Tiny Arcade & Pocket Arcade / Re: TinyArcade not working at all
« on: October 04, 2016, 09:01:51 AM »
I'm also having no luck- managed to update the menu, but then when I tried to load on the BasicExample, the screen went black & now it is totally unresponsive.

It isn't detected as a port (so I can't select the correct port in Arduino). I've tried holding down the buttons when switching on- but that doesn't do anything.

Do I have to take the whole thing apart to be able to access a reset button? Not sure I want to do this unless a last resort, as it's all nicely glued together...

I've added some (integer) sprite scaling, and some trees. All the code is in my github!

I'm going back to my TinyOutrun game for TinyScreen. I've made a bit of progress - and now I've got "screenshot" saving to SD card - so I can make animated gifs to upload, to more easily show my progress!

I've added some hills & clouds, animated GIF attached!

It's on Github, here:

This is great - can't wait to see how it turns out!

Yeah - I've been going down the scanline render route exclusively.. I think as long as your scanline renderer is optimised - it seems to be the best bet. I've got tiles & sprites working with this (sprites layered on top of the tiles) - I've also got it working with my Outrun style game.

I'm going to add optional SD card writing in to my renderer, so I can occasionally save "screenshots" to the SD card - could even save multiple screenshots to make little animated gifs for uploading/showing.

I thought about palette based sprite storage, too - perhaps using a palette of 16 colours per sprite/tile (4-bits per pixel)..but I might come to that later, if I feel I'm going to run out of program memory.

Really cool to see some other projects coming together! I'll post my progress after the weekend :)

That's really cool! Is it compatible with the Tiny Steering Wheel board? ;)

Thanks :D I'll keep working on it later in the week.
Haha, it'd be great to play it with a wheel! I was thinking of building a miniature arcade cabinet to house it in...

I've been working on some helper stuff for efficiently drawing sprites and tiles - if anyone is interested, I've put it up on github, here:

Currently the tiling is limited to 8x8 sized tiles - but the sprites drawn on top can be any size (within memory limits, obviously!), and can be flipped and positioned however required. Screenshot attached!
It uses a line-by-line rendering set up, so there's no overdrawing or flickering. Hopefully this'll help people write some cool games!

I've started working on this, a tiny Outrun style game:

I'll post the code up soon!
