Do we need a FAQ?


#1

Hi,
There could be FAQ for those small things you do not want to make a tutorial for. There could be several FAQs for progamming, HW related etc.
Yes, we have forums and a search capability but maybe it is easier to read the FAQ to find a correct solution.

What do you think?


#2

What sort of ‘small things’ exactly?


#3

Here is an example:

Q: How can I speed up the coding-testing cycle?

A: Add to the My_settings.h file:

#define PROJ_DEVELOPER_MODE 1

That disables the startup screen and removes the launcher start query delay.

Love this! Thanks for share!


#5

In that case I think we could do an FAQ,
but I think we’d need to gather some ideas first,
until we have enough to actually fill an FAQ.


#6

Maybe more than FAQ it could be TIPS & Tricks? A collection of suggestions to newcomers.


#7

Yes, the point is that each time you learn something that could be useful for the rest of us, there should be a place where you could quickly put it. Preferably, at least somewhat structured place, so it can be easily found by others.

I have just completed the new volume control thingy. Next step is a new game disk release. But, after that I intend also to focus on documentation & stuff.

As far I am concerned, a FAQ must be done because we’re going to be doing the collaboration thingy with the big school.

If you all start making a contents/topics and we write it here, I promise to format it into actual pages on the site / downloadable PDF
