hi all, i’m new over here, just have a little question
i’m waiting for some pieces to build my own arduboy and would love to create at least one game for it, i know some C# but wanna study something more, should i go for C and C++? or learn to program for arduino? (like, taking a course for arduino exclusively)
i saw the tutorials here but there’s some things that i have on my head already but don’t know how to make them and don’t see it on them
also some time ago i saw a tutorial on how to write games on C for the gameboy and it looks pretty similar to what you do with arduboy this one
sorry for the long message and sorry if i write some things wrong, i’m argentinian so my english can be pretty bad
I think if you want to write games for the Arduboy then your best bet is to do the tutorials. if you are a c# developer, you will be able to rip through them pretty quickly and be able to expand on your knowledge.
I was going to suggest you study Portuguese as a joke. I was in Buenos Aires a few months ago and loved it.
as i said before i’ll definitely gonna start with the tutorials, and for the asking for help part too, is just that i had really bad experiences in other forums asking for things, instead of helping people just laugh because i didn’t know how to do something basic for them, i got used to try to do all alone because of that
i was thinking about this, i really like the possibilities arduino have but for now i’m just interested on the arduboy
i’ll take a look to that collection too, really thanks n.n
Fortunately you shouldn’t have problems with that here.
If you’re in any doubt, feel free to have a look through some older help topics and see first hand the kind of responses people get to their questions.
There is quite some overlap.
The Arduboy doesn’t make as much use of the Arduino library as other environments, but it does make some use of it and pretty much everything from the Arduino library can theoretically be used on the Arduboy.
I’d like to add that most Arduino devices are in fact programmed with C++.
As much as Arduino likes to claim that there is some ‘Arduino language’,
it’s actually just C++ with an extra preprocessing step that converts .ino files to .cpp files.
