Signal not sending?

I am trying to send a signal on contact with my player and a coin that updates the coin amount. Here is the code for the collision with the player

func _on_Coin_area_entered(area):
if area.is_in_group(“player”):
I connected the signal coinget to this function

func _on_Coin_coingetn():
coins += 1
It doesn’t update the counter, but I tried similar code with a timer instead

func _on_TestTimer_timeout():
coins += 1

and that code worked. Any way how to make it work with the signal?

How are you connecting the signal?

I instanced the coin scene under my main scene then connected the signal to that main scene’s script

Did you connect the onConinareaenteered(area) to the area_entered signal?

If the emit() is not working, I guess the func onCoinareaentered is not called.

The function is being called though, because the hide() works so I don’t know if the signal isn’t being emitted or what.

Well, if onConareaentered() is called, emit_signal(“coin_get”) shouldn’t be the problem. Then is probably the signal “coin_get” having a connection issue.

func onCoincoinget():
     coins += 1

you got an extra letter “n” added there, i think it’s disconnecting your signal

I made a typo when typing the code I think, there isn’t and n there in the actual code
here is what I’m currently using

func _on_Coin_coinget():
coins += 1
