help! godot kep calling this error, this is the code:

onready var Alien = get_tree().get_root().get_node("Level 1/Alien")
onready var muzzle = get_tree().get_root().get_node("Level 1/Player/Muzzle")

func _ready():
    if Global.araragi:
        #var copy = preload ("res://Actors/Alien.tscn") 
        var copy = Alien.duplicate()
        copy.transform = $Muzzle.global_transform

the error is in the line "owner.add_child(copy)" I used duplicate and preload but none works, I even use the print to know that "copy" exist and tells me its name is KinematicBody2D:1261, but still doesnt work.

I used a similar code in other scene and worked fine.

Godot version Godot_v3.2.3-stable_win64

Try to run print(owner), it looks like owner is null

you are right! owner is the one null, but I don't understand why it worked in another scene but not here

at first, please download the current version of Godot (3.5) an use that instead. 3.2 is pretty old.

The problem is not copy, but owner.
I can only guess, but probably you want get_tree().current_scene instead.

you are rgiht, owner is null haha, thank you, what I don't understand is why it worked in another scene though

so I use the gettree().currentscene instead of owner? and sorry for asking too much, I'm a noob in game programming

I'll download the latest godot version too
