Re: I guess I just build a...screensaver?

Cool!

Maybe I haven't browsed thoroughly enough, but is there a list available of memory addresses (and their specific functions)? I'm reasonably happy with the 20 second deviation per day as i I have it now, but as long as there is room for improvement...

Cheers,
Marco

I also still have one or two boards available to those interested. They need patching as described earlier in this thread.
Hi Marcel,

I'm certainly interested! I can PM you (or PM me ;) ) if you have a board available.

Cheers,
Marco

I guess I just build a...screensaver?

Merry Christmas to all! The intend was to spend the Christmas holidays assembling the Gigatron (besides entertaining the wife and family), but impatience got the better of me weeks ago and the Gigatron has been happily blinking its lights ever since. I was about to write "humming along" but it isn't...

Re: Sending code to Gigatron with Arduino

Yes, as Marcel already said. Arduino IDE is peculiar like that. All necessary files for the sketch need to be in a single folder, but nothing else. To be on the safe side simply put the content of https://github.com/kervinck/gigatron-rom/tree/master/Utils/BabelFish in an empty folder and you're good...

The VID/PID check works for me!

Re: sendFile.py ported to Python 3

Port detection didn't work for me (on Linux), I connect to ttyACM0 and that one didn't pass the autodetect test. Appending line #131 did the trick: autoDetect = ('Arduino', 'FT232R', 'SparkFun', 'ttyACM') Although this is maybe what you not wanted to do in the first place, and I guess tty.usbmodem s...

Re: sendFile.py ported to Python 3

The hash-bang line is there so you don't have to type 'python script.py blah...', but instead you can just do Utils/sendFile.py Apps/Overworld/Overworld.gt1 That is true of course, and that's exactly the way I run the script. And yes I need to chmod the file too to set the executable bit, for it to...

Re: sendFile.py ported to Python 3

Hi Marcel, As far as I am aware (but again, not a Python expert) the shebang "/usr/bin/env python" line is only applicable when more than one Python version is installed (which I do have) for the interpreter to use the first Python in the PATH environment variable. I do not have Python in my PATH, s...

sendFile.py ported to Python 3

HI all, I have ported sendFile.py to Python 3. Support for Python 2 will end soon, anyway Python 3 is the default on my Linux machines and it's annoying (to say the least) having to switch between Python versions. It's renamed to sendFile 3 .py (no surprise), that is on Github in Contrib/Crouze/ I h...

Re: And I so promised myself... (continued)

Yes, definitely something I'm going to look into. Very interested in interfacing with other devices. I'm thinking of using an NodeMCU with Wifi and MQTT for instance, which (the NodeMCU) is very similar to an Arduino. But indeed I might first start with an Uno. Love the Gigatron, and hats off to you...
