Also I've just tried to connect to AI companion and it says Failed to connect to ai2 etc... I have the latest version that updated yesterday to 2.37 !!!
I back tracked my work since last build complete by deleting 1 set of blocks at a time which were either a procedure or a when timer do and then I attempted a build each time. Once I got to a point where the build was complete I double checked the set of blocks I had just deleted previously to see if that was the issue but could find no problems so I did the whole process again and the build complete/error came down to that exact point again.
So I added a new set of blocks onto the point where the build was complete and the build failed!! I also added plenty more timers as I had originally deleted the timer components when deleting the when timer block to see if it was that I was using to many timers but this was not the case.
So only conclusion for me if that I seem to have reached a limit in block use, the overall size of the build right before build fail is 3.8 mb so it's not a fail because of that its a fail because of a number of blocks.
So do we know of a block limit?
A lot of blocks .... A hell of a lot.
and have trimmed down where I can
I'm sure it's possible to shrink my program more despite my attempts to but to be honest I think my project is too big for app inventor (possibly too big for me). Even if I shrink my program in half I'm still only about a third of the way into it and for a while now app inventor has been very very slow specially when scrolling the blocks screen, this is with all blocks collapsed. It become unusable.
I'm afraid I need to use other app building kit to continue with my project. I like app inventor, it's a great idea for building simple apps and very user friendly but it's no good for larger apps as its very limited.
Thanks again for the help
