Hi, i am trying to make a ban/Unban system, in this case, the admin writes down a name of a player to ban, but i want it to ban the player even though he is offline or in another server. Is there any way to check if the player written exist?
It is possible to do this using two functions provided by the Players service. I suggest you read the documentation for the Players service and DataStore service. I have provided some of these below.
This will work, ensure you wrap it in a pcall though, as it will error your script without (whether the async fails or not, if the username doesn’t exist, it’s going to error).
local success, content = pcall(function() print('Here is my pcall function!') end if success then warn('Successful!') end
This will error because ‘ansdnjkasdkjnasd’ isn’t a value.
local success, content = pcall(function() print(ansdnjkasdkjnasd) end if not success then warn('Unsuccessful! Error message: '..content) end
oh, okay, Thanks a lot, i did not know that existed,i will read that documentry thanks a lot
