This topic is for sharing projects using the new wait til timestamp block.

Wait, the what block?

Yesterday, I discovered a new block (new meaning added since summer 2017) called wait til time stamp. It’s type thingy is 19, if you want to use it. When it’s has a parameter (the exact same as a regular wait block), it looks like a blue block that says " milliseconds" followed by a number bubble. Today, COAN and I figured out how it works. It basically takes a Unix timestamp (with three zeroes added because it’s milliseconds, not seconds) and waits until then. So basically, it’s a wait until 2:00 on December 12 2030 Block if you want it to be. Or a wait until any time block.

Post your projects using it below.

How did CoaN make that clock project? (Answered)
#2

I don’t get how it works…


#3

What don’t you get about it?


#4

How we are supposed to utilize it.


#5

I don’t know.

Making clocks, adding secret features that you can use after a certain time.

Lots of uses.


#6

Honestly that’s really true. I don’t think people would know to open a project at a certain time without a notice, and even then you could just look at the code to see what the secret inside is.

BUT, you could make a working clock with an “every second” sort of thing if you can socket variables into that time thing. o.o You would have to set it though.


#7

How do you get this block


#8

How do I make it? I don’t get how to use it.


#9

:open_mouth: My mind has been blown to Africa.


#10

You edit the json file of the project.

What I do is change a wait block in the json.

I change it from type 23 or whatever to type 19, and add til timestamp after the current description. Then I copy and paste it in the app. If you don’t see it after editing the json file, check the change color ability.


The block? See above.

You’ll figure it out.



#11

Awesome! This is just mind-blowing. How do you find all these hidden blocks? Do you just change the numbers randomly and see what happens?


#12

We dig into the Webplayer where there is a section called “HSBlockTrait” or something like that, and it lists all blocks and their IDS


#13

This is amazing, I never expected anything like this to ever be done in Hopscotch!


#14

When looking a “The webplayer”, does that mean your looking at the actual code of hopscotch? And how do you access the webplayer?


#15

You look at the code for the Hopscotch player.

It’s in the webplayer folder of Hopscotch’s files.


#16

I also think that it is available online. If I am correct, I think that I have the link to it somewhere on my computer.


#17

I was baffled for a minute, I forgot about that block! Nice find.


#18

Please say that fish block was a troll


#19

If you do have that link could you share it here? I’m really interested in taking a look at this


#20

Yeah it was 22.

With a fancy key.
