    Can anyone tell me how to begin game with default score say 10 for instance.

    I tried adding score lable on world screen but couldn't find a way to show default score on game start.

    you can create an action that has the required points you need, set its opacity to zero and then add it in the start scene just over the character.
    If you do this properly then you are going to start the game with a default score.

    You don't need to attach the action, just put it on top of the character at the very start of the scene @TheGameAppStudio

    Thank you it worked :D And one more thing i need to show Game Over when the score is 0.
    I tried adding an event observer with session points/coins zero but the game over shows at start of game i.e even when character has action with default score.

    Make the game over score 1. The score action at the start of the game plus 3 or something

    Tried that already .I set it as session coins 1 with score at beginning as 5 on scoring negative and when it reaches 1 it must show gameover.Session points/coins isn't helping here.This is because the value of session coins/points is always greater than 1 so it would show game over by default. ie 5>1 .ANyone with soultion @Benfont @AaroArts

    Oh yeah sorry didn't think it through and forgot about that one. Didn't picture out what game you're making too. Might help to do it the other way around. Enemies give you more points and when you reach a certain number of points it's game over.

    This video might help too

    you need to remove the dash character from your font in order to make it work.
    I use this website for that:
    https://fontstruct.com/

    take a font that is already created in the website and edit it by removing the dash character.

    Oh yeah. I think I remember that working for previous versions of Buildbox no matter what the font. Thanks for the hack @Benfont.
