    Surprised that someone already got the v5 to run doom

    Awesome this was finally done! We were wondering how many weeks it would take for someone to do the port one the V5 was released.

    @Download Complete Unfortunately I am 99.5% certain that is faked, the brain is just playing back, frame by frame, a recording of someone playing doom on a different platform. It's kind of obvious when there's no one touching the screen and there's no controller or radio plugged in.

    Looks like the radio is plugged into port 21. Also the code is available on GH. This is the function that updates the controller input.

    Thats a usb cable plugged in, although I'm interested to see/run the code. Hopefully it works.

    You can see a wire come out of port 21 that's above the USB. That could be a radio wire.

    Side note, where the heck do you get the files to even run Doom?

    Edit: NVM, see that Doom actually has source code released.

    Well... that's impressive.

    Yea I'm convinced now, I can't believe I missed that cable in port 21, I can see that now.

    Though I haven't had time to try it.

  13. k thanks

    so how does this work do you just download that code and upload it to the brain or is there something else you need or something else you need to do?

    (sorry if its a stupid question its my first time doing this.)

    thanks

    Idk, just try it.

    On topic: This is way, way more fun than I thought it would be. Will definitely keep for break times at competitions.

    and here's a silly "sort of" pong demo I wrote in VCS a few weeks ago to show how to use the back buffer in VCS to get smooth animation.

    yes, if you have PROS installed, then you can just grab the project from the GitHub repo, build and upload to the V5. For Doom, follow the instructions to place the assets on SD Card.

  20. ok thanks
