Alice 2.0 vs. Alice 2.2
 
From the names of the software I can gather that Alice 2.2 is supposed to be better than Alice 2.0.
However I don't know what makes it better, so I use Alice 2.0 because Alice 2.2 worlds don't seem to work in Alice 2.0.

So can anyone give a convincing reason to switch to 2.2?

Better sound support, better menu, walking people library built into it, and seems to succeed when 2.0 fails (though the same holds true for 2.0 when 2.2 fails).

[B]Doesn't affect me that much, Alice 2.0 seems to work all right for it[/B]

-Works for some, not for others. For me, the first time a world with a sound runs, an error appears. After restarting the world, though, it works perfectly

[B]How so? [/B]

-The Alice 2.0 menu is very primitive and doesn't offer much of the features modern menus offer. 2.2 fixes this.

[B]Worth a try[/B]

-The walking people library can also be copied into Alice 2.0 if you prefer. DrJim did that.

[B]Well if Alice 2.2 fails, I can't go to Alice 2.0 with the same world and make it not fail[/B]

Why not? Save it, close 2.2, and open the a2w file in 2.0.

[U]Well Alice2.0 still works fine for what I need. And when it does break, I at least get a nice laugh or two out of it (have you ever listened to Never Gonna Give You Up at 1/2 normal speed and pitch?[/U]

[B]How so? [/B]

[U]Like what?[/U]

[U]Good idea.[/U]

[U]Some worlds programmed in 2.2 won't play in 2.0.[/U][/QUOTE]

Alice 2.0 is designed for high school and college students. Storytelling Alice is designed for middle-school students. Storytelling Alice was created by Caitlin Kelleher as part of her doctoral work in Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University

...this has nothing to do with Storytelling Alice...
