Thank you, my beautiful friend, but I don’t understand what you mean here

20 character limitation cheat text !!!

Replies in the forum have to be at least 20 characters. So, for short replies people will add extra text to get around the silly rule

Well done, now you understand,
let me wish you a happy life and the fulfillment of all your dreams

As far as I know Java isn’t used anywhere in Gdevelop. Javascript is the core language that the events basically get translated into. Java and Javascript are very different languages that unfortunately have similar names.

So what do you suggest?
What language is used then?

This should help

GDevelop Architecture Overview

To clarify, there are three different ways to answer this:

  1. Your games made in GDevelop do not use a code-based programming language. You are not programming in any coded language when you work in the event sheet. The event sheet is the (Visual) scripting language. The only exception to this is Javascript events which are generally not used.
  2. Exported games are converted to Javascript in an HTML5 wrapper.
  3. The GDevelop engine itself is a combination of Javascript, Typescript, and C++.
