LCD + DOOM!

Thu Nov 13, 2014 8:47 pm

Ok, so I connected an SPI LCD and ported Doom to the VoCore. Speed isn't great but it's sort of playable.

I also ported MoarNes. They run a lot smoother on a smaller LCD,

Good job! I'm impressed that such a tiny processor has enough memory and processing speed to run that.

Why would I do that? Much more fun to write it all from scratch instead of using other peoples code!

Actually, my LCD isn't listed there as compatible. It has 8bit SPI + D/C pin. I have ordered another LCD off ebay that IS on the supported list and is currently available cheaply.

I will write up some more stuff on getting that screen running when I have it.

Return to VoCore & VoCore+Dock
