Hi @MasterOX 水. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- To keep track of each player's score in NormalVR, you can use the RealtimeDictionary collection. This collection works similarly to a Dictionary<uint, ModelType>. It is commonly used to represent a model that can have fields that are dynamically added or removed at runtime. For example, if you need to store the score for N players, you could create a ScoreModel and store instances of it in a RealtimeDictionary using each player's clientID as the key. This way, you can easily manage and update the scores for each player in real-time. Here is the relevant documentation for more details: RealtimeDictionary (https://normcore.io/documentation/room/collections#non-transactional-collections) ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

a dictionary is a collection of models but one thing to keep in mind is that you don't get update events for changes to the contents of the collection an easy way around that is to add an int property next to the collection which you increment when you change the score of a player if you need updates

any model related stuff you can also use model==null to test

you can disable scripts until it stops happening and then add a code break where you think it might happen then you can view the values of each property in your IDE

oke, but it does happen right before i activate the start game method, and now that i think about it, most of the time i click on start game as fast as possible. so its most likely because of that
