All at Once

Category Control
Type C
Introduced in v137 (2.0 alpha)
Removed in v152 (2.0 alpha)

The all at once block was a C block and a Control block. The block ran the blocks inside it atomically. It was based on the Warp block in Snap!,[citation needed] and was originally called Warp Speed in Scratch as well. The block was planned to serve as a temporary turbo mode for designated scripts;[citation needed] using turbo mode, where the whole project was run faster, can cause timing issues, and it is often only needed for a couple of scripts.

The block was removed later in a later alpha version of Scratch 2.0; in the official release, custom blocks instead have an option entitled "run without screen refresh", which runs the script faster.

Some common uses for the all at once block are:

  • Speeding up mathematical projects
  • Rendering 3D
  • Doing complicated calculations
  • Removing the lag in ordinary loop blocks such as Repeat ()
