Sprite relocates when Presentation Mode is activated

In my game, I have a ‘Foreground’ sprite for scenery that moves when the project is put into Presentation Mode (aka full screen). The sprite moves about +30 in the X direction when the view is switched from the standard, smaller player window to Presentation Mode. Switching back to the smaller player window does NOT reverse the relocation, and the sprite stays at the new coordinates. Refreshing the browser page resets the sprite to the original location.

The ‘Foreground’ sprite is larger than the Stage, so I'm guessing this might be causing the issue, but I couldn't find anything to fix it on the Wiki…

project: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/197684115/

Thanks!

Thanks, @asivi

Maybe it's a Chrome OS thing. In any case, I'll hop over to the other forum

Sprite relocates when Presentation Mode is activated

Hi, there are lot of topics in bugs and glitches involving Chromebooks, in all or most of those cases are looking like such devices are poor in terms of power of computation becoming laggy or glitchy with Flash.

Sprite relocates when Presentation Mode is activated

In case anyone on ST is looking into this, here are the steps to reproduce:

1) My browser / operating system: ChromeOS 10176.65.0, Chrome 64.0.3282.134, Flash 28.0 (release 0)
2) Project url: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/197684115/
3) Note position of the ‘Foreground’ sprite (graphic for the cliff)
4) Switch to Presentation Mode, note change in X position of ‘Foreground’ sprite
5) Switch back to small player from Presentation Mode, X position of ‘Foreground’ sprite is still shifted from original value

Thanks!

'Foreground' sprite keeps its new shifted position even if Presentation Mode is exited:

Hi, try removing any block for effects others than ghost and brightness.

set [color v] effect to (0)// remove it completely from the project

Sprite relocates when Presentation Mode is activated

@asivi, I looked into that, since it's the closest thing on the ‘known bug list’ to what I'm experiencing. However, the sprite in question has zero scripts on it, so unless there are effects being applied in the paint editor or the stage, then I'm not sure how to try this solution…

That said, on closer inspection, I can see that the issue isn't a +X relocation, but a +X scale increase…

You have such block in your ballon sprite, remove it, not disconnecting the block out the script only but getting rid of it from the project. No matters where is the effect, it will switch on a graphics accelerator mode that not all graphic cards can support. You investigate Stage3D in the wiki or go to @TheLogFather profile, he has some projects showing different behaviors related with.
