Console system doesn't work and gives no errors?

Edited 4 days ago

I want to make a system that checks whether the player has the specific item, and if the player does, then the console would "work". However, the code didn't give me errors and it doesn't work.

Also, I don't really know how to exactly make a system that only destroys the tool if the player pressed the proximity prompt again. For now, it instantly destroys it if the player picks it up after pressing it. (Edit: turns out the textlabel also doesn't work for some reason)

local proxPrompt = script.Parent.ProximityPrompt

proxPrompt.Triggered:Connect(function(touched)
local backpack = touched:FindFirstChild("Backpack")
local backpackGame = backpack:WaitForChild("game")
if backpackGame then
backpackGame:Destroy()
elseif backpackGame == nil then
local cantInsertItemGui = game.StarterGui.CantInsertItemGui
local textLabel = cantInsertItemGui.TextLabel
textLabel.Visible = true
textLabel.Text = "you need a game to play on the console"
end
end)

im not sure why your using WaitForChild instead of FindFirstChild but try putting an amount of seconds to wait for as a second parameter in WaitForChild because i think its infinitely yielding enzotinman1 22 — 4d

The FindFirstChild fix worked for the everything before "elseif", thanks. (I didn't point out the textlabel was not working at first.) YeBeaseT21 0 — 4d

xxaxxaz is once again wrong in his answer. the reason this doesnt work is because game.StarterGui isn't the playergui, StarterGui clones and goes in each player --> playergui. This explains no errors. greatneil80 2465 — 3d

this needs two scripts, one local and one not local

not local script:

local proxPrompt = script.Parent.ProximityPrompt

proxPrompt.Triggered:Connect(function(touched)
local backpack = touched:FindFirstChild("Backpack")
local backpackGame = backpack:WaitForChild("game")
if backpackGame then
backpackGame:Destroy()
end
end)


local script:

local proxPrompt = script.Parent.ProximityPrompt

proxPrompt.Triggered:Connect(function(touched)
if backpackGame == nil then
local cantInsertItemGui = game.StarterGui.CantInsertItemGui
local textLabel = cantInsertItemGui.TextLabel
textLabel.Visible = true
textLabel.Text = "you need a game to play on the console"
end
end)
