[etoys-dev] Fwd: using ScratchConnect in the next Etoys release

Hi, Richo,

So maybe we should now go on ahead and push the ScratchConnect code to the repository, in time for the second beta.

As you wrote earlier, Koji-san's implementation makes unconventional use of a custom subclass of Player as a root for its uniclasses, whereas the usual practice is for uniclasses to sprout directly from Player.  This is no great problem, I suppose, but at the same time I think we might as well continue to follow our established conventions.

So I attach a fileout which is basically the same as Koji-san's ScratchConnect, except that it uses vanilla Players, not ScratchPlayers, and the Player code that he had put into ScratchPlayer has been moved to Player.  Otherwise no change…

Since you're the engineer who has looked into this, it would probably be best if you check this out, and if you approve, do the publishing, if you have time :)

Thank you!

  - Scott
