This looks extremely good, but what’s the license? Or is it intentionally not licensed to keep the rights? Please let me know, I only want to play freely licensed games.

Oh, um, there is no license in the source code. I guess consider this the license.

“Feel free to use and adapt this code however you like, I hope you enjoy the game, i’m not going to charge you any money for it. If you do heavily re-use parts of the code i’d love for you to give me a shout-out so I can check out your awesome game, but that’s it”

Thank you :slight_smile: Could you maybe attach this statement or some existing license like MIT or GPL to the source? You know, some people are afraid to make modification to unlicensed code because it’s technically copyright infringement, and will be discouraged to contribute, fix bugs etc. - that’s why I only stick to code that’s licensed.

Anyway, this project is really great, can’t wait for my Arduboy to arrive so that I can test it out :slight_smile:

I agree with @drummyfish, not having a licence can put people off.

MIT is probably closest to your intent.
It permits commercial use, private use, distribution and modification, it waives any warranty or liability (as standard) and requires people to keep the licence and copyright notice with the code.

I’m getting a 404 for the link to the .arduboy file.

Looks like @Bergasms moved it and forgot to update the link.

It’s now here:

And if you just want the .hex or the .zip, those can be found here:

Sorry about that! Is it all good now?

Yep! Really enjoying the game :grin:

The links are all fine, but as far as I can see the source code doesn’t have a licence, which is a bit of an issue.

Not sure if anyone else was having this issue but for some reason the sound option in the main menu wasn’t doing anything, highlighted or not, so I had a quick look at the source code and found that I was able to fix this by adding “;” just after “;”

Now the sound is working fine when turned on.

I don’t know what the “official” latest version is or what version you’re using. It does look like the menu sound control wouldn’t work in the version I looked at.

However, you should be able to control the sound using the standard system sound control:

When powering up, press and hold the B button. The RGB LED should light blue. While still holding B:

  • Press UP to enable sound. The RGB LED should flash green.
  • Press DOWN to mute the sound. The RGB LED should flash red.

Release all buttons to continue to the game.

With the version I looked at you should be able to replace:
to make the menu sound control work.
