I’m trying to print the health number onto the screen to tell the player how much health they have

Use the str() function, like label.text = str(health)

can you explain in more detail? I’m new to programming and don’t know what that is

i have a player, controls a health system and that’s it. the variable name is Health. sorry if thats not what you mean.

Okay so you should use a Label node to display text. A label node has a text property that controls what text it displays. The str() function is a global function that converts anything into a string. You will need it to convert your health into a string. So, just call the str()function with your health and an argument and assign the value to the label’s text.

how do I get the variable from the player script and allow the label node to use it?

I think you should read up on node paths.
