il fix it just give me a moment

this is the code for datastore that doesnt work for me

ok you got a clear error at line 8,9 and 10 because you’re defining the variable points but you’re using coins change those lines to :

local Coins ="IntValue")
Coins.Name = "Coins"
Coins.Parent = leaderstats
Coins.Value = 5

10 has no line wdym it just blank

here are actuall numbers

mb its 27,28,29 and 30 i didnt see things well u didnt ss the first half of line numbers

here is full ss of the scriptt

yes i know its lines 27 to 30 change them to the script i wrote

ok trying it now il reply when im done testing

i changed it does this look right

im pretty sure i put everything in right

are the script in the ss and this one conflicting?

local db = true
if hit.Parent:FindFirstChild(“Humanoid”) ~= nil then
if db == true then
db = false
script.Parent.Transparency = 1
local player = game.Players:GetPlayerFromCharacter(hit.Parent)
player.leaderstats.Coins.Value = player.leaderstats.Coins.Value + 500
script.Parent.Transparency = 1
db = true
script.Parent.Transparency = 0
