Tiny Arcade / Re: Cabinet Art Template

Thanks! I kinda already did most of it again, but I'm still learning AutoCAD and might start over anyway, so this will help.

Tiny Arcade / Re: Need help setting up Tiny Arcade as a video player

EDIT: Nevermind, I found the instructions w. the external boards manager link :)

Hi Laveréna, thank you for the reply :)
I think I'll attempt the Menu approach, to also have some games on the "TV"... I have a small challenge in that I can't seem to figure out how to get the tiny screen to show up as a target board in the Arduino IDE... The Blink example that I initially wrote to it was using the "Arduino pro or pro mini" setting... I tried looking in the boards manager, but can't find anything related to the Tinycircuits board (sorry, my aruino skills are pretty non existant, so its all pretty new to me).

The tutorial you still need is this one:

https://tinycircuits.com/blogs/learn/158833543-tinyscreen-setup

It can be annoying to find somehow, but this is the one that shows you how to setup the Arduino IDE to find the boards you need it to find.  Note you need to install TWO boards *and* one Library.  I did it yesterday after much digging and got my TinyArcade playing a video off an SD card.

Note that for some reason, the define doesn't seem to work to set it in "arcade" mode.  I simply commented out the ifdef's specific to the arcade mode, which turn the screen flip back off (my videos were upside down with a straight compile).  Also, by default the code puts a tiny little menu up over your video for a bit (basically letting you know you can cycle through the videos with the left/right joystick, I think) even if you only have one video.  I was too lazy to code this to not happen when there's only one video, and simply commented out the "printNicely" statements and it disappeared.

So the art template is useful, but is there any chance you can make the dxf for the cabinet itself available?  I'd like to make a couple minor changes and have my own laser cutter.  Pretty please?
