This article is about the Events block. For the Looks block previously titled with the same name, see Switch Backdrop to () (block).

The Start Scene () block was an Event block and a Stack block. This block was functionally identical to the Switch Backdrop to () block (known at the time as the "Switch to Scene ()" block), but was available to sprites (whereas the other block was not). The block was removed after the Switch to Scene () block was renamed and made available to sprites in v172 of 2.0 alpha.


Due to the fact that the Switch to Scene () block worked identically to the Start Scene (), the block could simply be replaced with the other. However, at the time, the Switch to Scene () block was only available for the stage, so one would have had to have used a broadcast block:

On the sprite:

broadcast [switch to scene meadow v]

On the stage:

when I receive [switch to scene meadow v]
switch to scene [meadow v]:: looks
