I made a save and load system and I'm sure that save works fine because I made two buttons, one changes variables other one save files. I used a hex editor and the value was equal to variable so it works. But problem is with loading. I have an button that calls LoadData() function (shown bellow)

func LoadData():
var SFile =
if SFile.file_exists(SavePath):
    var SError =, File.READ)
    if SError == OK:
        var GameData = SFile.get_var()

After pressing load value should show in a label. Bellow is a dictionary:

var GameData = {
    "Level" : Variables.Level,

(I use global variables)

Here is label code:

func _process(_delta):
    $LevelStarDisplay.text = str(Variables.Level)

And as I said after loading this "Level" variable should be shown in this label but it's not. Default value is 0 and it's showing 0 after running again and pressing load button even though hex editor shows right value. I also tried using "print()" to check if LoadData() function reads it right and it does because it printed out everything right. print(GameData)

If needed I can show more code.

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Is variables another script?

Should it be

"Level" : $Variables.Level,

Yes It is in another script but I put it in Autoload.

Hi I am sorry I have been drinking so I really shouldnt have come on here to answer any questions. Below is some code I wrote for an old game which worked, hopefully it will help you.

var savedata = {}

func save_score():
    var file ="res://SaveScore.dat", File.WRITE)

func add_savedata():
    savedata = {
        "difficulty" : difficulty,
        "highscore" : highscore,
        "language" : language,
        "move_left" : move_left,
        "move_right" : move_right,
        "move_up" : move_up,
        "move_down" : move_down,
        "main_fire" : main_fire,
        "alt_fire" : alt_fire

func load_score():
    var filecheck =
    if filecheck.file_exists("res://SaveScore.dat"):
        var file ="res://SaveScore.dat", File.READ)
        savedata = file.get_var()

func unpack_load():
    difficulty = savedata["difficulty"]
    highscore = savedata["highscore"]
    language = savedata["language"]
    move_left = savedata["move_left"]
    move_right = savedata["move_right"]
    move_up = savedata["move_up"]
    move_down = savedata["move_down"]
    main_fire = savedata["main_fire"]
    alt_fire = savedata["alt_fire"]

Thank you very much, It works now!
