I’ve just tried to upload the hex file and the app is stable. Something is wrong with the compilation on OS X…
I use a Mac as well. If you had said the mac was running Catalina I might have wondered it that was the issue. I think it is more likely to be some issue with the Arduino version you have.
Thanks for reminding me. As you know, I use VSCode so it is not an issue I think about regularly.
The music maker for this is so awesome since I use a Mac and can’t use the converter thing for BeepBox. Now I can make some tunes that will work!
I use midi2Tones on my Mac … you just have to compile it!
What?! How do you compile it?
I noticed a small bug with the music editor - if you make a tune with some rests and then change the range it turns all the rests into notes.
Ahhh … thank you. I shall fix it over the immediately and repost.
Thanks … I have fixed that now!
So how do you use midi2tones to compile on your mac? I thought it was a Windows only thing since all I could find was a .exe.
To compile midi2Tones on a Mac
Download the code from here > https://github.com/MLXXXp/midi2tones
Open a Terminal window and navigate to the download directory.
Compile the program using the command:
gcc midi2tones.c -o midiConverter
Then copy your midi file into the same directory.
Run the command:
./midiConverter -o2 sample
Where sample is you midi filename without the file extension.
If you happen to get the error 'Invalid Active Developer Path', then follow the instructions here.
I have ‘borrowed’ some code from another Game Jam entry (Arduboy Sprite Editor (ASE)) and now we can import images from Serial. I don’t feel so bad as I did contribute a minor function to that code base.
I will release this version of the program after the Game Jam is complete, not beforehand.
Glad to help!
Don’t tell @MLXXXp but I hacked his ArduboyTones library
You can do whatever you want with ArduboyTones as long as you honour the terms of its (MIT) licence agreement.
I didn’t try to put it in the app, but could almost be that star war tune.
And the prize goes to … @vampirics !
I would love to see (well hear actually) what others have composed.
Could almost make a Coder’s ToolBox music creation Jam. The winner would have his original music featured in the next Press Play On Tape game.
