What is the error you get? (Or is there one?)

There is no error. It just won't parse the data

My save game loading code which works perfectly:

func read_file():
    var save_game = File.new()
    if not save_game.file_exists("user://savegame.save"):
        state = empty_save

    save_game.open("user://savegame.save", File.READ)
    state = parse_json(save_game.get_as_text())
by (134 points)

Would this work with my code ?

You will have to put it in and adjust it if necessary, but it wil work
