Parrot: is this a bug? [CLOSED]

Use this template to make awesome bug reports:

Your username: SereneCygnet

What kind of device are you using?: iPhone 5

1 sentence description of the problem (I was doing _________, and then __________ happened): I was making a project with some sweet new characters, and one of them didn’t show up in the player!

Steps that the Hopscotch team can take to reproduce my problem every time:

  1. make a project
  2. use Parrot in the editor
  3. play the project

I expected this to happen: Parrot would show up in the player and dance like all the other characters, who have the exact same code.

But instead this happened: Parrot was visible and editable in the editor, but not in the player.

Here are some sweet screenshots:
editor:

player:


thanks so much! I can provide a link to the project too if need be. I expect this’ll be solved fairly quickly lol; I’m just a troglodyte

Wow That’s weird… maybe parrot isn’t optimized for last version?

also noticed that on the forum, the bug report form fills in the post editor only when you make a topic in the overarching bugs category; it doesn’t autofill if your topic is in a subcategory.
actually I probably have the means to fix that I’ll look into it

Hi @Serenity this was a bug we had in the past. But I can’t reproduce it in the latest version. Which version of Hopscotch are you using?

From the screenshot, it appears that you have an older version of crocodile (I can tell cause his teeth are black in the middle)

Parrot should still render though?

the parrot renders for me. But if you have a project where it doesn’t work, please send over

Doesn’t work in the project Serenity linked

Hmm. Well, I think Serenity’s project is an older version. Parrot was way back, so why would that be broken though?

I tried @Serenity’s project on the latest version of Hopscotch. I have the crocodile bug (i.e. the old croc looks like a monkey) but the parrot does show up.
