Hi, I'm pic and this is my space invader

A frustrating week to get my PIC 16F628A work outside the programmer without external crystal. It finally worked. I got it to blink a led. That should have been like three minutes. After that I was quite prepared to debug every little detail one by one from stamp setup to pic setup. However, just out of curiosity I copied the matrix bit of the code and pasted it into picbasic, changed the pin names and it worked! So the part that was supposed to take the week was done in three minutes.

Back in Finland

Back in Finland from very productive week in UK. I take this opportunity to thank again Dan and Lisa for their generous hospitality and Tom & Toby from The Media Centre and Derek from The University of Huddersfield for their support for TileToy project.

UK week, part 4

It's been a good day, apart from my Marines getting their ass kicked in Space Hulk. Four tiles! We are getting there. Dan made a quantum leap in detecting actual connections in the Java side and started programming the first app. If we are lucky, we might have some 8bit eye-candy tomorrow.

UK week, part 3

Promising speed with three tiles. Currently just detecting connecting sides, nothing else. We are approaching the milestone to start design the real games/plays though. Few good ones on paper already. Stay tuned, check the clip below.
