I'm making a dungeon-crawler adventure map, and at the end I would like the system to tell the player, either within the chat or on screen (using /title) these criteria:

  • Number of deaths
  • Number of rooms entered (out of X)
  • Number of mobs killed
  • Number of times fell in lava/from a high place

Things like that. I know that there's a way so that the player can press tab or have it displayed on the right of the screen, but I would like it so it's kind of a credits thing.

  • Is your question just how to display a death count, or how to display all of those things? What have you tried so far and what are you stuck on? – SirBenet May 25 '15 at 12:26
  • As far as I know, you can only get the death count, not the death cause. – Universal Electricity May 25 '15 at 12:39
  • I think you can get the cause as a subtype of the death stat. I can't check for sure right now, though. – MBraedley May 25 '15 at 12:48
  • @colorfusion I'm asking the command to have the death cout/other counts (as scoreboard stats) displayed in either the chat (Ex. /say @a deathCount) or as a title (/title deathCount) – SweetDelight May 25 '15 at 14:44
  • @SweetDelight So, if I'm understanding right, you already have the objectives set up, and just want to know how to say them into chat/a title? – SirBenet May 25 '15 at 15:13

As you already have the objectives set up and working, it's fairly simple to output them. You'll need to use the JSON format to get the player's score, like this:


Where ObjectiveName is the name of the objective you want to get the player's value of.

/title already accepts JSON data, so all you need to do is:

/title @p title ["",{"score":{"name":"*","objective":"ObjectiveName"}}]

/say doesn't accept the JSON format, so you should use /tellraw instead, which does:

/tellraw @p ["",{"score":{"name":"*","objective":"ObjectiveName"}}]

If you want it as part of a sentence, you could change the JSON part to something like:

["You have died ",{"score":{"name":"*","objective":"ObjectiveName"}}, " times."]

  • Can you add how one would you go about embedding the score into a sentence, like: "You died X times."? I assume it's just ["You died ",{...}," times."]? – MrLemon May 26 '15 at 17:07
  • @MrLemon Yep, that's how you do it. I'll add that to the answer. – SirBenet May 26 '15 at 17:11
  • @colorfusion Thank you so much! You're a lifesaver. – SweetDelight May 27 '15 at 2:53
