I am trying to emit a signal that connects to a separate scene.

I have three scripts that are processing a dialog box. I have my player "disabled" when he collides with the hit box to trigger the dialog box. When the dialog is finished, a signal is supposed to be emitted, which goes back and allows my player to start moving again.

Player script

extends KinematicBody2D

var active = true
var velocity = Vector2.ZERO
var roll_vector = Vector2.DOWN

export var ACCELERATION = 500
export var MAX_SPEED = 80
export var FRICTION = 500
export var ROLL_SPEED = 125

func _physics_process(delta: float) -> void:
    var input_vector = Vector2.ZERO
    input_vector.x = Input.get_action_strength("ui_right") - Input.get_action_strength("ui_left")
    input_vector.y = Input.get_action_strength("ui_down") - Input.get_action_strength("ui_up")
    input_vector = input_vector.normalized()

    if input_vector != Vector2.ZERO && active == true:
        if input_vector.x > 0:
        velocity = velocity.move_toward(input_vector * MAX_SPEED, ACCELERATION * delta)

        velocity = velocity.move_toward(Vector2.ZERO, FRICTION * delta)

    velocity = move_and_slide(velocity)

func _on_body_entered(body: Node) -> void:
    active = false
    MAX_SPEED = 0

func dialog_finished():
    active = true
    MAX_SPEED = 80

Dialog hit box script (same scene as player)

extends Area2D

const y = preload("res://UI/DialogeBox.tscn")
const z = preload("res://Player/Tom.tscn")

func _on_body_entered(body: Node) -> void:
    if "Tom" in body.name:
        var x = y.instance()
        x.connect("dialogue_finished", self, "_on_dialog_finished")
#       queue_free()

func _on_dialog_finished():
    print("done Talking")
    var tomin = z.instance()

Dialog box object script (separate scene from the two above)

extends RichTextLabel

signal dialogue_finished
var dialog = [This is just testing text", "Is that your luggage?"]
var page = 0

func _ready() -> void:

func _input(event):
    if Input.is_action_just_pressed("ui_accept"):
        if get_visible_characters() > get_total_character_count():
            if page < dialog.size()-1:
                page += 1


        elif get_visible_characters() < get_total_character_count():

func _on_Timer_timeout() -> void:

So at the end of it all, I am able to get through my dialog, but I am stuck there as my player does not get his movement turned back on from the signal not being carried over or something. Sorry if this is a bit much, but thanks for any help.

you need to do this:

func _ready():

#   print(OS.get_screen_size())
    get_node("Begin").connect("visibility_changed", self, "beginthere")
    get_node("Begin").connect("gui_input", self, "Begin")
    get_node("Load").connect("gui_input", self, "Load")
    get_node("Saved_Games").connect("gui_input", self, "Saved_Games")
    get_node("ColorRect/go_to_main_menu").connect("gui_input", self, "go_to_mainmenu")

    get_node("Scenes").connect("gui_input", self, "_on_Scenes_gui_input")

    get_node("Quit").connect("gui_input", self, "Quit")

#   get_node("Scenes/ScenesPopupMenu").connect("id_pressed", self, "_open_levels")

    get_node(".").find_node(str("go_to_main_menu")).connect("pressed", self, "_on_LoadSaved_toggled", [false])

    yield(get_tree().create_timer(0.5), "timeout")

    Node_PauseMenu.show_message(String("Enhanced " + OS.get_name() + " experience"), 3)

    get_node(".").connect("tree_entered", Global_batch, "is_mainmenu_on", [1])

    get_node(".").connect("tree_exited", Global_batch, "is_mainmenu_on", [0])

See the last 2 lines of code above. The tree should be forced to emit signal when entered the tree emit_signal("tree_entered"). But when tree is out, you just connect it

Then in Global script:

func is_mainmenu_on(value):
    if value == 0:
        Global_batch.mainmenu_on_or_off = false
        print(mainmenu_on_or_off, "jjop")
        if get_node("/root/Node_PauseMenu").get_node("Notouchdevice"):
            get_node("/root/Node_PauseMenu").get_node("Notouchdevice").visible = true
    if value == 1:
        Global_batch.mainmenu_on_or_off = true
        print(mainmenu_on_or_off, "true")
        if get_node("/root/Node_PauseMenu").get_node("Notouchdevice"):
            get_node("/root/Node_PauseMenu").get_node("Notouchdevice").visible = false

See that. Even it was _ready() function but not emitted. Thanks
