Can you update this? There's a new syntax for custom C blocks, and predicates are now diamond shaped. And you can set blocks to any color.

Really? Let me test this:
test::custom cstart
end
Oh, yeah. It doesn't work.

Edit: Okay, I think I got it. Let me try again:
test{
}::custom

Hi! ::cstart and ::cend no longer work.

This is because the version was updated. The new syntax is:
for each [v v] in () {
say [HI EVERYBODY THIS IS AN ACTUAL HACKED BLOCK PEOPLE GET]
} ::control
which, after encolsing in [scratchblocks] tags you get:
for each [v v] in () {
say [HI EVERYBODY THIS IS AN ACTUAL HACKED BLOCK PEOPLE GET]
} ::control

So, it's been brought to my attention that there's a lot of Scratchblock spam/testing in here. That kind of leaves us with the option of either more aggressively moderating the topic or just cleaning it out and closing it. The former would be more work for us and we'd need the people in this thread to report stuff so we could know to remove it. Do people here think that there's enough discussion in the thread to make that worthwhile?

Well, with the change from scratchblocks2 to scratchblocks3, the OP needs to be updated. Once that happens, there really isn't much discussion around here, just spam, and people saying to others not to spam. Once the OP is updated, I think you should close it.

Perhaps you can just ask OP to update the syntax and then lock the topic?

Yeah it's not like the ST are gonna magically make another update so I guess updating now is best.

And if the OTP can't edit it someone else will make a guide

I think it's important to point out that you can see how your scratchblocks are going to come out here
http://scratchblocks.github.io/
That way your blocks won't come out looking strange on the forums…

TBH, I've only read the first nine pages of the book. I'm guessing 2 + 2 = 5 takes place somewhere in it and I was wrong to remove it

[/offtopic][topic]Buuut back on topic, you can also set the colour of the scratchblocks to whatever you want! I don't really want to share it here because it's probably the only aspect of scratchblocks that can still be kept a secret.

I like thinking I'm part of a secret society

It's been advertised by scratchblocks' creator, blob8108, so it can't be a secret.

Hey!

The scratchblocks plugin has been updated since this topic was started, so I'll give you a few updates:

First, cstart, celse and cend seem not to have any effect anymore. Take a look:
[scratchblocks]
test cstart :: cstart
...
test celse :: celse
...
test cend :: cend
[/scratchblocks]
makes
test cstart :: cstart
...
test celse :: celse
...
test cend :: cend
.
The only way to make your own C blocks now is to use curly braces {}, like this:
[scratchblocks]
test cstart {
...
} test celse {
...
} test cend
[/scratchblocks]
test cstart {
...
} test celse {
...
} test cend
which (to me, since I've worked with JavaScript) makes a lot more sense.

Second, directly because of this, curly braces {} don't work as block inputs anymore, see:
[scratchblocks]
here is a block with what used to be a block input {block}
[/scratchblocks]
here is a block with what used to be a block input {block}
so instead. you can actually use parentheses () and inside them specify that the input is a block!
[scratchblocks]
here is a block with what is now a block input (block :: stack) :: control // 'cause I want to differentiate the colors
[/scratchblocks]
here is a block with what is now a block input (block :: stack) :: control // 'cause I want to differentiate the colors

Third, to control the type of a “if – else – finally” block, you just put the :: at the end, like this:
[scratchblocks]
test cstart {
...
} test celse {
...
} test cend :: control
[/scratchblocks]
test cstart {
...
} test celse {
...
} test cend :: control

Finally, here is a rewrite of @theonlygusti 's code, the way I think he meant it to be:
[scratchblocks]
when gf clicked :: operators hat
wait until (this block :: looks stack) turns purple {
say hi! :: sound stack
} and then {
use the colors {
to make life :: motion stack
} :: custom-arg
} finally :: extension
stop :: grey cap
[/scratchblocks]
when gf clicked :: operators hat
wait until (this block :: looks stack) turns purple {
say hi! :: sound stack
} and then {
use the colors {
to make life :: motion stack
} :: custom-arg
} finally :: extension
stop :: grey cap
@theonlygusti , I respect you for being the only one I've found that actually deliberately explained all the scratchblocks techniques. Here is an update for everyone who reads this topic!

Also, don't forget about special symbols
When I have @greenFlag :: hat control
spin @turnRight @turnLeft :: motion
run [/nothing/] without inputs but with arrows @delInput @addInput :: control
[scratchblocks]
