Print and warn statements no longer working


Issue: Print and warns statements do not work within a local script, located in ReplicatedStorage. This issue happens 100% of the time.
Steps to reproduce:

  1. Make a blank place
  2. Place LocalScript in replicatedstorage
  3. Put print(“Hello world”) in localscript
  4. Run
  5. Observe no output

The wiki says that local scripts only execute in:

  • A Player’s Backpack , such as a child of a Tool
  • A Player’s character model
  • A Player’s PlayerGui
  • A Player’s PlayerScripts .
  • The ReplicatedFirst service


LocalScripts dont run outside of Player-Oriented things or a Player’s Character.


If I am correct local scripts can only run in the client, and I do not think Replicated Storage is apart of the client

If I am wrong please correct me.
ndrwcswll just posted the answer.


Did they change it? I remember they used to work in RS.


Scripts have never been able to run from ReplicatedStorage.


Maybe you are thinking of ReplicatedFirst?




You should mark @ndrwcswll’s post as the solution.
