[OLD] Arduboy Manager (PC)

I’ll start checking your twitter :slight_smile: It’s just a great concept for switching games quickly. Thanks!

The Mac Download button stopped working :confused:

It isn’t available
@crait said he’s having issues making the program. For now you just need to learn how to compile and upload game files using the arduino program. It isn’t the simplest at first, but after you figure it out it becomes pretty easy :smile:

I saw that @crait had updated this to version 2 recently!

Yeah, I am completely remaking it! Almost done with it, actually! :wink:

Any progress on the Mac version?


Yeah. I have a mac and really want to use this program to! It looks great.

Any plans to release a linux version?

it may work as is on linux linux w/mono, unfortunately right now it looks like the actual HW access bits are not implemented in mono.

My Linux development is very limited, but since I now have a Raspberry Pi, I’m going to get more into it. I still need to get the macOS version pushed out the door.

I’ve finished the second version of the Arduboy Manager, which is completely re-written. I’m looking for people who would be able to help bug test! Here are the new features to expect:

  1. Includes screen mirroring functionality that allows you to mirror the Arduboy’s screen on the computer to easily grab screenshots or record video.
  2. Includes a serial monitor, similar to the Arduino IDE.
  3. Uses the new .arduboy file standard that we made to quickly import files.
  4. It associates and opens .hex and .arduboy files through the File Explorer.
  5. Includes auto-updating functionality! :smiley:
  6. Expanded UI to allow show off all of the new meta fields in the .arduboy format.
  7. Incorporates the new repository standard that I wrote up.

Shoot me a private message if you’re interested!

When selecting games it is very slow not sure whats going on there is a delay around 10 15 seconds windows 10 latest build this is for the new beta.

Yeah, that’s something that I’m working on. It’s like 4 seconds for my computer. There’s also an issue when selecting games that you have to click on an empty spot and cannot click the image. I’m working on those two issues right now and working to get the rest of the games onto the repo.

Ok cool i will keep bug testing.

Only thing i noticed if you use the arrow keys on the keyboard its a bit strange scrolling may have to check that one.But great job nice to see .Arduboys files implemented now nice and easy to upload.

Thanks for the report! The newest version should be 2.10 and should fix other issues that others have resolved. Don’t know why I forgot to post in the thread about it. Anyway, I’m working on creating .arduboy files for all of the existing games in the repo for the new manager as well as getting new games up.
