Title: Esplora LCD Pong Game
Post by: TheKitty on Feb 05, 2013, 04:56 pm
I have used the Esplora + Adafruit 1.8" LCD Display combo to host the game Pong.  Originally by David Rutherford on another Arduino, I ported his code and added Esplora input.

It's a very classic and gorgeus porting !!!
It's the style of vintage  ^_^

Thanks.  I was actually thinking last night that the wiring should allow for hardware SPI which would speed the game beyond playable - then it would be simple enough to use the sliding potentiometer as a speed control.  If there is interest in this post and I'll see about slight code changes.

I'm using a standard Esplora clone with a TFT Screen, but the EsploraTFT library doesn't seem to work for this example?  I tried installing the Adafruit Libraries also, but still no luck.  Any idea how I cgo about translating Adafruit_GFX functions to EsploraTFT functions?

Thanks
