Tiny Arcade / Re: SdFat and directories
« on: June 14, 2018, 10:09:38 PM »
I downloaded the source code to SuperOteme. I copied the SdFat library from it. That works. I'm not pleased with this solution as I don't want to keep a copy of that source in my project. It also makes it difficult for my simulator to support it.

Has anyone gotten the SdFat library in Arduino IDE working? Do I need to initialize it differently or maybe alter the SdFatConfig.h settings?

Tiny Arcade / SdFat and directories
« on: June 13, 2018, 07:05:59 AM »
For my color monster game, I've been looking into SdFat. I've been able to write to a file in the root directory. I haven't been able to write a file in a subdirectory. I'd much rather save information in the game directory than in root. I did tried this:
Code: [Select]
dataFile.open("colormonster/colormn1.dat", O_WRITE | O_CREAT | O_TRUNC)Anybody know what I'm doing wrong?

I've been thinking of how to use the TinyArcade. I wanted something which uses the sd card. My current idea is a Pokemon like game. The world is black and white. The creatures aren't very powerful until they gain color. You paint your monsters in the game. I'm still very early in the design. Included a screenshot from my simulator running the painting screen. Might need a zoom screen on the TinyArcade as it is hard to do details on the small screen. The monster is the Cateye taken from the Tuxemon game.

\I canít get Invaders to work, which is why I bought it in the first place!
Are you putting it on an sd card? Did you name the bin the same as the directory name?

Is the game meant to run in a folder or the root directory?
I believe the TinyArcade game selection program requires it to be in a folder with the same name as the game.

Any chance of a downloadable version?
The post above has a downloadable version as an attachment. It was my quick and dirty first port. The newest one is attached to this post. I also posted another article explaining the porting process.

I assembled the TinyArcade and did a quick port of the Viobyte. Code is not available yet. Speaker makes a noise while it is running. Not sure why. The game works but the TinyArcade doesn't register the diagonal direction very well (or maybe my code is wrong). Without that the game is really hard. I think it may also be running faster than on the tinyscreen video game kit but that can be tweaked easily.

I forgot to post that I wrote an article describing some of my development of viobyte.

TinyDuino / Re: TINYSCREEN VIDEO GAME KIT can't be programmed...
« on: November 22, 2017, 10:25:11 AM »
Never mind got it working, the directions from TinyCircuits seems wrong.

Quote
Board = "Arduino Pro or Pro Mini"
Processor = "ATmega328P (3.3V, 8 MHz)"

I did not see this in the docs but in a YouTube video... maybe I missed something but didn't look like it.
The board TinyScreen+ is for the TinyScreen+ not the tinyscreen video game kit which uses the older tinyscreen and tinydruino. I've had a lot of fun with the tinyscreen video game kit. I did a post about my viobyte project.

TinyDuino / Re: Tiny Screen + example compile fail missing sam.h
« on: September 08, 2017, 05:46:20 PM »
I encountered the same problem. Fedora 26 has arduino 1.6.6. I installed arduino 1.8.4 from the testing repository. That allows me to compile my viobyte game for Tinyscreen+ but it doesn't work for some reason. Additionally it fails to compile for the Arduino Pro so I can't build for the video game kit with 1.8.4 installed. I've reverted back to 1.6.6 for now.

« on: August 31, 2017, 09:43:05 AM »

Since Asteroids and Space Invaders are already available, I decided to make a Pac-Man clone. It's not quite complete yet. You can eat dots and ghosts can kill you. No power pellets. The tunnel to the other side of the screen doesn't work. Score and lives are not displayed.

Thanks to zet23t for his simulator and jonwingrove for his sprite library.

Here are the sprites I have so far. So tiny!
Did you end up making anything with these sprites? Are these your creations or are some images from shows/games scaled down?

I've been coding up a pacman clone since I didn't see any version for the tinyscreen.

Looks like the blog as well as the files are gone. Any chance of getting the .stl files?
Files and blog is still around. The link is wrong. It is https://quakatoo.com/pages/Case.html

Tiny Arcade / Re: How do you make games for the Tiny Arcade?
« on: August 25, 2017, 11:24:10 PM »
zet23t thanks for td2play. I don't have the TinyArcade but have been thinking of writing a simulator for the tinyscreen video game kit. I was able to hack yours to mostly run space invaders and another sprite demo I found. It's not pretty.

Of course the space invaders demo program is horribly written. I've tried getting your tiny invaders running on the device but all I get is a star field and then nothing. I haven't tried hacking it to run in the simulator since TinyScreenC.h would need to be replaced.

EDIT: zet23t: I've forked your simulator code. My version is available at https://github.com/dulsi/tinyscreensim. I wanted to focus on only the simulator so I didn't grab the rest of your library.

In my haste to order to the video game kit, I didn't notice the TinyScreen+. I like the idea of trying to cram something into 32K but more storage would make things easier. Maybe I'll order one and another joystick shield.
