1 sentence description of the problem (I was doing _________, and then __________ happened):
I was working on my st Patrick’s day project and adding a particle system that uses square clones of the player to make a cool effect (not even a lot just like 5) then I run the project and it glitches and won’t let me go back into the editor so I try to publish an update so I don’t loose everything and it’s like: whoops something went wrong and I had to re fresh the app to do anything so I lost my progress it wasn’t the WiFi because everything before that was working fine so sorry for long description
Steps that the Hopscotch team can take to reproduce my problem every time:

  1. Make a game with clones and make them move around and do something
  2. Play it
    ….

I expected this to happen:
It works
But instead this happened:
It broke
Here’s a sweet screenshot: I don’t have screenshot because i lost all of it

This may not be fixable but it has happened for a while and I just want to prevent it from happening to other people in the future :slight_smile:

Sometimes my iPad crashes within 20 sec of just opening an app. If you have a lot of storage used you should reduce that. If not idk.

Hmm, usually a common bug - when using clones (doesn’t even matter how much) it can be really glitchy sometimes. :))

yes, but in smashy i use 3 clones per button and it doesn’t lag lol

It usually just depends on how ur device is feeling. Mine is usually sad or angry so lots of problems happen. Like my apps crashing every 10-30 sec.

Well, its mainly random. All I’ve seen is that when using scenes or clones, your project may be glitchy. Especially when using both, but its mostly random when it happens.

It was when I played the project and then I got scared and tried to publish an update so I wouldn’t loose everything but it wouldn’t let me publish
