difference between normal scratch and nuscratch:
- scratch as invented by MIT is currently in version 2 and running as a flash program inside a browser.
- the 'old', 'normal' scratch 1.4 is running on RPi and was included since the early releases of the Pi.
- nuscratch is a faster version of scratch 1.4, which has the additional 'gpioserver' to use GPIO and some other peripherals. It replaced scratch 1.4 on RPi.
nuscratch is functionally the same as scratch 1.4, it has the same features and some of the same bugs. All 1.4 programs can be exchanged between nuscratch, scratch 1.4 on linux, windows, mac.
"Mesh, in its rawest form, is simply remote sensor connections. As a matter of fact, any program that communicates through remote sensor connections can communicate through mesh with no modifications. Instead of enabling remote sensor connections, you would host mesh."
So try to use "remote sensor connections" with a vanilla raspian nuscratch instead. You can get rid of the '... is enabled...'-dialog by setting a parameter in .scratch.ini. See http://heppg.de/ikg/wordpress/?p=874
for these parameters.
Hope this helps,
