I am trying to make the roblox chat say 'Welcome to my game' but it keeps having an error

13:28:42.679 - Players.tjtorin.PlayerGui.LocalScript:2: ')' expected (to close '(' at line 1) near '=' Here is my code:

game:GetService("StarterGui"):SetCore("ChatMakeSystemMessage",(
Text = "Welcome to my game!"
Color = Color3.new(255/255,0/255,0/255)
Font = Enum.Font.SourceSansLight
FontSize = Enum.FontSize.Size32
))

You are using parenthesis instead of brackets. On lines 1 and 6, change the inner parenthesis into brackets like so:

game.StarterGui:SetCore("ChatMakeSystemMessage", { --Bracket
Text = "Welcome to my game!"; --Semicolons!!
Color = Color3.new(255,0,0);
Font = Enum.Font.SourceSansLight;
FontSize = Enum.FontSize.Size32;
}) --Bracket


Hope that helps

Oops, I forgot the semicolons. Make sure to add semicolons after each line within the bracket. I updated the code above so you can see dpark19285 370 — 2y

You are using parenthesis instead of brackets. The script will not work. CheckeredDev 251 — 8mo
