Ardutosh is an OS / desktop environment for the Arduboy miniature game system made for the Arduboy game jam 4 where the theme was 'not a game'.

The style is inspired by the classic Macintosh interface.

  • Remote app : use your Arduboy as a USB keyboard and mouse when plugged into a PC. Gamepad mapping for USB keyboard for use with games.
  • Notes text editor allows you to save text to the EEPROM
  • EEPROM hex editor: inspect and edit hex values of your Arduboy’s EEPROM
  • Battery voltage monitor
  • Internal temperature monitor
  • LED tester

Controls: D-pad controls mouse pointer A : toggle on screen keyboard B : mouse click

Build instructions

To compile from source you will need the Arduboy2 library and the Arduino IDE

Open /Source/Ardutosh/Ardutosh.ino in the Arduino IDE and hit build

Flashing other games

Note that there is a bug with the Arduboy bootloader when flashing new games. If flashing a new Arduino sketch after having previously flashing Ardutosh, then first boot the Arduboy into flashlight mode by holding the up button whilst switching on the device.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
