Expected function call arguments after '('

Hi! I’m getting an error that the line 12 of my code, but I cant see the error.

local janela = game:GetService("Workspace").CurrentMission.Wilbur:WaitForChild("ToPlaceInWorkspace"):WaitForChild("Cameras"):WaitForChild("WindowCamera")


local janela = game:GetService("Workspace").CurrentMission.Wilbur:WaitForChild("ToPlaceInWorkspace"):WaitForChild("Cameras"):WaitForChild("WindowCamera"))

I don’t think this would be correct. There’s no reason to have an extra ) at the end. I’m not sure why the code is erroring, but it definitely isn’t because of a missing ) at the end.

Do correct me if I’m wrong!

This sounds like it’s actually a problem elsewhere in the script, since this is specifically referring to function arguments. The Lua parser can be a bit weird with this kind of thing, is there a function directly before or after this line?

What’s strange is that the script broke alone, withou I touching anything. It was working perfectly yesterday

Can you show the full script and a screenshot of the error in the output?

TouchPart.Touched:Connect(onTouch)

At the end of this line, there’s an extra parenthesis.

yes yes, i put it there as @saouvs said, but it looks wrong

Ok, do you see any code that’s underlined with red?

Nope, no code underlined with red

Try using workspace instead of game:GetService(“Workspace”), not that I know if it’ll work.

As I said, the code broked alone. It was working perfectly. And it also works fine in studio.
(going to try GetService then)

Can you check again if it works?

Tested in studio now, works perfectly. Now testing in game

Looking at the code, I saw no mistakes. I also tried putting it into my studio and checked it through Script Analysis. No errors here.

That’s why I said it is strange, looks like roblox hates me, lol

Just to make things look a bit nicer, should do the same thing tho.
