EMS Labs has released PDF-documentation and some new programming libraries for their Meggy Jr RGB handheld game development platform. The Programmable Guide is really well-done, clear and concise. Even I can almost figure it out. The code libraries (The Meggy Jr Library) provide a software interface to the Meggy Jr hardware and macros and functions (The Meggy Jr Simplified Library) that float on top of that. The Meggy Jr Simplified Library allows you to get started quickly without having to deal too much with understanding Display Memory or the nuts and bolts of communicating with the hardware. It also simplifies some of the excesses of the Arduino environment, so in the words of Windell: “you can just use the darned thing.”
