Invaild call. Nonexistent 'int' constructor.

So I’m trying to make this game of chance and the function to put the number on the board and I’m having trouble to set the text as a number (Its a 3D game btw). I’m using a 3D text plugin to get some text on the board.


extends StaticBody

onready var text1 = get_node("board/MeshInstance2/Label3D")
onready var text2 = get_node("board/MeshInstance3/Label3D2")
onready var text3 = get_node("board/MeshInstance4/Label3D3")
onready var text4 = get_node("board/MeshInstance5/Label3D4")
onready var rolled_num1 =
onready var rolled_num2 = int(rolled_num1)

func _ready():

func _input(event):
	if event is InputEventMouseButton:
	        text1.text = int(rolled_num2)
		text2.text = int(rolled_num2)
		text3.text = int(rolled_num2)
		text4.text = int(rolled_num2)

Thanks! I tried but didn’t know how… :slight_smile:

Looks like you have a number of issues going on here…

First, this:

onready var rollednum1 =

That does not return a random number as you seem to think. Instead, it returns an instance of a random number generator. That’s an object that can generate random numbers…

So, I’d store that in a more descriptive variable. Something like:

onready var rng =

You probably want to call randomize once on the new rng object. So, this:

func  _ready():

Now, you can use your new random number generator object to generate random numbers whenever you want like this:

var rand_int_1 = rng.randi_range(0, 10) # random int between 0 and 10
var rand_int_2 = rng.randi_range(5, 100) # random int between 5 and 100

Note that you can also generate random float values using rng.randf_range().

Finally, if you want to convert an numeric value to a string, you want the str() function, like this:

text1.text = str(rand_int_1)

Thank you! It’s fully fixed now! I can now continue to make the first ver. of my game!

:bust_in_silhouette: Reply From: kidscancode creates a RandomNumberGenerator object. Your error comes because you can’t pass this to int().

To generate a random number from this object, you need to use one of its appropriate methods, such as randi() or randi_range().

Please see the docs for RandomNumberGenerator, where more examples are shown.
