Re: Problem: polygon points moving/scaling 2x/4x ?

I do not know if this helps but keep your code in the”lock/unlock” part short and do not issue any other messages/events in it. As an example look at the code in part “C - Oops, It goes too slow” here: https://sites.google.com/a/pgcps.org/livecode/flappy-bird-3 The problem you are having seems like ...

Re: Vocabulary Learning Game

You could make your own with LiveCode - action games, matching games, timed games, and others. You could give them the LiveCode source and let them customize them with their own graphics, motions and even questions/answers. For ideas, examples and more, go to https://learntolivecode.com/teacher.html...

Re: Learn Assembler in Ubuntu

I learned and programmed in assembly language when I first started. It really takes programming to its basics. In fact any other language that you may write in is ultimately compiled Into machine language/assembly language. (Assembly language is basically machine language with human readable tags) L...

Re: Weather

That is great. You are making progress! There are at least 2 ways that you can pull off the temperature part of that item. 1. Treat it as another list but instead of the items being separated with commas (,), it uses colons (:). So you change the item-delimiter from a comma to a colon and pull off t...

Re: Weather

If you just want the temperature, you can use an api to get that data from the weather site. Then you can format and show it in text or use your own graphics. It gives you more control and allows you to customize your screen. You can also get other related data, like the wind speed, the sky conditio...

You have nothing to apologize for. I was not offended. I was trying to simplify the process and explain to the forum why I piggybacked on your email. Using sitesucker, I downloaded the entire site and if it ever goes down, I may try to replace it. It was done using Google Sites and has a lot of thei...

Re: Scrolling Backgrounds

Great idea. You are correct. Having benchmarks would be really useful. Students often have older/slower computers and cellphones. So we worry about size and speed of games. We always used the 6x over the 7x and 8x versions of LiveCode for games because they were faster, less buggy and made smaller s...

Re: Session Suggestions for LiveCode Global

I did, briefly but I am not good on video. Besides, I am not a great fan of videos myself. Too much pausing, backing up and replaying. Videos either go too fast or too slow. I prefer working from screens. I find it easier to follow along.

Do you use videos a lot?

Re: Session Suggestions for LiveCode Global

I did not subscribe to the Global presentations this year because too many of the presentations were over my head orof no use to me. They seemed to be aimed more at advanced developers/professionals rather than beginners or hobby developers. What I would have liked was short simple ones to introduce...
