is correct? “res://Scenes/ingamebot”

Can you please try to add file extension on your res:// path: get_node("/root/global").set_scene("res://Scenes/in_game_bot.EXTENSION") (like .xml, .scn etc) and tell us if it helps? :slight_smile:

You are sending file path (from “res://” space), not node path.

Example: get_node("/root/global").set_scene("res://Scenes/in_game_bot.scn")

Btw, i think you was going thru this tutorial on changing scene. That guy is using get_node("/root/globals").set_scene("res://Scenes/game.scn") - first is node path, second file path.

worked , thanks man, but I wanted to do to change screen When you press a “button” in the first scene , I tried to use " get_node (node ​​) .is_pressed ()" but did not work

Look for connect, actually it is explained in Part 5, section “Connecting Code to your Control”.
