Title: Gameduino 2
Post by: jamesbowman on Oct 08, 2013, 06:27 pm
Hi all,

I just launched an update to the popular "Gameduino" shield, imaginatively named "Gameduino 2".

Gameduino 2 comes with its own 4.3 " TFT touch panel screen, and has much fancier graphics. The example programs - videos are on each page - give you an idea of what it can do.

If you're interested in getting a Gameduino 2, the first production run is on Kickstarter:

Thanks!

IMPRESSIVE!

very well done ( are you listed on shieldlist.org ?)

Is the screen also available as standalone breakout board ?

update: - thought about a esplora version?

Will the Gameduino 2 work on the Intel Galileo?
Intel Galileo SPI runs at the standard 4 Mhz. rate but could/can be boosted up to 25 Mhz.

Very nice, I heard that chip was hard to work with but you seem to have nailed it.

For the onboard widgets, is it possible to make the background dimensions smaller (closer to the widget) or are they a fixed size? For example, I'm overlapping two gauges, but the background for the higher gauge is too large. I would like to make it closer to the size of the actual displayed widget.

I figured out my own solution. I just run the widget with the NOBG option and draw my own background.
