ARDUBOY on display st7920

Is it possible to create ARDUBOY on display st7920? How do you think?

Yes and No.

  • No as in the display is not compatible with the SSD1306 OLED display so you can’t upload existing Arduboy hex files.

  • No as in the LCD display refresh rate is much slower than that of the OLED display. many games uses a frame rate of 60 fps. which results in blurry or non visible animations.

  • Yes as in the display supports 128x64 graphics mode and a serial interface. But you would need to edit the display initialisation and display code of the libraries to make it work. The displays datasheet will be useful for that.

tldr;

You would need to write your own code to make the display work.
