Q:
Is there a quick way to test your game whilst developing it without downloading it to the physical microbit and then plugging in to the Zip 64? The simulator on microbit makecode does not show the Zip 64 display or buttons.
Asked by: jimmy
A:
Hi Jimmy,

I am afraid there is nothing easy the simulator was created for the micro:bit foundation so is all around simulating the base micro:bit rather than add ons that we have created unfortunately.

Q:
Hello, im wondering hos to download the pong game to the micro:bit. Could someone help me with my problem?
Asked by: Erik
A:
Hi Erik,

Thank you for your question hopefully we can help!

So first off go to the Game ZIP Product Page, I have linked it for you below.

https://www.kitronik.co.uk/5626-game-zip-64-for-the-bbc-microbit.html

Scroll down to resources and click on Pong Game Download that should be in green text.

This will try and download a ZIP File. Once you have the file downloaded open your download folder and right click on it. Select the option "Extract all..." This will then extract the files from the ZIP format we host them in.

Plug your micro:bit into your PC with a micro USB cable. It should appear like a USB device and you should then be able to drag and drop the newly extracted files onto the micro:bit. The yellow light on the back should flash and then the code should be downloaded.

We also have a guide on putting programmes onto the micro:bit below

A:
Hi there,

Thank you for your question you canuse Yotta offline either with GCC or ARMCC. There is a pretty good resource on the link below by the Univeristy of Lancaster around using Yotta.

Q:
We're planning to order 7 more Game Zip boards. We'd love to buy the cases with them as the LEDs are very bright. We have a laser cutter so we could cut them ourselves, but to order the Grey Perspex Sheet the shipping to the US would probably be quite high. Is there an easy way to get the Game Zip acrylic case in a cost effective way?
Asked by: David Fisher
A:
Hi there,

I have taken a look for you and there is not much we personally can do but acrylic and perspex is a material that is sold world wide so you could pick up some more locally to yourself. That would be my suggestion and then use our codes to cut the acrylic.

Best Regards

Q:
Hello! I code for the microbit using Python and the mu code editor (codewith.mu). Is this product compatible with this editor? Thanks!
Asked by: Wendi
A:
Hi Wendi, Unfortunately at the moment there is a slight software issue with MicroPython which results in the :GAME ZIP 64 not working as excepted. Further details can be found on the product page for the item. We are hopeful that this will be resolved shortly.
