Something like this should work:

onready var saveHandle = File.new()

func saveUserData(dict):
    saveHandle.open(persistFile, File.WRITE)

Then, call saveUserData() like:


Note, the above is extracted from a working persistence script, so you may need to season it to taste.

and how do i convert the json to dict? asking because i need to load it

edit: nvm i got it thanks for helping :)

I see you got it, but in case it's helpful, to load, use something like this:

saveHandle.open(persistFile, File.READ)
saveDict = parse_json(saveHandle.get_line())
