Oh yeah I forgot about that bug

@Hopscotcher you could have always taken my open-source project

I can confirm it is pretty easy to pull off the trick. Like @MISSION_IMPOSSIBLEโ€™s setup, drag the conditional, then drop and tap the spot you want it in at the same time.

You should be able to get a hang of it pretty easily

@MISSION_IMPOSSIBLE have a 1UP :smile:

I wish this worked with โ€˜When Pressedโ€™. That would be so good.

Second glitch? I think I dragged the rule with the side effect down to a new rule or something like that

Wow. Ummโ€ฆ I didnโ€™t do that much.
Thanks tho.

Doesnโ€™t work for me.

How do you drop and tap at the same time? Seems to me those actions would have to be sequential.

It requires a little bit of precise timing.

  1. Have the conditional in the check if block
  2. Drag it off, then tap the original parameter slot with another finger, then keep tapping the new parameter slot until your conditional is over it and it is blue.
  3. Drop the conditional.

@MISSION_IMPOSSIBLE has a gif on post 20. Itโ€™s pretty easy once you get the hang of it

Todayโ€™s Tip: Bit Storage

Difficulty: 1.5/5
Best Practical Use Case: Storing all Settings into one Variable
(yeah oops too late for E-Pad but itโ€™s ok because I actually need those separated but that is part of my save code plan)

My setup: 8 clones

Concept: Each has a bit value, 0 or 1, an one short variable can express every state.

2 bits (one with a value of 1 & one with value 2) = 4 combinations = 0 (0+0), 1 (1+0), 2 (2+0), or 3 (2+1).

Weโ€™ll start with the concept as per usual. The images explain the whole thing today. Code is pretty short and sweet, but if you have any questions on explanations today please donโ€™t hesitate to ask




If you want to see how exactly it works, set the indicator text to this or a part of it:

Modulo is remainder of division, so it outputs the remainder when divide down by 2

Last pomtl tag because I know some of you could care less. So, I am starting a tag list for this.

Very interesting, thank you so much for sharing!

Hey this is how computers work. They think in binary, so they can compute in a way that is very simple and easy to do, then output to the human in decimal so they can understand it.

2 Likes

Yup, pretty much.

2 Likes

Mainly because the power of computers is speed not smarts. They can seem to have smarts, but that is because of the very low-level stuff is going super fast and allowing them to do more complicated problems.

3 Likes

Yup, that is why AI is a challenge, cuz computers are so โ€œtechnicalโ€ (not the word I was looking for)

(This can go back to the GDT)

So you created a binary system? Cool! I bet you could do some cool stuff with that.

2 Likes

Iโ€™ve seen this before but itโ€™s kinda cool. You can make any number from 1-127 with it tho, so anything else, and it wonโ€™t work.

However, why not just have one variable set to the result? What is the point in adding up all the smaller numbers when you could just have one variable, set to the total, with a single โ€˜Set (Var) to (46)โ€™ block instead of all that code which you had to make?
