OK i have looked everywhere and for the life of me i can not find a guide that explains how to add 0s in front of a death counter.
what do i mean by this.. well I'm currently using a "global number" with a simple collision detection for my player.. so when the player collides with the x objects it adds a death to my "global number = deaths" then a text box prints the deaths out on screen.. what i have looked for i can't seem to find.. because this system adds up it douse not achieve the desired look i want. currently it displays my sore as 1 death... 5 deaths.. 15 deaths.. and so on.. and i would like it to be displayed as 00001 deaths... 00005 deaths... 00015 deaths you get the picture..
i appreciate the help!
Thanks in advance!!!

Pad number out to a certain number of digits by adding zeroes in front of the number, then returning the result as a string. For example, zeropad(45, 5) returns the string "00045".
