Re: Sept 2015 Scratch release

Hi,
My friend found a funny bug.
I can drop blocks to the menu bar.
Image
dropEnabled of menuPanel of aScratchFrameMorph is true.
It should set false in ScratchFrameMorph>>createMenuPanel.
Thank you.

Re: Sept 2015 Scratch release

Hi, Tim Thank you for your great work. The NuScratch seems works fine. However Japanese translation files (ja.po and ja_HIRA.po) are degraded to very very old version. I maintain those files on the MIT's Scratch translation server. http://translate.scratch.mit.edu/ja/scratch1.4/ja.po http://translat...

Now we can play real sound of MIDI instruments!

For a very long time Squeak for Linux lacked MIDI support. We endured a long and hard struggle of oom-pah-pah. Finally Manabu Sugiura wrote a functional MIDIPlugin. Yay! https://github.com/gakuchan/MIDIPlugin And Hisashi Hoshino wrote an installer for Raspbian. It also install Timidity (software syn...

Re: What to set GPIO pin default states to in ScratchGPIO

Hi Simon, I have submitted all manuscripts to the publisher. The new article of ScratchGPIO is based on 4.1.09a, all input pins are pull down as default. And I added a footnote that explains how to change pull up or down pins by message. I'm grateful for your commitment to my book. Cheers, Kazuhiro ...

Re: Bugs and regressions

I'm sorry I forgot to write my environment and version.
I use Scratch20131203.image on 2013-12-20-wheezy-raspbian.
And I use Japanese locale (ja_JP.UTF-8).
I confirmed Scratch didn't freeze by Help when I chose English in Scratch.
It freezed with Japanese mode.
Thanks.

Re: What to set GPIO pin default states to in ScratchGPIO

Hi Simon, This means I decided to delay the publish of my book. The project files and circuits of 4.1.09a are incompatible with 4.0.09's. And 4.1.09a is more stable than 4.0.09. Those are reasons of my decision. As you wrote, making my own static copy is one solution. However your web site is the of...

Hi Simon,
How are things going?
If rollback is difficult, please put a link of the old version.

Version = '4.0.09' # 3Dec13

Thank you for your effort.

Re: Bugs and regressions

Scratch is always frozen when I choose 'Help page', 'Help screens' and 'Go To Scratch Website'. All of those menus send ScratchPlugin class>>primOpenURL:. Something might be wrong with primitiveOpenURL.
Thank you for your help.

I appreciate your kindness. I promise that I will ask you before writing a book next time. I re-install all environment by the instruction. The version number is "v4.1.09a # 11Jan13". (not changed) It seems pin22 is still pull-down. Could you please check it again? And dynamic appending of input pin...

Re: What to set GPIO pin default states to in ScratchGPIO

I wrote my book based on the following version. Version = '4.0.09' # 3Dec13 Especially pin 22 should be input and pull-up. I use this pin for the tact switch in my book. And pin 11, 12, 13 should be output. I use those pins for the DC motor driver (TP7291P). Also I referred your documentation. "As i...

Re: Bugs and regressions

Well-well. Take a look at the code in a non-developer 1.4 image for ScratchFrameMorph class>defaultSprite. It's a bit different; no loading of 'default.sprite' - it loads defaultSpriteCostume and defaultSpriteCostume2 explicitly to assemble a two-costume sprite rather than just a single costume. OK...

Hmm. The file is certainly there in 'Animals' on my Pi, so it looks like it didn't get deleted, at least. Are you saying that it should automatically appear as a costume for the default Sprite1 when File->new.. is chosen? Yes, default "sprite1" on all other platforms appears with two costumes when ...

Re: Bugs and regressions

"costume2" of default sprite (Scratch Cat) is missing.
It should be loaded as cat1-b in Animals when startup Scratch.
I checked with Scratch20130916.image.

I found a similar problem when I choose "save picture of script" menu of scripting area.
The saved GIF was almost transparent except black pixels.
It seems Form>>colorReduce8bit does not work correctly.
I'm not sure it is related with the bananas or not. Just FYI.
