Protoboards should work well!

Unfortunately with how small and crowded the TinyScreen+ board is, it would be difficult to recommend a cleaner solution without using a protoboard.

I've recently seen a few issues come up with custom boards packages used for programming third-party boards, specifically between our SAMD21 boards like the TinyZero and Tiny Arcade.

I recommend that the Legacy IDE be used, the legacy download is available toward the end of the page:

Let me know if that solves the issue!

This is awesome! Thanks so much for sharing!

Glad you were able to figure things out! Thanks so much for updating the complete solution!!


Glad that worked out! I'm still concerned about he audio amplifier Wireling example, however, and I'd like to help get that working.

After reviewing the tutorial, there may be an issue with downloading the example folder so that the files stay intact in the same file directory after unzipping. Can you try downloading the attached zipped folder, keeping the files all in the same folder and open the example by double clicking on the .ino file?

The folder should look like the attached screenshot after you unzip it and you'll double click on AudioAmplifierWireling.ino to open it.

Note: If you can't see the attachments on this message, you'll just need to log in to the forum to view and download them.

Are you using a MacOS device?

We encountered an issue with invisible files a bit ago and I added some information to the FAQ, let me know if this helps:

If not, let me know what computer/OS you're using and any other details so I can try to reproduce the issue!


New Product Ideas / Re: Pre-soldered Breakout Wireling

Hi there! Thanks for sharing your idea. We have a proto terminal block for our regular line of TinyShields for this reason, but I'm not sure a pre-soldered option would be small enough or cost-effective as a product to offer. Hmm, did you have any components in mind for the pre-soldered board?

Here's the proto terminal blocks board:


Hi there! Thank you so much for sharing!

Did you want to attach any pictures to share how the game or app look? If not, I'll get to it at some point and add a binary of the game and app to the tiny arcade games list here:

Let me know if there's any other information or author details you'd like me to include on the page! I'll credit you with your GitHub :)



You can check that the speaker works by using the buzzer example here:

Or here's the direct download to the example:

You'll plug the amplifier into port 0 and you should hear a few tones when the program compiles.


I'll chalk the need to use the bootloader up to some of the timing and interrupt situations in the audio example program putting the processor in an irregular state that interferes with the ability to communicate with the computer port consistently for re-programming. Other programs that don't use interrupts, like the blink example, will give better odds at keeping the processor in a more recognizable state for USB serial communication.

The tutorial was written with Windows in mind, so the apple terminal isn't directly compatible with the instructions - you may be able to use an online tool to convert a file to a C header - can you try out this?


Hi there,

The remote works just with the TinyTV mode - everything else is tiny video player mode. You can check out the settings you can customize here: - the autoplay mode might work well for your application

Here's the programming tutorial if you'd like to alter the software for further customization:

Let me know if you have any other questions!


Hello Luke,

Are you approaching any memory limits with the sketch? There are some tips at the bottom of the tutorial in the Troubleshooting section:

Let me know if that helps!

Hello Thomas,

If it's FAT32 and there are .tsv videos on it, they should play. Perhaps the SD Shield needs re-seated?

There are some other things to check for that can be advised on the FAQ:

Let me know if that helps.

Hiya Thomas,

SD Cards need to be formatted to FAT32 to work with the TVs. There's a tool referenced here on our TinyTV FAQ, but it might only be usable with Windows:

I recommend google searching "format SD Card to FAT32 " along with your operating system "MacOS / Windows(7/8/10) / Linux" to find a tool that works for you.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Hi there krank!

Really happy to hear you like the Thumby Code Editor. The team and community worked hard on making programming on Thumby accessible in both MicroPython and Blockly online.

There's nothing planned for now in making a larger Thumby, but the Code Editor itself has an emulated Thumby that can be used in the classroom setting in place of the physical hardware. For updates on Arduboy or Picosystem support, I'd recommend asking on their forums. If they wanted to collaborate on one big code editor that works for all of us, I don't think we'd be against that.

We're more active on thumby discussions on our Discord if you wanted to join, many members have the other small gaming consoles and might have more answers for you:
