I need some help with two issues I’m having:
I seem to have trouble communicating with my pro micros through the COM port after on no less than three different boards. The funny thing is, they all (at least two of them) stopped responding in the Arduino IDE after I uploaded Arduventure. First time I did it through a hex uploader, the other time through a normal sketch upload. I think it really sounds silly, but that’s the only common factor I can think of. Nothing happens in the device manager also. The game works however in my custom arduboy, What have I done?
I have two buzzers - one analogue and one digital. When I started I thought the both looked the same and connected the digital one (I now know). No resistors or anything just pin 5 and gnd. The sound was bad but kind of acceptable but then I found out that I was using the wrong one and switched to the analogue. Much better audio.After fiddling around with the build, adding a LIPO and charger, the speaker became worse and worse to the point where they both sound horrible. I googled and came up with conflicting answers to if a resistor is needed or not, or if you could break the buzzer or the actual board pin. The piezo buzzers seen very standard: https://goo.gl/images/C2Ncfz
I have this problem on both of the above boards. I switched to my UNO and both buzzers seem fine from a standard test sketch.
Hope you can help! Cheers!
EDIT: I found “Upload Game” in the Arduventure menu and I came to new insights. If I hold down, plug in the USB, upload sketch and then release when it goes from compiling to upload. I then found similar threads about it. Strange that a sketch can change a bootloader like that, no?
