Scripts are moving around

What's the problem you are encountering?
when i load my project, scripts that are in one sprite have been moved to
a new sprite that i didn't make
What have you tried that didn't work?
nothing. i think it's a problem with the XML but i know nothing about that
Post a project example, link, or screenshot:
the scripts keep moving from the sprite called "files" to a new
sprite called "Sprite" (not the purple one)

[edit: why do my posts take so long to be “approved”?]

I am sorry if I have been a nuisance. I guess being new to the forums I
Have been a bit impatient.

I'm sorry you're encountering issues. I've been trying to reproduce them in your project, but I cannot reproduce the problem of any script moving from the "files" sprite to the "Sprite" sprite. The "Sprite" sprite's scripting area is empty and alway stays empty, regardless whether I edit any other sprite and then save and reload the project. Is there any particular editing action, any specific block that you add to one sprite that then shows up on another one?


3 sprites with the same name: normally, snap is refusing to do that...
Normally snap auto-rename the sprite to sprite(2) if a sprite with the same name already exist...

Try to rename manually your sprites and try again.

I'm so confused, is this a different issue? You say "normally Snap is refusing to do that", how do you make same-named sprites without using some unsupported plug-in?

[edit: Aha! I see, that project has several same-named sprites]

So, @starbox614 How did you end up with those same-named sprites?

Bump @jens

I made one sprite called “sprite” on purpose, and the others appeared by themselves

I don’t have to have moderator approval to post anymore

Also, one of the green (now white) “sprite” sprites has the same
Scripts as the “files” sprite, but I never put them there

I recently opened the project and the weird sprites were gone…

spelling mistake

oops i said wired sprites

2 sprites must not have the same name

The same name sprites were not named by me.
They appeared by themselves

just rename it

Wait now one is back?

Once you post your first post ever, then the mods will approve it. It happens only ONCE, and then you can post as many topics as you want.

By saying this I don't want you or anyone to go and spam rickroll topics, bumping the community's topics down and down, and get MANY views for the spam topics. By saying this, I mean that once you can post as many topics as you want, you can have the freedom to show off your projects, pose questions, and help/get help from the community.

Actually, until you level up you can post as many as you want.

i can verify that bc of my friend @kandois cant post

If they can't post at all, then they are at the bot/spammer filter level.

Many of my posts had to be approved before I could post without approval.
(10 posts or so?)

(Also we should get back on-topic)

Does anyone have experience with sprites duplicating themselves?
That’s kind of what’s happening here.
