Insanity 1.2

Insanity 1.2 was released a while ago, but I am now creating the Scratch 2.0 thread. However, development has been discontinued due to the release of Scratch 2.0.

The site is insanity.jvvgindustries.com.

Insanity 1.2

Official announcement: Insanity 1.3 will have cloud lists.

They will not be quite as fancy as real lists, but will still be nice. The blocks will be similar to the cloud variable ones. Instead of a dropdown, it will just be a text field. However, unlike cloud variables, you will have to declare the list before accessing it or the program will show a dialog box explaining the error.

Because Scratch 2.0 has been released and I'm still using the 1.4 source code, and because Scratch 2.0 has a bunch of new features that I will not be able to replicate, I am officially discontinuing development of Insanity.

If anybody wants to leave where I left off, the latest source code is available in the Git repository and the developer password is “nebula”.

I'm confused, does the current build have the cloud lists, or are you abandoning it before you put them in?

Pondering what to work on.

I abandoned it before implementing them.

do you plan on re-building insanity with the 2.0 flash source code?
or the html code when it comes out?

I don't know any Flash at all and don't have $700 to buy the editor, so I don't think I will be able to do that.

This is due to the release of Scratch 2.0 - my mod is now missing many features that Scratch has, and Scratch 2.0 has a lot of the features I had.

I am currently updating the website to reflect these changes, with instructions on how to continue development if anybody does.

scratch 2.0 is awesome, but insanity has many features scratch 2.0 doesn't, for example: the split block (splitting a string into a list), reading from files (even the internet!), pop-up windows, importing projects, changing the cursor, turning on/off turbo mode, IP adress, when <> is true hat block. Dictionary's, if then else reporter blocks and i pretty much listed them all (yes there is stop all and press green flag, also while block). It has so many things that scratch 2.0 doesn't.

Well, it is still available for download if you want to use it. I just am not adding any more features. I may fix a few bugs, but that's all.

Hmmm… I wouldn't discontinue Insanity - a lot of mods are still being created in 1.4, even with 2.0's release. Besides, Scratch's limitations of “being user-friendly to New Scratchers” really limits its potential. And 1.4 seems to be a more stable platform, as 2.0 is still very glitchy.

What I would suggest doing is trying to find another Scratcher that has Flash and, while saving up to get the Flash editor, have them port over the features. Then, you can continue to add more!

As well, the ST is (I think) working on an HTML5 version to be released. However, I don't think that will be coming in a long while. Once it is released, though, you can continue it for free!

Please take these ideas into consideration!

Moving on from Scratch, to much bigger things. It's gonna be one fun adventure.

This is kind of a necropost, but I will publish one last new build of Insanity relatively soon. It will just change the URL of cloud variables, as modshare.org will no longer work come the end of October, being replaced by modshare.futuresight.org

What are dictionaries (n00b question), but what are they used for?

There are 10 types of people in this world. People who know binary code, and people who don't.

Insanity 1.2

In my opinion, Smalltalk is a much, much more productive and intuitive development environment. JavaScript is a good language but it takes 3x longer to accomplish the same things as Smalltalk.

I'm interested in the latest and most feature rich, stable Scratch that's based on Smalltalk. I'd like to extend it to suit some of my own goals and vision.

Is Insanity, BYOB or some other Scratch extension the best to use? Any guidance would be appreciated. I have several years of Smalltalk experience but am new to Scratch. Thanks.
