Why search an alternative to the system expressions that are exactly doing what you are attempting to do and requiring ?
Also I'm confused by what you said : "so if I told an object to move that the player spawns in with that specific x, y coordinates, it would go there and not be on the player's screen."
Could you detail exactly, and in order, what you are doing, what you are attempting to do, what you'd expect to do and what you are currently experiencing ?
Posting a capx is not a bad idea either.
You mention spawning something.

I'm trying to make some Undertale fangame, so I'm trying to make that heart thing when you encounter a battle go in a specific spot in the screen. The problem is, I don't know the expression for the X and Y of the screen, just regular X and Ys.
The Regular X and Y that I'm using for the heart to move to is: 45, 452.5
Here is a video to explain my problem: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bw7SYAAkapF1MFJrQnpfa2YtMGc/view
On the first section of the video, it shows where the heart is supposed to move on to the screen, after I refreshed the page, I moved away from that section of the layout, and then the heart went to those regular coordinates.
I'm trying to ask is, Is there a expression I can use so I can move that heart over to that section of the screen, like the X, Y of the Screen?
