I've translated the Scratch "Getting Started" into Arabic, and preparing other materials now. I've used the guide as it is without changing the graphics -- only translated the English content; so is it OK to add the logo of the event or the organization under which this work is done, beside the logo of the LLK group?
adlogi: wow, that's great! It would be great if you could share your translation with the rest of the community! Could you post a link to it or could you send it to scratch-feedbkack-at-media.mit.edu ?
Oh and yes, you can add the logo to your document.
wow, theres alot of moderators about!lets keep it going<forever>
Is anyone using this in their school with classes? If so, do you have any curriculum or projects to suggest? My audience is third grade.
I'm a freshman in high school and my computer class did scratch for game programming and I had no idea scratch existed until now. My teacher just told us to try things and experiment with them. Thats how I learned.
I have been thinking about using an after-school activity to raise funds for my daughter's school. So, I thought I will teach programming to kids for a fee. It could be once a week class for 6 wks or a club - where they'll be paying for 'membership' . Either way, ALL the money collected will go to the school. Can I use scratch for this purpose?
Scratch can be used at private schools and summer camps that make money. I say that the main restriction would be to let people know that they can get Scratch for free from the MIT web site, so that they don't feel they have been tricked into paying for free software. You should be selling the experience of the camp, not the software.
(Note: I have no official affiliation with the Scratch Team, so don't take this as legal permission to do anything—it is just my interpretation of the situation.)
you fill in that part, meaning if u want to know if you can do anyhting you fill it in example) Do i have permission to download other peoples projects and revise them. (the answer is yes)
kevin is correct. You can charge for a Scratch class. Just tell people they can download Scratch for free. You can also print the materials and charge for printing them.
Hey guys. Just love Scratch. I've been a constructionist using MicroWorlds for decades but I feel that they have lost their way a little with recent versions - too many "one button push and it all happens" events. Scratch is ideal for primary kids.
My question is: can you put a project into presentationmode under script control or do you have to click the button?
You can launch a project directly in presentation mode using the command line parameter "presentation". A valid command line for Windows would be:
fullpath\scratch.exe scratch.image presentation yourproject.sb
You can use this mechanism in your Shell scripts/batchfiles.
You might also want to check this thread on how to configure Windows/MacOS to let you launch Scratch projects in presentation mode directly from the shell without any scripts:
If you want to just run Scratch projects without having to switch back to presentation mode you might want to have a look at Chirp (which also lets you use Scratch projects as Windows screensavers):
Please let me know it that answers your question...
if its on the website and you have java then yes.
just go to the projects page and wait for it to load
Am I allowed to program a Star Wars themed application with the block idea?
That means, I am making an app with VB.NET with Star Wars characters controlled by blocks like yours. Is that allowed?
Yes, you're allowed Rukqo. It sounds like a really cool idea! I'd love to see what you do!
Scratch certainly allows a Star Wars themed project. The owners of the Star Wars characters may have a different opinion, though they are unlikely to go after a non-commercial project.
If you're using a PC, you right-click on the logo and then save as an image file somewhere on your PC (I use the desktop, since it's easy to find), then go into Scratch and import it as a sprite costume or a background.
I want to add a great new block "The Gluer" It'll allow you to attach other sprites on a diffrent sprites body part. Like a 'Advance "Go To"' block. once you use this block and select the sprite It'll bring up the Paint menu with that selected sprite and the 'Gluing' sprite will be next to it. You do the pant procedure and once you click OK your sprite will 'Go To' that sprite but at a Specific spot. Like if you wanted a Knight with a sword you wouldn't want it to be at his chest. Here's a Example
When *Flag Sign" click
Advance Go To Knight (but on his back)|
Go back 4 Layers
When I Recive "Attack!"
Advance Go To Knight (In Knights hand)
Wait 2 secs
Advance Go To Knight (Back on his back
Now that would be easyer and more real looking
