One with just a text object and like two blocks of code XD

Amazing! I really like Siri shortcuts and all the possible things that you can do with it. Great job on this one! Unfortunately, my iPhone is the only device I have with Hopscotch on that has at least iOS 12, which is what is needed for the app, I believe. Iโ€™m going to try to update one of my iPads and try the shortcut though. Once again, amazing job!


#46

Wow amazing article FR. I donโ€™t have time to read it rn but itโ€™s is impressive just LOOKING at it!


#47

Thanks. It is almost as great as modifying on a PC only because on PC the only thing youโ€™d do is mess with things that donโ€™t do anything (or break your project), with the exception of changing game rules, but most people only care about stage size, objects, blocks


#48

Whatโ€™s a JSON file and how do you make one?


#49

You donโ€™t need to make one. Hopscotch stores its project in a format called JSON, which you can edit to change block, event, and game rule parameters, as well as just about anything else in the project. (This does NOT include the editor itself).

To use this shortcut, follow the instructions in post 1


@William04GamerA If you have an iPad on iOS 11 like I do, you can download an older version of the app called โ€œWorkflowโ€ and it works just fine

Mini FAQ or Concerns on Post 2


#51

So when I try to open the JSON file for a project in Shortcuts the app crashes, so will it still work?


#52

Yes, it does not save until you replace the file.

And it crashes when you try to load the project? Odd


#53

Yep it crashes, every time, right as I tap the file to open it.
Unless I should be going into the Hopscotch metadata file or something.


#54

That is very odd. Do you have a device restriction that could possibly disallow viewing files?

I should say it this way: Do you have access to the Files app normally?


#55

Yep, I have access to the files app.

Should I be going into the metadata file to choose a project instead of the json projects file?


#56

No, you should go to the json_projects folder and choose the most recent one (sort by date, first item) assuming that you have the target file as your first draft


#57

Oh hey it finally worked without crashing, thanks for helping!


#58

Did you not sort by date? I think you might have just tried to access a deleted draft otherwiseโ€ฆ


#59

I think I sorted by date before but Iโ€™m not sure.


#61

If it does use any of that, it would say that the shortcut uses that


#62

Ya Iโ€™ve seen that lolโ€ฆ BTW to share, you have you have to have a iCloud accountโ€ฆ Whenever I try to share it says Iโ€™m not logged inโ€ฆ
