|All at Once|
|Introduced in||2.0 alpha|
|Removed in||2.0 alpha|
The All at Once block was a Control block and a C block that was introduced in the Scratch 2.0 alpha. It ran the blocks inside it atomically. It is based on the Warp block in Snap!, and was originally called Warp Speed in Scratch as well. This block was planned to serve as a temporary Turbo Mode for designated scripts; using Turbo Mode, where the whole project gets ran faster, can cause timing issues, and it is often only needed for a couple of scripts.
This block was removed later from the palette in the alpha version of Scratch 2.0; in the official release, custom blocks instead have a checkbox called "run without screen refresh", which runs the script faster. However, using this feature with a wait block may result in misbehaving code.
Because custom blocks now have the "run without screen refresh" option, this block can be recreated through a simple workaround:
define all at once . . .
Then, use the custom block to run the script underneath the define "all at once" hat block above:
when gf clicked all at once:: custom
How to bring it back
This block can be found here : all at once in the "control" sprite
This block can be used in some of the following ways:
- Speeding up mathematical projects
- Rendering 3D
- Doing complicated calculations
- Removing the lag in ordinary loop blocks such as Repeat ()
