I am making my first game and already understand that a changing text field can be placed in the long grey "status bar" GUI using commands like:
@HOTSPOT@ or @SCORE@ ...BUT
What I would like to know is how to display a general entity in the status bar. For instance, let's say I define new global integers (I want more score-like variables to stand for things like money, health, time, etc) and I want them to keep updating their values in the status bar display field at the top. How do I do this? I've tried playing around and dug into a lot of tutorials but haven't been able to find out...
Thanks so much for your help.
