The Arduboy Manager is a simple program created by Jonathan Holmes (crait) that allows you to quickly download and install games onto your Arduboy without any programming experience! Just run the program and it will automatically connect to my server and download games for you. Turn your Arduboy on and connect your Arduboy through USB and it should be automatically detected. From there, simply select the game you’d like to install and click Transfer!

- “Nothing happens when I connect the USB cable!” Make sure you turn on the Arduboy before connecting the USB cable.
- “My Arduboy is not being recognized by Windows!” You may be using a charge-only cable. Try finding another USB cable that supports data transfer.
- “My Arduboy is still not detected!” Okay, okay… It is most likely a driver issue. Check out this guide for making sure you have proper Arduboy drivers installed.
- “I get a pop-up saying that I need .NET Framework!” The .NET Framework is already installed on most general-use PC’s. If you’re using an older version of Windows, you may need to upgrade to a newer service pack that has at least v4.5 Of course, you can always download the .NET Framework installer directly from Microsoft.
If you have any other questions, feel free to post below. Include which version of Windows you’re running, as well as what kind of USB port you’re using, along with any additional information that you think will help!
