Weird names in groups

I’m experiencing a very weird behaviour in the group names:

In below image, I have my player in a group called “Player”, but when I print the group with:

print("player grupo = ", get_groups()[0])

I get this group tag shown in image, “_vp_input1311”.


Of course, is the only group of the node, and other npcs in groups works correctly, so I understand nothing.

The group names that start with _ are internal group names. The docs mention that and also provide a code snippet to ignore internal group names when using get_groups. See here for details.

Ok, clear. Thank you very much.

I wasn’t aware about internal groups.

I have to reddo some things, but fortunatelly I was beginning to use them in my prototype.
