We added the blocks to a new player version – so you might need to update to the latest player if it’s an older project, or try it on a new project. (If you do decide to update an older project, make a copy first)
Also for a note with Set Trail Opacity – in Hopscotch the lines overlap slightly while drawing, with the Round and Square Trail Caps. You will need to use Butt if you don’t want any overlap.
it’s working now, it was just a glitch. thank you!
I just edited some pictures in the post for others, if they come across it too.
@t1_hopscotch there’s seem to be a inconsistency with the show pop-up window between versions 2.2.0 and 1.5.26. In player 1.5.26, the text is large and easy to read (and looks like it was actually made for Hopscotch). In player 2.2.0, it shows up like an Apple style alert.
I also did notice the text limit in pop-ups is 9999 characters, which is 10x more than what the prompt for save input can hold…
I had a realization that I may be a bit too old for hopscotch when I was thinking one day about how I could use hopscotch. To calculate taxes.
I’m trying to update my project to be compatible with player 1.5.26 (without issues), but it seems the Join Text Operator is slightly too slow to keep up with everything going on. And there’s a lot going on.
When I saw 00s000192s, when I made a debug, I knew it couldn’t be a problem with my code, since I’m 100% sure I fixed all of the concatenations, plus, it worked fine when playing my custom level again…
That was a popup style that we were experimenting with. We ended up changing it back for 2.2.0, because it wasn’t optimised on iPhone, but forgot to change it for the older ones.
I’ll change it back for the older ones as well for now. If we get a chance to tweak it, we’ll add it back again. Glad you like how the popup style looks though.
Yeah, I did notice there was no forced text wrap when the string was all one word. It occurred on iPads as well.
Just came here to say that I love the new way to comment. It’s generations better than the previous method.
Hey welcome back, also I just wanted to thank you for convincing me to do the seed dev program a couple years ago.
been a while, hey!! good to see you again
hey @Yusamac205, your restaurant game was a big inspiration for my food empire game! your an awesome coder!
yo, hi! welcome back! nice to meet you!
Hey, hows it been!
Its been some time
Miss ya, thanks for the fun memories from back during the HA Academy and helping me get started on the forum
I’m probably gonna continue using the + block for joining string because
- muscle memory
- shorter in length
- next to the numpad
- joining string this way is never gonna be removed :P
Legend has it @/Petrichor still is on the daring question to join the esteemed, respected, and all might, @omtl2! For thy has gone over the mortal villages of our realm. And thy has searched for an answer from thy powerful people. People such as Ana and the almighty -1. But we may never know what thy has been told. For thy has seen the light, may we, mortals, see the great power of @omtl2! So wonderfully clothed in shades of grey. Us mortals may never see this wonderful tag! For we are mere mortals compared to fish!
TBH, when the update came out, I thought the additions operator was changed so any invalid input like “x” or “apple” would force them to be changed to 0’s… or maybe they forgot to
There is one other thing that makes + better than join: it’s a little bit faster than join
I doubt they would ever change addition to not join strings together, because too many projects use addition for joining
also because JS shenanigans
True, but they made it so you have to update the player version from 2.1.4, as there was a big change that could break your project…
Also, double plus sign alert.
@t1_hopscotch you said you changed the pop-up window in 1.5.26 to be the same (as in the Apple style pop-up) as 2.2.0, right? Well…
It still hasn’t changed on my end, lol…
I just noticed Show Pop-up is similar to JS alert().
Would be cool if we also had a block similar to JS confirm(), which would be useful for confirming actions such as “Are you sure you want to buy this item?” without needing to type in “yes” or “y”
