Think relative CPU processor speed and then it looks like that is the correct ratio.After the update it is about 2.5 seconds, so a big improvement.
The PC version takes about 1 second, so we're not running full speed, but closer.
Thanks for that! To clarify, we've released Scratch under the GPL v2. So it's totally fine to modify the code, as long as you remove our trademarks. We just don't want people getting confused about what is and is not an "official" version of Scratch, with the official feature set.simplesi wrote: Please don't pass it on as the nice people at MIT don't like modded Scratch's on the loose so this is just for testing at the moment
My original tests were with the un-updated distribution. With each apt-get update/apt-get upgrade the situation seems to have improved. It also seems that certain constructs or features cause 100% CPU usage. There is no doubt a large subset of Scratch features that work fine, but kids progressing that fast will probably soon encounter those that don't, ant that may be when the loose interest.jbeale wrote: At any rate that is 'viable' and suited for intended purpose, from my point of view.
Well, I've just updated to the 2012-08-16 distribution and done a full update and I don't see any improvement yet.With each apt-get update/apt-get upgrade the situation seems to have improved
May have been my imagination. I just did an apt-get dist-upgrade, which certainly installed a scratch replacement and it seems almost as bad as it was originally. Additionally it stopped the WiFi from working again and I really cannot be bothered to go through all that again at the moment!simplesi wrote:Well, I've just updated to the 2012-08-16 distribution and done a full update and I don't see any improvement yet.
Hello,simplesi wrote: Like I say, if anyone wants my modified version please feel free to PM me for it
We're working with the Scratch folks on this. We'll update the thread when there's more to report.simplesi wrote:@johnm and @lightin
I was wondering if there has been any progress on an updated Scratch image for the RaspberryPI please?
