# Trying to make a dash tool for the morph, but It keeps saying "Torso Is not a valid member of" (?)

Asked by 4 days ago

Hello!

I made a tool Inside an NPC that when activated causes the NPC to dash, basically, the reason why the tool Is Inside the NPC Is because I made a tool that lets you morph or transform Into that said morph, the problem Is that when I activate the ability, It does literally nothing, and the output said:

Torso is not a valid member of Backpack "Players.imnotaguest1121.Backpack"

I did the same thing before and It worked, I don't know why Its happening on this one though

(Note: The script Is unfinished, you don't need to add the dashing part, just fix why Its not working)

Script

 local Tool = script.Parent
local Troll = Tool.Parent
local Debounce = false

Tool.Activated:Connect(function()
if not Debounce then
Debounce = true
Troll.Torso.Anchored = true
wait(1)
Debounce = false
Troll.Torso.Anchored =  false
end
end)

When the tool is unequipped, Tool.Parent is the backpack; when the tool is equipped, Tool.Parent is the character model.

Fortunately, there is an alternative solution to get the character: by doing game.Players.LocalPlayer.Character.

Fixed script:

 local Tool = script.Parent
local Character = game.Players.LocalPlayer.Character
local Debounce = false

Tool.Activated:Connect(function()
if not Debounce then
Debounce = true
Character.Torso.Anchored = true
wait(1)
Debounce = false
Character.Torso.Anchored =  false
end
end)


To make this script server-sided, try using this method to get the character: Tool.Parent.Parent.Character.

 local Tool = script.Parent
local Character = Tool.Parent.Parent.Character
local Debounce = false

Tool.Activated:Connect(function()
if not Debounce then
Debounce = true
Character.Torso.Anchored = true
wait(1)
Debounce = false
Character.Torso.Anchored =  false
end
end)
