What it Does
By clicking on "Start Single Stepping" it starts the process with the current option. By default it is "Flash Blocks (Slow)". These are all the possible options in can be set it to:
In the Flash Player turbo speed is instead named "Turbo Mode", which is accessed by shift-clicking the Green Flag. This is much faster than the Squeak (offline) turbo speed, making projects up to 50 times faster. Turbo speed between the online and offline editors differs greatly.
Just runs all the scripts as they would normally be; it's just like having Single Stepping turned off.
Flash Blocks (fast)
Runs a project at normal speed, however, when a block is active, it turns yellow. This is useful for debugging.
Flash Blocks (slow)
Runs a project extremely slowly, and turns blocks yellow when they are active.
This can be useful for:
- Speeding up mathematical projects
- Finding the source of a glitch
- Finding out exactly how a project works
- Humor and amusement
- Main article: Detecting Turbo Mode
There are simple scripts that can be made that detect if Turbo Speed or Single Stepping is on.
