I've just received my first Pixl.js and started trying it out. However, it doesn't display any text at all. am I doing something wrong? I've tried a few of the examples and everything else works fine. If I try for example the dinosaur game, it won't print "Game over" if I hit a cactus.
Or a simple example:
// Draw a pattern with lines
for (i=0;i<64;i+=7.9) g.drawLine(0,i,i,63);
// Update the display when done
The attached screenshot is what I see on the screen.
Can anyone help me?
Yes, sorry about this - it was a bug in version 1v98 of the firmware on a few Pixls that had been sent out - I thought I had contacted everyone affected, but obviously not.
All you need to do is update your firmware to 1v99 using the instructions here and an iPhone/Pad or Android device and everything will start working: http://www.espruino.com/Pixl.js#firmware-updates
thanks for the quick reply. It was my mistake, I actually had 1V97 and flashed 1V98 myself because I didn't see 1V99. Just updated and it's working like a charm. Thanks again!
Just a thought, perhaps you could help inattentive people like me my grouping the firmware files in folders by device name.
Thanks - yes, it's not very easy at the moment. I might actually just make a page that lists all the files for that specific board type - the releases and also the 'cutting edge' travis builds, and perhaps a link to the ChangeLog.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
