I've looked and can't figure out how to do it, I'm trying to make a Karma system for my map and I want to use the fake players trick. I'm trying to make a good and bad karma system where the player presses a button to get 1 good karma point or presses the other button to get a bad karma point so that if the player looks at the scoreboard on the side it will show their good and bad karma points I already have the scoreboard setup which I named Karma just need to know how to do the other parts.

    Can you explain what you mean/want by "fake players"? – Meh Jun 10 '17 at 2:41
  • Like I've seen people use armor stands that are invisible as "fake players" to have more then one like objective line on a scoreboard. – CloverlessRobin Jun 10 '17 at 2:48
  • So basically another entity which is attached to a player? – Meh Jun 10 '17 at 2:51
  • Yes, I'd like to make it so everytime that button is pressed the "fake player" named Good Karma has its score go up by 1 point – CloverlessRobin Jun 10 '17 at 2:55
  • I don't think it's possible with your situation. I'm pretty sure that would require you to use a variable in commands, which isn't possible right now (I've encountered that barrier a few times). – Meh Jun 10 '17 at 3:24

This is possible: a fake-player or a variable ist with this makeable:

/scoreboard objectives add KARMA dummy

/scoreboard objectives setdisplay sidebar KARMA

(the score "KARMA" will be show, if one a button is pushed)


/scoreboard players add good_karma KARMA 1


/scoreboard players add bad_karma KARMA 1

The points will be add not set.


Same thing as dude above. I just change one thing: I make a scoreboard objective and I give all of my fake players 1, so I can use them in commands by clicking their name, like normal player selectors. It isn’t necessary, but I like to use it if I want the same artificial player to store multiple values from different scoreboards. Hope this can be useful for you in the future.
