so i am trying to make an inventory system quite a simple one but for some resons i cant manage to instantiate my slot scene any idea why i can provide additional information if needed.

my problem is that i get non existent function for instance
here is the script part that handle the instantiation

# Create a new slot for each item in the inventory
	var slot_scene = load("res://Scene/UI/Slot.tscn")
	for i in range(inventory_size.x * inventory_size.y):
		var slot = slot_scene.instance() = str(i)
		slot.connect("slot_pressed", self, "_on_slot_pressed")

For Godot 4, I assume you want slot_scene.instantiate()?

i did try instantiate() it now returns i think its because i get string from the self tag
i am a little bit lost on how to convert it basicly and wich type it needs

 @ _ready(): Cannot connect to 'slot_pressed': the provided callable is null.
  <Erreur C++>   Condition "p_callable.is_null()" is true. Returning: ERR_INVALID_PARAMETER

You seem to be using Godot 4, but with code that’s meant to be used with Godot 3.x. The signal connection mechanism has been updated in Godot 4 and has a different syntax…

var slots = get_node("SlotsContainer/Slots");
	for _i in range(MAX_SLOTS):
		var slot =;
