Current blocks:

Hopefully, they are self-explanatory.

Word Extension looks like a block menu extension

Can you post the link to it here? Do you mean the text sprite extension???

Create text sprite you mean.

& How would player 1 controls the player with camera following & player 2 camera following.

Multiplayer cameras do that

Ah, I wouldn’t use that extension. I would use the text sprite extension instead which is “verified” and can do the same things and more. You can change the text as much as you want and there can be outlines, etc.

You can’t do that in Arcade AFAIK :frowning:

Then who uses this extension

TBH, I don’t even know who made it and when. :thinking:

Why do you want to use it?

Because I was making Legends Of The Hidden Temple In Arcade Makecode

Do you have any reason to favor the word extension over the text extension? :thinking:
