Re: USB sound adaptor caution

So I popped it open in view of adding some coupling caps to block the DC, and low on behold there was space marked out for them on the board, just unpopulated with a bit of track shorting where they go, cut the track and put some capacitors in their rightful place and it now sounds 100 times better....

Re: USB sound adaptor caution

Minecraft Compatibility -outdated server.upgrade for 0.1.1?

Minecraft on the Pi was running well, we have a number of devices running minecraft pocket edition in the house (my phone, wifes phone, kindle fire).

is your software writing to the card at all? datalogging? or even just saving some parameters and maybe not closing the file properly?

Re: Minecraft: Pi Edition - Strange windows and no sound

I read elsewhere that the sound files arent included in the download, so no sound is deffo deliberate. I assume getting the sound working wont be as simple as copying the files from pocket edition, so will have to wait for mojang on that one.

Re: Minecraft: Pi Edition - Strange windows and no sound

Yeah the offset is there but hardly an issue. The way you can select your inventory in full screen is a total pain though. Has anyone come up with a work around for that? (other than coming out if full screen each time).

Re: Can we actually expect to see Minecraft Pi anytime soon?

totally, the kids (and me :roll: ) are eager to get it on the pi I figured I'd wait for the proper release. an updated version (0.6.0, then 0.6.1 with bug fixes) for the phones has just been released so I guess Mojang have been pretty busy with that, I just wish they would keep drip feeding news eve...

Re: Unit DOA?

A friend had the same, the card wasn't blank and the partition with the files as described above showed on windows but it didn't boot. I put the latest wheasy on and it worked fine.

Re: Raspberry Pi for children/students/beginners?

As above magpi is great, also if you have a kindle or smartphone/tablet with the Kindle app "meet the raspberry pi" is well worth getting.

Navigating the FAQs wiki and forum may be a. It disjointed at the moment as things are new but if you take your time you'll find what you need.
