But whenever I hit play in unity, this error shows up :

FormatException: Input string was not in a correct format.

System.Number.StringToNumber (System.String str, System.Globalization.NumberStyles options, System.Number+NumberBuffer& number, System.Globalization.NumberFormatInfo info, System.Boolean parseDecimal) (at <437ba245d8404784b9fbab9b439ac908>:0)

ButtonManager.Update () (at Assets/Scripts/Button

Here is the code:

using System.Collections;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using UnityEngine;
using UnityEngine.SceneManagement;
using TMPro;

public class ButtonManager : MonoBehaviour

    public TMP_InputField input;
    public GameObject playerCharecter;

    int InputNumber;

     private void Update()

        InputNumber = int.Parse(input.text);
        playerCharecter.GetComponent<PlayerCharecter>().extraJumpsValue = InputNumber;

    You are doing this at every update, even when the input is empty! You should do this when clicking on a button, and you should use TryParse to avoid the exception:

    if (int.TryParse(w.text, out InputNumber))
       //InputNumber is correctly set!
       //Not a number!
