Doesn't seem To Work

I've tested this many times, and scratch doesn't close, its just really slow.

Maybe it depends on your processor speed and RAM. What are those specs for you?

2.4 Ghz is my processor speed. Does it have to be faster or slower for scratch to close?

What is your RAM?

Have you changed settings in VM preferences? Because you can change it so Squeak holds more memory.

Just tested this on my mac, and it just brings up the spinning wheel (of death), and pretty much forces me to force quit to do anything. If I let it go on for a while it might close, but, as of the experiments I've run, it doesn't.

I can't be bothered to test this, but I was just wondering if anybody knew what happened when this script ran offline. I assume it is ignored? Might be useful to add that.

I think I read somewhere (I am not sure where) that this script forces scratch to close offline, but does nothing online (except slow the project down).

Scimonster wrote the original tutorial, maybe he knows.

I don't see how the script wouldn't work offline :/ Maybe the script has to be combined with an online/offline detector?

Doesn't work online.

@Jon: I don't get that. :/
It will work offline, but it doesn't do anything in the online player.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 09:08, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
Ohhh lol xD
But I still don't see how the script could check if it were being played online or offline :3

Ah nvm, just looked at the article again and saw that Scratchers are supposed to use hidden sprites — maybe hidden sprites don't work in the Flash Player?
Jonathanpb (talk | contribs) 05:31, 30 November 2011 (UTC)
I had it in a regular script. I think that Squeak crashes but Flash doesn't.

Ohhhh how did I not think of that o_O

Do we need this in the BYOB section? The reader will know they're viewing BYOB scripts. I thought the template was for places where Scratch scripts have be rewritten in BYOB for ease of reading (and I was the one who made this template). :/

Alright, fine.

If this is discouraged, then why is it shown how to be done?
Joletole (talk | contribs) 00:43, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

Who said this is discouraged? Also, even if it is discouraged, this article can help people avoid accidentally making Scratch close (by teaching them what causes it to happen), so it can still be useful.

According to this article, the ST said it.

I don't see how it could be bad really :/ It's not like Scratchers can hijack someone's project and insert the script :S

other ways

What about

when gf clicked
set [variable v] to [2]
 repeat (variable)
 set [variable v] to ((variable)*(variable))
  repeat (variable)
   set [variable v] to ((variable)*(variable))

That's what I use and it works perfectly fine. See here:

Yeah, i'm not sure when it became 10.
