Making text visible & invisible Unit 3 Final Projects

Hello there,
I have students working on their final game projects and multiple students are creating start screens, most with a command to start the game. They then want the text for score, lives, health etc to appear once the game is started, but not at the start screen they have made. This is a particular issue I have not been able to figure out, especially with sprite backgrounds & the regular text blocks.
Please help!


Welcome to the forum! There have been a number of forum discussions over the years on how to create start screens. There are a few good ideas in this thread and I’m sure one (or combinations of them) will be helpful. @melynn has had a lot of success with the technique she references in this thread and I share an idea of creating an empty variable that fills with text when it is needed.

Hope this helps!
