This improvement to Algobox is something that many of you have been waiting for! You now have more power to select the type of scenes that you will see in your search results and in the Highlighted Scenes. Here's how it works:

If you access Algobox through a standard Internet browser, such as Internet Explorer or Chrome, then at the top of the main page, you will see a link labeled "Settings". When you click on that link, you will be taken to the Settings page.

If you access Algobox through Algodoo (the program in your computer that you launch in order to download and upload scenes) then you must click on the Algobox icon at the left side of the screen, and then click on "My Scenes". You will then see the "Settings" link on the left side of the page. When you click on that link, you will be taken to the Settings page.

The Settings page allows you to select and adjust a few personal properties such as your Time Zone, Language, and the ability to change your password. There is also a list of "Groups" that gives you the ability to hide one or more groups of scenes that you have no interest in seeing. For example, you would select (highlight) the group labeled "Bug reports" if you do not want to have scenes in that group display along with all of the other displayed scenes. On the other hand, if Bug Reports scenes are the only scenes that you are interested in, then you can highlight every group in the list EXCEPT for Bug Reports, and then those are the only scenes you will see!

We have created two new groups after receiving suggestions from many users. One is called "Marble & Athlons & BFDI & Camps", and the other is called "Technical". The "Marble..." group is mostly for the younger users who enjoy posting and downloading those type of scenes, and the "Technical" group is mostly for the advanced users who enjoy posting and downloading complex scenes and/or scenes that were made using Thyme script programming.

Remember - when you select (highlight) one or more groups and then click on the "Confirm" button, scenes that are in those groups will NOT be displayed. If you are interested in a particular type of group (Technical, for example) then make sure to place the scenes that you upload in that particular group. You cannot select a group if you upload your scenes from Algodoo. You can only select a group if you upload your scenes through a standard Internet browser.

If you have any questions about this, please contact me by writing a comment on this scene description page, and I will usually reply to it within a few hours.

Thanks,

Xray (Algodoo Admin)

:D
This is great! Only 1 question.
Question: Why do you have to upload a scene on a normal internet browser to change groups?
I think the answer is that it requires rewriting Algodoo's code so they have group options. Now, to put that in perspective, when is the last time Algodoo was updated?:/
P.S. This scene knocked the "Cog Walker" scene.;)

That's a good news! :tup:
But I doubt that the kids will have the time to use that group selection, but I hope they weren't lazy enough )|(
If you see the suggestion scene several years before, you can see Emanuel thought of filtering the scenes via words used in the scene. Let's hope he's right.
I agree with Anbang11, We should filter the scene via the words used in the scene

Thanks Xray, that update is cool enough to make Algobox a better place.
Continuing my comment, this update can help me find recent Marble Races, in the other side, non-marble racer will hide Marble Race, Algothons, or Camp or related to that.
So this means the 2 sides finally comes to a peace (Sort of)
OMG XRAY I DON'T HATE U ANYMORE :3
i agree, BlueMario57. but Unfortunately, every time i tried to press save and share button once i made a scene, IT WON'T WORK!
I think this is a new thing to introduce, Xray! Nice job!
Well, i marked BFDI and the Marble stuff, but 90% of them are still showing. The users uploading these scenes do not care or know about this.
Thanks for your comments, everyone! It's going to take some time before this new feature is working smoothly, but I believe that most people will ultimately be happy with the changes. And like most everything else in life, it's not "perfect" and so the occasional unwanted scenes will slip through. If everyone will use it like intended, then it should work very well.

tylorfoot6 -- Anbang11 is correct. Because of the way Algodoo was written, it does not provide a way to select a group when uploading your scenes through Algodoo. Therefore, you must use a standard Internet browser if you want to select a group for your scene. And Algodoo will probably never be changed or improved because the person who invented it no longer works at Algoryx (the company that owns and maintains Algodoo and Algobox). The current changes were made to Algobox (this website), and there are people (such as Emaunel) who can make changes to the website).
For anyone who uses Algodoo for uploading your scenes, you can contact me if you want to select a particular group for your scenes. Once a scene has been uploaded, I can change the group name by editing the scene. So, for example, if your scene originally went into the "default" group when you uploaded it, I could easily change it to the "Marble...." group if you so desire.
X-ray your amazing as usual but i have a question how do i group my scenes i still haven't figured out how
happykyle1119 -- Read the message in this scene. It explains all you need to know.

Thanks
:s how did this get so many ratings, favorites and downloads? XD
ok Scenes are Algodoo less things estatuals
For those of you wondering how this scene got so many high ratings and huge number of downloads, well, I simply waved my magic wand and made it happen! We Admins have incredible amounts of POWER that was spiritually infused into us by the god of Algoland during our initiation ritual. We swore an oath not to abuse this power because we can easily dominate the entire world if we wanted to. Aren't you glad that we Admins are the GOOD GUYS? :angel:

Believe me, if you weren't, then Algodoo would have never been made!:o
Yup, you got dat right! :lol:
bots!
bats!
bits!
Haha well I saw that a month ago and it doesn't seem to make it any better yet. i definitely hope some kind of change that will allow MRs to disappear from my sight, but that won't be anytime soon.

The community here is ruined anyways. almost everyone that made nice scenes and was involved here have already moved on, and just a handful of people from the old times remain (Phun times i mean, not me)...

The forum also seems dead. I asked about the popular page being jammed but there was no response even from mods, let alone Algoryx

Do you know something about that? why are there such old scenes displayed in the popular page?

1.
I've got to admit, I also want them to gone :s

2.
I also agree, many good people are leaving. Soiled by pointless static camp scenes and other more childish crap. For those of you who are reading this and used to post BFDI camps/BFDI fans. I'm terribly sorry, but I have to let go of my pressure

Congratz! (3
P.S. How Do You Make The Funny Angel Emoji?It's OP!:P
Golden Freddy - I deleted one of your comments because I do not allow profanity or crude, sexual words on this website (you should know that!).

Concerning the Emoji faces, they show up when you use a standard Internet browser. They will not show up if you use Algodoo as your browser. Simple as that!
