FidgetSpinner - A very simple fidget spinner simulator for Arduboy

Oh yeah…I completely forgot about sound! :sweat: Will add it later, thanks!

1/10 can not recommend.

Spinned my Arduboy so fast that it broke the space-time continuum and throw me back in time where i landed on the very first mammal which destroyed all mankind.

I had to fix that so I’ve turned it a couple of other times in different directions while partly restoring the history in the correct order.

I’m back now after this long journey and the only difference so far is that trump is president.
Thus i can not recommend this game.

Very nice. I actually bought one on impulse today just to see what the fuss was about. Your’s is a lot more fun! So I’m returning the one I bought.

Wasn’t me. I didn’t know what LowRes Coder was until now. Thanks!

Same concept, different creator and implementation. Seems virtual spinners have become a craze in themselves, there’s several on Scratch and I’ve found afew youtube videos of them.

Finally added sound for the new 2.0 version.

I know it took way too long, but I had completely forgotten about this, sorry.

IMPORTANT!

There might be an issue with this project, as seen by this post https://community.arduboy.com/t/after-installing-fidget-spinner-rebooting-hangs-device-no-new-uploads/4133.

As such, please refrain from installing this project while this issue is being investigated, sorry.

When the cause is found, I will update this post with more info.

You might want to temporarily edit the main post too in case the comment gets buried. You can always edit it out later.

For what it’s worth I had no problems after installing the sketch from source. I didn’t try the hex version so it could be the hex that has a problem or it could even be completely unrelated.

I tried to do that at first (for increased visibility), but had to resort to a comment since I can’t seem to find an “edit” option.

It seems like the problem really is with the hex version, compiling the sketch from source seems to be safe.

I’d test it, but I don’t have the facilities to re-burn the bootloader.

I’ve just configured the time limit for users to edit their posts to infinity instead of the default 2 months. Let the anarchy rule.

@Trigonated if you want to go and edit the main thread of the post to either remove the links or make it very clear this can cause problems.

@eried you might think about taking it down or putting a warning on your repo!

I think it would be best to pull the hex file and arduboy files besides the warning. You don’t want to have these versions spread any further.

I fixed it hours ago and checked all the repo binaries with grep. No other game is dangerous. Plus, the last version of my Uploader now will REFUSE to upload any file with a bootloader inside.

OK I have now updated the pre-compiled binaries to not include the bootloader. This is now marked on GitHub as release v2.1. I have also removed the dangerous release (v2.0) to avoid any accidents.

Thank you so much for all the help and sorry for the damage caused.
