This morning I saw someone remix my projects and amazing creators such as William04GamerA.
But I think the system should be able to see if they remixed but didn’t add credit of changed anything noticeable.
But if they didn’t they cannot remix that project.
All so maybe that could possibly have suspicions if someone is copying a code.
I agree, you make a good point
I disagee. This is not needed
There is also a hashtag on the app in usernames: Stop No Credit Remixes
@AECREATION, in my opinion I do not think the system for detecting remixes should be determined by wether or not certain amount of code was changed. I believe this would create confusion as to who the actual creator is as due to no real way of telling wether which project is the actual remix or not
Also the remix tag is also an easy and fast way to find the original creators account.
This is a pretty good idea, but there are a few things to consider:
What about art pad/high score remixes? Would a new system need to be implemented to “show screenshot” instead of “remix project”?
In the case above, would a new project still be created but just pull code from the older one?
Maybe creators have to approve unmodified remixes? (though I could see this costing more than it’s worth)
As for the technical side, it’s pretty easy to do. By just removing any deleted code and mapping UUIDs (unique identifiers) of rules/objects/abilities to a consistent pattern, you can quite literally compare the projects side by side.
Bonus: I have created a remix detection project, though there is some weird stuff going on behind the scenes of it. You can try to save it as a draft or remix it and the message is different. While that in itself is pretty cool, it doesn’t really help the issue of determining if a remix has code changed at all though.
That does give me an idea – a project comparison tool to show all the differences between two HS projects
Edit: I do also agree with FP & TCMS – I don’t think Hopscotch wants to make those fundamental changes to the remix system.
