    When you write your own HUD and you want it to show Health or Armor you let it show the value. And the value is LocalPlayer():Health()

    But how can i get the value for hunger/energy? I KNOW in the darkrp wiki it shows

    but when i let it show that the lua script makes a error and doesnt work. heres the whole code for my hunger hud


    With health and armor it all works fine. But there im using LocalPlayer():Health() instead of Player:getDarkRPVar("Energy")

    Also if anyoner knows, how do i remove the darkrp standart hud? The Half life 2/gmod hud ican remove. but how do i remove the darkrp hud? thx for every answer

    Ok i figured it out. By extracting a other DarkRP Hud by someone else and look what they used to get the value..seems like the darkrp Wiki isnt that updated anymore? Cause it doesnt work with "Player:getDarkRPVar("Energy")" but with LocalPlayer().DarkRPVars.Energy


    local varname = LocalPlayer().DarkRPVars.Energy

    No, nothing is wrong with the DarkRP Wiki. The reason Player is throwing a nil value error is because Player does not exist. Player needs to be defined somewhere in the code. In your code previously, Player is nothing at all. You would need to define Player.

    Code (Lua):

    hook.Add("HUDPaint", "Hunger", function()
        local Player = LocalPlayer()
        local hunger = Player:getDarkRPVar("Energy")
        draw.SimpleText(hunger, "HUD", 10 + 150, 100, Color(255, 0, 0), 1, 1)
    As for the default DarkRP hud appearing, I do believe there is an option to disable it in the config file or the cl_hudreplacement.lua

    Yeah, nothing's wrong with the Wiki. Player isn't being defined.
    "The server does not know who, or what "Player" Is."

    Also, I'm assuming you copy pasted from the Wiki without changing "Player." That is the worst way to get into coding.
    Go look up some Lua tutorials before you start copy/pasting code. At least that way, you'll know what you're doing.

    Thx, but ive been watching videos from thecodingbeast and Code Blue and they are REALLY helpfull. It was code blues recommendation to use gmod wiki, so thats what i did. ..actually, i used darkrp wiki for this one variable. Which didnt worked..but it worked with Sit Klutchs Answer

    That's most likely why, because it looks like you're copy pasting. The code won't work just by copy/pasting it in. You NEED To LEARN how to setup variables, and call Entities properly.
    The HUD does NOT know what "Player" is. Player is not automatically defined on the HUD/Client, just LocalPlayer() is.

    You setup your script wrong, there's nothing wrong with the wiki.

    Client. The client does not know what Player is.*
