My script won't execute when the game initiates.

It's just a simple "print('Hello')". It works when I click "run script" but not automatically when the game initiates. I have tried 3 different versions of Blender and still no luck.

When I used to use Blender, about 2 years ago, I remember it working fine, but for some reason it has stopped working. Is there anything I can do? Thank you.

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to BSE! Do you have a python controller with the script selected in your game? And does it run on startup? You might want to upload a .blend because we have very little information right now $\endgroup$ – palkonimo Jul 27 '16 at 17:47
  • $\begingroup$ Have you (re)tried your script with the version of Blender it was written for at the origin ? $\endgroup$ – lemon Jul 27 '16 at 17:57
  • $\begingroup$ @palkonimo I don't think I do but I don't recall needing it, maybe I'm wrong. Here is the .blend file: filedropper.com/untitled_143 $\endgroup$ – Tom Jul 27 '16 at 18:04
  • $\begingroup$ @lemon I have tried that. $\endgroup$ – Tom Jul 27 '16 at 18:05
  • $\begingroup$ ok... you have tried that, but does it still work ? (nothing is explicitly said about that). Can you indicate the Blender version used at the origin ? $\endgroup$ – lemon Jul 27 '16 at 18:16

Your python script is not running because you only created it, you did not tell it to run. To do this, first open up the Logic Editor.Step 1

Then, create an Always Sensor, and a Python Controller. Set the script to be the name of your script (In this case, Text). Now, click Level on the Always Sensor, to make it run once. Step 2

Finally, connect the two blocks, and you're good to go! Step 3

Here is the result in the command line: Done


Your script ins't executed anywhere. If you want it to be executed at the start of your game you'll need to have an always sensor connected to a python controller having the script in it. This can be in any object. the setup
