Hmm, I can't say I've run into that issue before!

Probably something to do with it not being in the right place. You can go through the Library Installation page to check and see what might have gone wrong so it doesn't happen again:

Happy to hear you like them! We are looking to include animations in the future in a web page to show how pieces fit together.

Hello Alan,

We made the edits to the pictures and the wording that you suggested. You can review the changes here:

Tiny Arm Assembly

Hello Alan,

It looks like there was some sort of bug in the servo code. It was fixed up by Ben, and will be corrected on the website. For now, it is corrected in the GitHub repo, and you can download it:

Premium Robot Kit Corrected Code

Oops, sorry about that!

The ATtiny841 library was the hold-up on the premium kit program and since we are in the process of changing everything over to fit that library, I missed that in testing since I have the library installed here.

That will be fixed immediately across everything!

Thank you for bringing that to our attention :)

Hmm. It's possible you have an older version of the TinierScreen library too?

I have both libraries and they both have a font.h file and I am able to compile and upload the programs to a RobotZero. The only difference I see between us is my master files are just named GraphicsBuffer and TinierScreen in my library directory. You could try re-downloading the newest version of TinierScreen from the GitHub page:

Hope that helps!

It took a while to get into a publishable format - so thank you for your patience!

It is now available from the Learn Page:

Or you can directly download the zip folder here:

It looks like you need the most updated version of the GraphicsBuffer library:

Hello John,

We'll look into it, but we are not aware of anything like that for now!



General Discussion / Re: Windows 7 USB driver RobotZero board

You should definitely be selecting RobotZero for the RobotZero processor, otherwise, your programs will not work as expected or even at all.

The TinyScreen+, TinyZero, WirelingZero, and RobotZero all share the same processor (the SAMD21) so they all show up as "TinyScreen+" in the Arduino IDE due to the way the board package is written. This is a little confusing, but it means that your computer is correctly recognizing your RobotZero, so that's good!

It's strange that you're getting a failure even though the programs are uploading. I'm using Arduino IDE version 1.8.8 and I don't have that problem, so maybe there are some bugs in the most recent version? It's a hassle to undownload the IDE and redownload a different version since you have to reinstall any boards packages, but that could help if you continue getting these mixed messages.

Before trying that, I would recommend turning your computer off and back on, and using bootloader on the RobotZero to get it out of this behavior.

I hope that helps!

Make sure you have the correct Tools selections under the Tools/ tab of the Arduino IDE:

The board power switch must also be toggled to ON.

If neither of those are the case, you can put the RobotZero into bootloader mode and then select the bootloader port and go from there. You may need to try it a few times before it works. Check the notes section for how to use bootloader mode:

Best of luck! Let me know how it goes.

In Step 2 of the RobotZero setup tutorial, there is a mention of the ftdi drivers you'll need to download for Windows 7:

Tiny Arcade / Re: Tiny arcade stuck in bootloader mode
« on: February 10, 2020, 06:31:19 PM »

You can try putting the Tiny Arcade into the bootloader mode, and then doing some on/off power cycling to see if it will snap out of the loop you seem to be experiencing. (To put in bootloader mode, turn the unit power switch off, then hold in the two right arcade buttons while turning the unit on - this is the case where it should actually show the "bootloader mode" screen)

You can also try re-uploading the program that runs on the Tiny Arcade here:

That should help get it out of the weird loop that was encountered. Let me know if it doesn't, or if you have any other problems!

If you have an error, it would be helpful to show us what it is so we can better help you.

The likely reason for the error as you try to add the Additional Boards Manager URL, found in the TinyScreen+ tutorial(

is that you are missing a comma either before or after as you add it to the list. There is a picture in the tutorial with the link, and this may be helpful in placing the comma or being able to see if there are any large differences in this menu as you attempt to add the board URL.

I hope that helps, and let me know if it does not or if you have any more information on the error you are seeing!

Also, would still love to know where you found a dead email so that it can be corrected.

Glad you were able to figure it out so fast!
