Hello, I am new to construct and I have a question.
I have created a character who is running over the screen. I have pined a text to him and I am wondering how to make a variable for his name so that on a start screen you can type in a name and that will be shown above the player.
The basics are something like this:
Create global variable PlayerName
make a textbox
on textbox changed set global variable Playername to : textbox.text
set the pinned textobject text to : Playername
