How to Help

Page history last edited by Pasquale Barilla 10 years, 6 months ago

As a volunteer for Playpower, there are many ways to help.  It really depends on your skill set.

The best way to help is to learn to program the $10 computer

 

Technical

 

Game Porting

  • Help port a classic educational game

 

Development Documentation

 

Visual Design

  • Design an 8-bit character
  • Create a Character Set
  • Create an International Font

 

Development Research

  • How to accept Keyboard input?
  • Memory map of registers
  • Target memory mapper

 

Development Tools

  • cc65 has a compiler library called rNES, but it is incomplete. 
  • nBASIC can supposedly create functional games, but this needs testing.

 

Cartridge Development

  • USB or SD Card Integration
  • Designing a low-cost flash-based cartridge

 

Game Frameworks

 

Education

  • If you are in college, it is usually pretty easy to get school credit for contributing to Playpower.  Ask us how:  derek@playpower.org
