Why doesn't my datastore work, it doesn't print anything or give errors?

Asked by 12 days ago

I followed theDevKings tutorial on datastores and yet it doesn't work. It could be that my script is outdated as the video is almost a year old.

Here is the script:

local dataStoreService = game:GetService("DataStoreService")
local dataStore1 = dataStoreService:GetDataStore("dataStore1")
local dataStore2 = dataStoreService:GetDataStore("dataStore2")

game.Players.PlayerAdded:Connect(function(plr)

    local leaderstats = Instance.new("Folder",plr)
    leaderstats.Name = "leaderstats"

    local Flips = Instance.new("IntValue",leaderstats)
    Flips.Name = "Flips"
    Flips.Parent = leaderstats

    local Money = Instance.new("IntValue",leaderstats)
    Money.Name = "Money"
    Money.Parent = leaderstats

    local userID = "Player_"..plr.UserId

    local flipdata
    local moneydata
    local success, errormessage = pcall(function()
        flipdata = dataStore1:GetAsync(userID)
        moneydata = dataStore2:GetAsync(userID)
    end)

    if success then
        Flips.Value = flipdata
        Money.Value = moneydata
    else
        warn(errormessage)
    end

end)

game.Players.PlayerRemoving:Connect(function(plr)

    local userID = "Player_"..plr.UserId

    local flipdata = plr.leaderstats.Flips.Value
    local moneydata = plr.leaderstats.Money.Value

    local success, errormessage = pcall(function()
        dataStore1:SetAsync(userID, flipdata)
        dataStore2:SetAsync(userID, moneydata)
    end)

    if success then
        print("Cool, data saved")
    else 
        print("Not cool, data not saved")
        warn(errormessage)
    end
end)

Is API service off? If that were so, make sure it is on. JesseSong 3371 — 12d

I recommend that you make the data store do something in workspace, that way you can go in and actually play it from the roblox player instead of roblox studios. DataStores are hard to work with because its hard to tell if they work. Although there may be a better way to check this. Turtleraptor372 0 — 12d
