It's just a BASIC, if you know it you can play with #IchigoJam with no problem.
And you can buy real hardware here: https://pcn-en.stores.jp/ I will be buing few of them after the paycheck ;)
@sloum I don't know what's inside the package. but looking at the pictures its probably japanese. But I know BASIC well so I juz needed to have reference for commands. And I looked at the code ppl publishing here/twitter and ichigojam subpages (i clicked all links on those crazy japan pages)
I see JS version but I really like the feel of old C64 that IchigoJam gives. Also 1KB restriction is an added challenge to the fun I have with it.
Until I get Ichigojam PiZero is good enough
@sloum I forgot about one neat/nerd feature OG IchigoJam have: you can plug into it additional EEPROM chip and save (1KB) programs there. Then plug it to the other one (e.g. friend) and copy the code to that device. Or use it like an external memory to run programs from it.
There are few options up to couple of MB of storage.
I'm happy that my research helps also you ;)
@w84death I've read through the language documentation and most of it makes sense to me (all of the things that make sense to me in other languages make sense here too). With the exception of arrays. There is not much explanation. Are you able to store data in an array and access by index? Can an array be assigned to a variable like: LET A, [1,2,3,4]
then retrieve 2 with something like A?
Do you know if there is a builtin for returning the line number (ie. to store the current line number to a variable, then goto somewhere and then use the line number variable as part of the navigation to a different area of the program?)
Thanks again in advance!
