1 sentence description of the problem (I was doing_______, and then __________ happened):

I was helping my sister code a game, and the scenes weren’t working. I was trying to get to scene 6 but instead it took me to scene 4 and I tried switching around the code, and then every single time it went to scene 6.
Steps that the Hopscotch team can take to reproduce my problem every time:

  1. Make the scene code more efficient and clear.
  2. Maybe also make the names of the scenes in the “change scene to” block automatic, that also causes bugs for me.
    ….

I expected this to happen:
I expected to go to the scene that I coded it to go to.
But instead this happened:
whenever there was a scene change, it would go to the wrong scene.
Here’s a sweet screenshot:
this happened a little while ago, so I don’t have one.

can you link the project pls? It would be very helpful
If you can’t add link because of the trust level, add spaces in your link

Can you explain this bug with more elaborate detail?

I’m sadly not allowed to create links, I am only on trust level one.

These are really meant for ways to reproduce the bug not ways to solve it, however, do you have a link to this project by chance?

I don’t think this page is to tell tht how to fix the bug, but rather make it happen again so they can make sure

I might’ve misunderstood this tho

Oh wait CmStudios already said that

Hi! Like others already said, it would be great if you could post a link to the problematic project.

If you’re unable to embed a link in your post - check this topic for some more information.

I worked with scenes for my seed developer project and I noticed that when you change a scene’s name, it doesn’t update any blocks referring to the scene. Therefore, you have to manually go and change them whenever you’re updating the name of the scene that you’re switching to.

Well, I deleted it because I thought it was broken, but I can try to recreate it, publish it, and put the link.

I wouldn’t do that, to replicate it exactly you may need the same device

No, I actually used it before, too. I was helping her code something on it.
