I guess it helps in a way that Java is available since some people can't stand lower level languages like C/ASM, but I am curious about the speed and size of simple games?

What languages can Gamebuino games be programmed in by the way, besides C?

Not too many, but:

  • Assembly

  • C

  • C++

  • Java

  • Scripting languages / Bytecode languages




Um, how does java run on it?

Via a VM probably :P


I highly doubt that a Java VM would be able to run on an Atmega328p, in fact, I'm nearly positive it can't.

http://playground.arduino.cc/interfacing/java - though i don't know if that actually runs on the arduino

It works good. UJ from Dmitry Grinberg works great after some small modifications to the code.

DJ Omnimaga

I am kinda surprised by this, considering the Nspire CX runs at 150 MHz or higher with over 64 MB of RAM, yet it lacks full java compatibility.

Seems a bit similar to the Arduboy :P

Maybe. But the Gamebuino is still cooler and better looking :P

DJ Omnimaga

I must say that I like the colors that they chose for the Arduboy, though. ;)

You can get java on the Nspire, with linux!

DJ Omnimaga

Oh right, what was I thinking? ??? I remembered that someone wanted to port Jazelle to the Nspire way before Linux arrived, but it never came to fruition then it was deemed impossible by some people to have java on that calc. I tend to forget about Nspire Linux sometimes (probably the fact the platform is so locked down)

Nspire linux is awesome, I can program an arduino using just my calc

Snektron

Program a second NSpire using your first NSpire :P
