Arduino Helicopter Game

25/02/2010

Wow. Really interesting helicopter game with several nice feautures.

Specifications:

  • just under 8kb (so it should fit a cheap Atmega-8)
  • Speed and block size grow
  • Still a little glitchy, weird artifacts, is anyone able to fix them?
  • Day and Night mode, hold the button when game over for night mode, gentle press for day
  • Score build in, post your highscore in the comments ;)

To play:

  • Connect a KS0108 LCD as described in the library’s page
  • Connect a button with a pull-down resistor to pin 12
  • Make sure the KS0108 library is available
  • Upload the sketch
  • Enjoy!

Download it here…

nice job Dave.

Arduino Pachube Library

24/02/2010

As I read on this blog post by Jose Anes, he has been working on a while on the Arduino > Ethernet shield > Pachube communication, to achieve “a Pachube manual update client on the arduino that pushes EEML XML format to Pachube directly, without a PC in the middle”.



If someone has a better library, please let me know where to find it.  Here is a link to the code I am using to accomplish this purpose.  So far it is working well enough.  Some interesting points:
  • I had to print directly to the stream (ethernet in or out), because creating an EEML XML string was too much for the small memory of the Arduino.  Direct writing as a stream solves that.
  • I still want to avoid the reset every time it uploads to pachube (took that from the pachube CSV example).

The code: 20100218-pachube
