Ah, that preference is more specific. Even better :)

>>> Couldn't figure out broadcasting from Scratch to Etoys.  In Scratch I broadcast "go".  In Etoys I tried a script named "go" and one named "broadcastgo" but nothing happened in Etoys. One of your short simple videos would help ;)
>> I guess Koji-san meant to use a custom event to trigger the script on the ScratchClient. The script name is irrelevant. If you disable "etoys friendly" you find "define a new custom event" in the "more..." submenu for the script trigger. That lets you define other triggers than "mouseDown", "mouseUp" etc. IIUC you need to name it "broadcast:go".
