If else in changing scene

Hi so Im working on a 2d platformer that has two different sets of items to collect that are kept track of with two different progress bars.
What is supposed to happen is that when the player picks up ten of the A Items, the A Progress bar is full and it changes scenes. Which does happen.
But I wanted to make it so that if the player had collected a certain amount of B Items they’d be sent to a different scene than usual.

this is the code on the player:

func _on_work_accomplished_3():
if Autoload.Glitches >= 3:
	get_tree().change_scene_to_file("res://level_fourtwo.tscn")
else:
	get_tree().change_scene_to_file("res://level_fourone.tscn")

the work Accomplished is the signal the A progress bar sends out when 10 items have been collected
and Glitches is the name of the B Item

this is the script I have on the progress bar:

    extends CanvasLayer

var works = 0
signal WorkAccomplished3

func _ready():
	$workprogress/ProgressBar.value = works
	if works == 10:
		WorkAccomplished3

func _on_work_done():
	works = works + 1
	_ready()
	if works == 10:
		emit_signal("WorkAccomplished3")

the work_done is a signal the A Item send when its been collected.

Everything works perfectly fine when I take the if else statement out of the code and just have it change scene, so I don’t think its an issue with the Items or the Progress Bar

Are you saying that with the if/else, that the scene change isn’t happening at all or that it’s just not changing to the scene you expect?

Assuming you’re getting into your _on_work_accomplished_3() function, you should be loading one of the two specified scenes based on the value of Autoload.Glitches. Assuming you’re just getting the wrong scene, the cause is simply the value of Glitches variable.

A debug break point in that function should make it easy to see what’s going wrong…

Heres one thing you can do:

signal WorkAccomplished()

Func SendSignal():
    WorkAccomplished.emit(A_Items, B_Items)

and on your Other Script you would have in your Ready Function

TheScriptThatSendsTheSignal.WorkAccomplished.connect(WorkAccomplishedFunc)

func WorkAccomplishedFunc(A_Items, B_Items)
    If A_Items >= 10 and B_Items == (YourSpecificAmount):
        (LoadThisScene)
    elif A_Items >= 10:
        (LoadThisNoramlScene)

You send a SIgnal Containing your A and B Items, And on the Other Script you Catch the Signal, And then you Connect it to your LoadingScene Function… And from there you just Load whatever you want based on your Variables
