UIS.InputBegan function not firing?

Hello! I have made a code for a GUI at the start of my game, everything seems to be working fine EXCEPT the ‘UIS.InputBegan’ function in the script.

I have put ‘print(“”)’ between ‘UIS.InputBegan’ and ‘if Input.KeyCode’ and it printed but when i put ‘print(“”)’ inside of ‘if Input.KeyCode’ nothing happens? I have also tried ‘Input.UserInputType’ but still nothing.

this is a very common issue and i’ve read it everytime.
from what i see, i assume you’re using a basic script. since you’re using Players.PlayerAdded.
UserInputService doesn’t fire InputBegan for normal scripts, because it’s for an entire server, and not a single player. so, you should move the UserInputService handler to a localscript inside StarterPlayerScripts.

Yea that’s something i forgot to mention, it already is a LocalScript i just didn’t put it in StarterPlayerScripts. But even then it still won’t work?

Do you have any errors? Please, send the script and its type (Local, Server, Script where RunContext=Client) to understand what the problem is.

Why are you accessing every player’s PlayerGui from the client? Everyone else’s PlayerGui is not replicated to other clients

Well then how can i access the player’s GUI?

Here’s the script (Local Script).
StartingScreen.lua (1.3 KB)

Also no i don’t get any errors.

It still doesn’t work for some reason.

If it’s a server script then you can’t access the UserInputService, if it’s a local script then you can’t access other player’s GUIs. Your LOCAL script should be something like this:

local UIS = game:GetService("UserInputService")
local TS = game:GetService("TweenService")
local TI = TweenInfo.new(0.75, Enum.EasingStyle.Linear, Enum.EasingDirection.In)
local MainGui = game.Players.LocalPlayer.PlayerGui:WaitForChild("MainGui")
local SB64 = MainGui.SB64
local Dark = MainGui.Darkness
local Bright = MainGui.Brightness
local T1 = TS:Create(Dark, TI, {BackgroundTransparency = 1})
local T2 = TS:Create(Bright, TI, {BackgroundTransparency = 0})
local T3 = TS:Create(Bright, TI, {BackgroundTransparency = 1})
Bright.Visible = false
SB64.Visible = true
Dark.Visible = true
Dark.Visible = false
		if input.KeyCode == Enum.KeyCode.A or input.KeyCode == Enum.KeyCode.ButtonStart then
			Bright.Visible = true
			SB64.Visible = false
			Bright.Visible = false

Wait, so i don’t need the PlayerAdded part?

No! You need to place this LOCALscript in StarterPlayerScripts. So that each player has his own script and his own gui, since the server cannot access the UserInputService

Local scripts in StarterPlayerScripts will already run for each player that logs into your game, but locally so you would use just one Players.LocalPlayer instead of iterating over :GetPlayers()

It still won’t work, even though i followed your instructions.

If you modified anything from @3YbuKtOp’s script can you post your modified version? Were there any errors in the output? How did it fail? what were you expecting it to do?

Have an error? I typed quickly so maybe I missed something.
