in the original Arduboy library there was a master file. Does Arduboy2 library use a master file as well?
You shouldn’t have downloaded and installed a “master” file even for the original Arduboy library. Doing that was incorrect. Libraries should be installed using the Arduino Library Manager, as has been stated to you repeatedly.
Before I used the master file I could never get anything to load up, when I used it I could get it to load the games no problem on the original library.
Because you were trying to install games in the wrong place. You shouldn’t have had an Arduboy folder on your desktop. Games are supposed to be installed in the Arduino sketchbook folder. That’s why I said follow the Adding Programs guide and ask if you need help with that.
where do I find the sketch folder?
With a freshly installed Arduiino IDE it will be the Arduino folder in your Documents folder (and please don’t change it). This is all described in the Adding Programs guide.
I will have a look later. I’ll get my Mrs to have a look as she’s got a better understanding of file paths.
Phil I really think you are turning a simple task into something very complicated by NOT following the Quick Start Guide and trying to do it your own way instead. If you simply followed the guide, step by step, carefully, and without skipping any parts, you would have a working Arduboy by now.
My wife has followed the guide step by step and she’s a lot brighter than me, and she can’t do it either.
we keep getting this error message: Arduino: 1.8.1 (Windows 10), Board: “Arduino Leonardo”
C:\Users\philg\Documents\Arduboy Games\YouWontSurvive\YouWontSurvive.ino:12:21: fatal error: Arduboy.h: No such file or directory
exit status 1
Error compiling for board Arduino Leonardo.
This report would have more information with
"Show verbose output during compilation"
option enabled in File -> Preferences.
You have not installed the Arduboy library again. Follow the guide step by step please. Clearly you are not.
Is that the method for installing the libraries in the Quick Start Guide?
sorry mate but i don’t find that comment helpful!
How did you install the Arduboy library?
You have also messed around with your sketchbook location again. Read back in this thread. Scott clearly told you what it should be and you’ve changed it. Change it back to what Scott said.
Excellent. Well done.
A big thank you to Scott, Mike and Kevin who help me sort my Arduboy out.
No problem Phil. Just remember what you did this time and replicate that for each time you upload a new game and you’ll be good to go.
