I am trying to generate random number but the following code returns always the same numbers after every restart:

for i in range(3):
    print( randi()%8 )


for i in range(3):
     print(rand_range(0, 8))

I tried to restart application 10 times with the same result.

Is it possible to make totally random numbers in some range?

Thank you,

Hello maer,

sounds like that you could try to call randomize() in the _ready() function, in the script, where you try to generate random numbers.

func _ready( ):

This should generate a new seed for the random number generator. Therefore every new run should have other numbers.

see randomize for more information

Thanks, work like a charm.

Thanks, I’ve got the same problem and now my game will change every match. I was thinking “Why the bubble always Spam in the same place??” and now I understand all. Thanks, thanks, thanks!
