Property question


I’m new to using the game engine part of blender. Just have a question about python scripting.

Using blender version 2.53

I have a main scene and an overlay scene (hud). I’ve attached a script to my character in the main scene and i want it to access properties of an object in the overlay scene from the script on my main character.

My question is, what would i put in the script to allow it access to the objects of the overlay scene from the main scene?

I’ve tried the “getCurrentScene()” but it just allows me to access the objects of the main scene and not the overlay scene.
