Adding games

To add new games head to https://arcade.makecode.com !

Once you have created your game,

  • Press the Download button and say you don't want to pair anything if asked. You should then be given options to select type of board.
  • Select Raspberry Pi (it will have the image of the menu above). This should create a file named arcacde-something.uf2.
  • Copy it to ARCADE drive that should be visible on the computer to which your Pi is connected with the USB cable.

If the ARCADE drive doesn't show up, make sure the USB cable is plugged into the USB port on the Pi that is closer to the HDMI port. The other one is power-only. If using a case, make sure it's plugged all the way in.
