code

battery check

The below code should be uploaded to your 8BitCADE while you charge it. It will show you a live voltage reading of your battery with an indicator so you know when it is fully charged. It will also beep when fully charged to ensure you do not overcharge the battery.

code

hardware test

The below code should be uploaded to your 8BitCADE after you have built your console. This will ensure all of your components are soldered correctly and that your 8BitCADE has been made correctly. It will show a graphic of your 8bitcade and will identify what is being pressed when – as well as testing all of the features.

HARDWARE

System Control Mode

Pressing and holding the B button when powering on will enter System Control mode. The LED will light blue to indicate that you are in system control mode. You must continue to hold the B button to remain in this mode. This mode is used to access features such as audio on/off and flashlight mode. The below file explains how to get these features.
