How to show the amount of cash you need (Difficulty of 3/10 🟨)


I made this in a game:

I shows the cash you have, and the cash you need.

Step one

Place an inventory item manager, set it to this:

Place a property, set it to this:

Place another property, set it to this:

(The default value is the cost of your item)
Place a button and a checker, settings:

(Button can do anything.)


(Value can be anything.)
Place a popup, make it open and run wire pulse block when the check fails. Wires here:

That’s all for step one!

Step two, the hard part

Place a trigger that triggers on the channel “Thing”.

In the block setting, put this:

(The number block is the cost of the item.)

What this does is it finds the difference between the cost and your cash, and sets a property to that.

In the popup you placed in step one, do this in the block settings:

Why this works

So, when the amount of cash changes, it sends a signal to the IIM. The IIM updates the cash property. Now, when the trigger triggers, it finds the difference between your cash and the cost, and makes that a property. The popup is just a way of displaying that.


Noice looks good. Maybe a difficulty of 4/10?

This is not a 4/10.

Sure, it has light block code, but not much. That works.

Easier, or harder?

Oh more or less?

I would suggest explaining the settings instead of just pics
less 3/10

FC’s guides were 95% pics. Almost no instructions. I also tend to just explain things without pics if I do that.

you aren’t Frozen_cursor and some people work better with words

I work too well with them, I made a guide and forgot to add pics, so it was a huge chunk of text.

This is a great guide, and I would say that it is 4/10, because

See? 5/10 has a little block code, like this guide, but considering that gimkit players are getting better then I would give it 4/10,

recently gimkit players have gotten a lot better.
some old guides rated 5/10 sometimes don’t even have block code.
but, I made snakes and ladders and it was rated a 5/10,
this means the gimkit community has gotten better, and understands more than they use to

I will most likely use the poll to decide. Thanks though!
