Ok, that answers my question then. Was simply wondering.
I think I found a problem with either the text object or variables.
I have an object named "player" with the variable "health" and wanted to have the text show the variables value so I set the text to: player.health, each tick. However the text object displays nothing when I do this. However, if I instead set the text to: "Health:" & player.health, then it displays both the text and the value. I added it to the tracker with the capx.
