So, I’m trying to expand my knowledge by making a hot bar with items. I currently have a system that I think will work, where it checks the previous inventory array with the new inventory array, detecting changes. I’m using a for loop for this, but I plan on having 9 separate slots that I need to modify, and I don’t know how I’d change the item sprite for a specific slot. I’ve tried setting a slot array where all the slots are set by something like this;
for i=1,9,1 do slots[i] = gui.get_node("slot", i,) end
but that only reads it as if it was
slots[i] = gui.get_node("slot")
Do I just have to manually set each index in the array to the node? Or is there a way I can do it similar to this?
