Steps to make the problem happen:
1.go into project many times
2.it might blank out
….

I expected this to happen: I expected it to keep on working

But instead this happened:It blanked out into a white screen

Here’s a sweet screenshot:I cannot find one because it happens randomly

Are you talking about where sometimes you open a project and it sits there loading forever and then when you hit the home button it tells you a problem occurred?


#3

No it’s not that. Try this game and get past 800 in 3D. There’s some old bug that makes everything disappear.


#4

At a score of 946 in 3D mode on the Hopscotch webplayer in Google Chrome (version 66.0.3359.117), nothing disappeared. Everything worked just fine.


#5

Oh. Maybe they got rid of the bug. But last week it happened (the code glitches and screen clears) and I have to exit the game and come back

That is weird. It might depend on what device you are using though. I suggest that you ask @ThinBuffalo to take a look at your code. If you do that, you will most likely get a super-clear response and explaination.


#8

Ok. I will ask him. Maybe it’s just a bug in my code but it happens randomly

Hi @H.A.M.S.T.E.R.2018

Do you by chance have an IPad Air 2?

Projects turning white after they initially play properly is most likely this bug related to use of a Set Text block with a variable:

Set Text causes “Whomp”

It used to display a Whomp message but now the screen just goes white.
THT is aware and has tried to fix it but so far has been unable to.

Post #14 in the topic linked above shows a work around to extend to time until the screen goes white.

It is random, indeed. It worked, even if I had a score of 1000. And that was on an iPad Air 2.


#11

I am not on an iPad Air 2 but I get the same bug at about 8000. It is random.

That’s COAN’s rocket simulator at a height of 10,000,000,000 km


#13

That is weird. What Hopscotch and iOS version do you have? Can you find an update on the App Store? A new update with bug fixes was released a few days ago.

As this happens in COAN’s projects as well, maybe ask him too? @CreationsOfaNoob


#14

Yeah, that project tends to crash after a while. I’ve found it mostly happening while going downwards really fast.


#15

I just found an update, but it doesn’t seem to work.


#16

Okay, that’s sad. What’s not working?


#17

It still blanks out.


#18

Hmmmmm… that’s very weird


#19

Super weird. I don’t know what to do then. Have you emailed THT?


#20

I just want to revive this topic…
Still happening to me
