Q:
How to install/ download makecode arcade editor on the kitronik arcade game pad
Asked by: Noor
A:
Hi Noor,

Thank you for your question, you would start by creating a code on the make code editor on the link below. Click new project and create your code in there. Then click download and click on the option that says Kitronik Arcade. It will take a moment but it will then create a .uf2 file. Connect your arcade to your PC with a micro USB and then drag the file onto the Arcade that should appear as a USB device and that will load the code you have created onto the Arcade.

Q:
Is there any way to expand the program storage over the 512K on CPU flash? I've seen other devices use an external flash chip for game asset storage.
Asked by: Steven
A:
Hi Steven,

Thank you for your question, in theory yes you could, but not trivially. You could in theory connect additional memory to the expansion ports and then recode the boot loader but it would be a pretty involved change.

Best Regards

Q:
Which blocks do you use to setup the haptic feedback in arcade on the Controller?
Asked by: Scott
A:
Hi Scott,

Apologies for the delay in replying, it took me a little while to work out the way it worked. In the programme you need to add the controller extension and in that extension there is a vibrate function that you can use.

Best Regards

Hi Kevin,

Thank you for your question, Python is in Beta for the platform and is being developed by microsoft. Our kit should be compatible but we will have to see what the situation is when python based codes are released by microsoft.
