First of all thanks for coming to this post. I’m sure we are all tired to see people not being able to use their newly adopted Arduboy not working (I know I am after reading every post possible).
So basically I received my Arduboy two days ago, and now I want to test multiple games. To do so I followed many different posts (like this one or the classic Quick Start Guide). I’m currently testing on a Macbook Air (running High Sierra 10.13.6) but also tried this afternoon on a more recent machine (still Macbook Air but on Mojave 10.14.5). On both cases, I downloaded the latest version of the Arduino IDE, and tried to have every library updated.
While I was going through the different posts of people struggling to get their port visible I found one that looked a lot like mine (you can find it here) but unfortunately changing cables didn’t help me. I tried 4 different cables, the original one, 2 small that I use for charging headphones and the last one that I use to connect my Kindle (it works very well with my kindle). In every situation, I end up with my Arduboy flashing the red light when I connect it, not the green one though.
BUT! Yesterday night, after trying again to connect it I once again tried to connect the Arduboy (turn it on, connect to laptop, launch IDE, open champagne) and weirdly enough it worked fine! The port was visible and I was able to add a new game!! (I went for MiniRogue)
BUT… I don’t know why today it doesn’t work anymore… The port is nowhere to be seen…
Did it happen to anyone else?
