Arduboy Game Jam 4: Complete!

The file associations of a HEX file would not normally open it in Notepad … you must have thought, I know - I will see if it has clear text in it!

@Tariq has sent me a PM … he described his ‘program’ to me and it should do more than what he posted. He will probably repost it.

Yep I thought 9 bytes is way to short for even a single line of hex and thought I had a peek at it’s contents (more thinking it may be an corrupt upload then a prank)

As I added to my prev post (while you were typing), I think it was a corrupted upload or some other error.

For what it’s worth, Tariq told me before doing that, that he took the hello world example and just edited it. Didn’t really understand the point. But now it’s even worst than I thought if he really just renamed to .hex a text file…

I now understand that he didn’t know what he was doing and it was unintentional.

It may be useful to add some instructions (or a link to) on how to export a hex file using the Arduino IDE and submitting the correct hex file (ie without bootloader) to the first post.

Here’s my entry, ArduMetronome.


Teaser of what I’m working on


Very Sierpinskiesque.

Nice job! :slight_smile:
I though of implementing Rule30 as well, but then I went for something else. Are you going to allow randomization of the cellular automaton’s rule?

Updated the image to have the correct end date of 15.

Also clarified there are TWO categories. So the top 3 most useful and top 3 most useless games will all be winners!

Good luck everyone!

Not sure if I should register @Vampirics and my entry on this thread but here it is > Coder's Toolbox [V1.0]

You so should do rule 110 too!

Good to see you got it going!


Oh, well, here is my lazy entry (WIP)!

Contest: Arduboy Gam Jam 4
Entry: Most useless app
App: Magic 8 Arduball

Based on the wonderful future prediction of the magic 8 ball.

How to use? Ask something very loud to your arduboy and the magic 8 arduboy will give you some wise advice!

During my internal tests I asked very loud if I should run for this jam, the reply was: “As I see it, yes.” So, here it is!

What does it say when you ask if you will win the (not a) Game Jam?
