Decimals in HSB colors may no longer work


#1

This explanation might be longer than intended, but i'll still say this.

First, you'll have to look at MagmaPOP's "Colors of Cupcake" project: https://c.gethopscotch.com/p/xg2rwf8zu

Nearly every HSB code in this project has decimals points, the creator of the project did this so he could have the colors be exactly the same to cupcake's.

I used 2 of these HSBs for a project, and they both have decimals. This is my project: https://c.gethopscotch.com/p/yp2fzh8qb

If you look closely at Cupcake's bow and the bow I coded, they aren't the exactly the same anymore even though I put in the HSBs correctly with the decimal points. This could be because the numbers after the decimal point won't count anymore, making the actual color more simple.

I honestly want decimals to work again, so we could get more unique colors with more possibilities. What do you think?


#2

Darn, I got the wrong link for the second link. This is my project:


#3

Perhaps it's because of the different servers? I'm not sure. I've used HSB colors, and they looked a little different than what I see online, despite using the same numbers and/or decimals. So yeah,
I think that it is because of the different servers.


#4

What do you mean by different servers? Are you saying that after Hopscotch's layout completely changed to the iPhone layout, that's when decimals stopped working?


#5

Not completely changed, but yes.

@Rodrigo @Liza

I'm very sorry if I am taking up time, but was removing the function of decimals in HSBs intended?


#7

Just do the RGB version


#8

Does RGB work with decimals? If so, I wonder why HSB doesn't anymore then.


#9

RGB doesn't use decimals as far as I know.


#10

I use the old editor when you need to copy-paste the HSB color value, and it works fine with decimals. I have no idea about the newer update though :slight_smile:


#11

Wow. That is old. Why do you do that? The new editor is more efficient and has better features.


#12

Tbh I prefer the old editor better because I find it more simple and it's easier to drag stuff, that may be the reason why some people do that, but I respect your choice


#13

I don't know, it is a family iPad and my brother can't play his favorite game if we upgrade it to iOS 10 (it is on iOS 7), and the new editor is on iOS 7+. I have an iPad with iOS 10 (the one that I am writing this post with), it has the newer editor and I use that sometimes, but I mostly use the old version.
I don't know how I got here, but sorry for the late reply.

You're lucky. I wish I had Th old editor just so I could remember it. Hehe.

By the way, I hated the new one before it was cool to hate it.
