just got my Pokitto back, was trying a demo, now im stuck in it, shupping the pokitto off and turning back on, doesnt bring me to the “press c to menu” prompt, just back to the demo
nevermind, fixed it by loading the start.bin :>
hello! Glad you got it figured out there
Some things to remember for the future:
Games can be made in a handful of different ways, some of them don’t actually have the same pre-screen of pressing C to enter the loader. For example Javitto you can press the back button in-game to bring up a menu with a change game button which brings up the loader. Minilib, a minimalist library for writing games, you have to actually hold a specific button while turning on the Pokitto to get to the loader (I forget if it is C or Up or Down you have to load heh).
Can also always ask questions in the Matrix / Discord channel! Lots of folks hang out there real-time and it is a bit quicker to get answers to some potential quirky things which are easy to resolve from those with experience But here in the forum is great too! Plus, history is more easily preserved here for future reference
just a bit out of practice, had to fix my Pokitto and just got it working again, wanna reload the games im missing, not a programmer yet, but may give it a try
This way as games get added to that I can do a git pull (locally on a PC) and then copy the changes over to my disk when I’m ready
ihave heard that before, whats a Git Pull??
The easiest way is to actually just download the Zip file by clicking "Code’ then ‘Download Zip’ as shown below.
Ahh ok thank you
Very happy to have you back @jbach50 !
And what a struggle it was!!!
If anyone ever was pulled out of the Sarlach pit, that was you
(Explanation: I sent John 3 spare LCDs on 3 different occasions before it got throught to my thick fat head that he had asked for a spare pcb)!
My bad, git is a version control system,
git pull is the command to pull latest changes from a remote repository (such as ones hosted on github in this case).
Downloaded the archive is just as good though
then before you could send the PCB the people who clean the house for my mom (I live with and take care of my mom) threw the bag I had the disassembled Pokitto in, in the trash… :<
thank you, the other explanation worked, I downloaded the zip and copied to my sd, all is well again :>
