Displays for classic Arduinos

Arduino driving TFT display

You often hear that to work with graphic displays on the Arduino platform you need to use a Mega or other high-performance board. I got curious about how much you can actually get done on an a measly Uno and similar boards based on the classic ATmega328P. You can find the ongoing results on my wiki.

The story so far: 128×64 and smaller monochrome displays are usable. The smallest TFT displays much less so.

enchant.js | Fundamentals


We’ve entered Phase Two of my game programming course, and to help support this phase, I’m putting together enchant.js | Fundamentals.

While currently not as interactive nor as descriptive as what I developed for Phase One, I’m hoping these incremental examples will make it easy for those new to programming to grok some fundamental techniques and concepts.

Again, feedback is appreciated.
