Why aren't my leaderstats saving?

Asked by 9 months ago
Edited 9 months ago

So, for my game, I want my leaderstats to save. I've tried datastores and whatnot, but nothing ever works. I then resorted to using a plain leaderstats save. I reused my old leaderstat save from another one of my old games, and it worked in that game, but it doesn't work for this new game... It's a normal script in serverscriptservice. Code:

CashStore = game:GetService("DataStoreService"):GetDataStore("DataStore")

function PlayerEntered(player)
    repeat wait() until player.Character

    local stats = Instance.new("IntValue")
    stats.Parent = player
    stats.Name = "leaderstats"

    local cash = Instance.new("IntValue")
    cash.Parent = stats
    cash.Name = "Doubloons"

    if CashStore:GetAsync("Points_"..player.Name) ~= nil then
        cash.Value = CashStore:GetAsync("Points_"..player.Name)
    else
        cash.Value = 100
    end

    cash.Changed:connect(function(Val)
        CashStore:SetAsync("Points_"..player.Name, Val)
    end)

game.Players.PlayerRemoving:Connect(function(player)
    for i,v in pairs(script:GetChildren()) do 
        print("Getting")
        local DataStore = game:GetService("DataStoreService")
        local d = DataStore:GetDataStore(v.Name)
        d:SetAsync(player.UserId, player.leaderstats[v.Name].Value)
        print("Saved")
    end
end

game.Players.PlayerAdded:connect(PlayerEntered)

Thank you!

You should change the 'Points_..player.Name to player.UserId, because the player can change their username, and lose their data. The UserId never changes. deeskaalstickman649 388 — 9mo

If this is the only script you have, then the player data only gets loaded, however, never gets saved.

Therefore, the DataStore will hold nothing.

Ooooh... But why did it save in my other game then? Since this is, like you said, the only script. PadmeOragana 78 — 9mo

It's probably because you also added a load data script. Also, make sure studio has access to API requests, HTTP services, and make sure your game is published.. deeskaalstickman649 388 — 9mo

What's the load data script? Also, the API requests and HTTP services are on. The game is also published. PadmeOragana 78 — 9mo

I meant a save script, it's when the script saves the players data whenever one leaves. deeskaalstickman649 388 — 9mo

Make the script save when a player leaves. deeskaalstickman649 388 — 9mo
