You could use a .txt file for this

var file ="path/to/file.txt", file.WRITE)
file.store_line(str(your integer))

And reading the file

var file ="path/to/file.txt", file.READ)
number = int(file.get_line())

can the integer be interchangeable with a variable that inclues an integer, thank you for answering btw

“variable that includes an integer”? A variable is either an integer or isn’t. the int(file.get_line()) method will return a type int, which an int variable can be set to.

Here’s a sample to understand the different datatypes.

var line_text : String
var number : int
line_text = file.get_line() #gets the line as a string
number = int(line_text) #converts string into an int if the string only has characters 0-9
