Scratch commands to diagnose problems
I was doing some Scratch programming today with Marty and there were a number of times when the program failed to start/execute. It would often start a few green-flag-start clicks later or perhaps it was just a short time later. I had a continuous icmp ping running and that in general was ok with very occasional single packet loss. Marty was a few feet from the laptop hotspot I was using. I think communication was reasonable. It would be good if there was a way in Scratch to either show any (prior) errors and/or to allow a full test to run and report on that test.
I was using a specified ip as Marty's address was outside of the scan range. Does the auto-scan only happen once as the extension loads?
I think there might have been issues with robotical.github.io site roughly around 10:45am BST today. Am I right in thinking the uptime of this site/repository is a critical factor in the ability to launch a ScratchX session with the Marty extensions?
