The TI83-Plus calculator in this video has 512kB of flash memory and 27kB ram, still quite a bit more than 2kB. But it's actually a lot slower, so maybe there's some way of using on-the-fly compression...

The ram on the pc version was used for frame buffers and texture storage since dedicated rendering hardware was not available and just getting it's footing at the time, the reason the calculator can run "doom" is because it's mostly vector or symbol based; not requiring costly rasterization or full screen bitmap buffers. No doubt the attiny chip could run the game code, it would just need an external render graphics chip to draw the visuals

If you do, you can learn lessons from this project and achieve 120FPS (over SPI)!

verylobsterlike

1 week ago

I'm not so sure about that. That uses the raspberry pi's excess CPU power to overcome the bandwidth limits of the SPI bus. By only updating the pixels that changed, you have less data to send, allowing faster refresh rates. The problem is that requires checking each pixel against the previous one, which isn't a big deal when you've got 4 cores running at 1.4ghz, but the ESP is only a dual core 240mhz device. You don't exactly have a lot of extra cycles to work with. Then, even for 320x240x256 colours, that's 230,000 bytes for a framebuffer. Just having two frames in memory to compare them takes 460KB out of the ESP32's 520KB of ram. Edit: Crap, 8 bits per channel is 24bit color. 256 colours would be a third of that.

That's a great project, and it uses some really great tricks to get more performance out of these cheap SPI displays, but I don't think the approach is suited to something as limited as a microcontroller.

TheBoomerangReturns

It wouldn't work with Doom no, but a simple homebrewn game could do it. If you design the game with it in mind, it wouldn't be hard. For example a character with a static background; you'd know the character is the only square on the framebuffer that changes pixels (so you wouldn't have to diff pixels). You have to take into account that the SPI bus on the ESP is 40mhz, which is much lower than the Pi's anyway, so you probably can't achieve 120FPS with non custom tailored games anyway.

I should know. Am well versed in boomer tech.

Edit: those system requirements are offensively wrong.

Min 386SX with 4mb of ram and MS-DOS (probably 5?)

You never needed windows anything to run doom. You certainly don't need a 486.

Edit 2:


SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

DOOM(TM) requires an IBM compatible 386 or better with 4 megs of RAM, a VGA graphics card, and a hard disk drive. A 486 or better, a Sound Blaster Pro(TM) or 100% compatible sound card is recommended. A network that uses the IPX protocol is required for network gameplay.

You would probably want to step it up from the 8MHz onboard clock (if this is that size? I've only worked with ATtiny85s) to an external 16MHz, and then that probably would be less of an issue. I suspect the problem would arise in that youd run out of pins really quick, and no one wants to do that much pin multiplexing

also couldn't you actually run an OS on an Atmel Microcontroller? I mean it basically is a SOC.

it has a CPU, ROM (for OS, Programs, etc), RAM for Program Memory obviously, and IO Pins to connect various stuff like a keyboard and Character and/or Graphic LCD, etc

I don't see a reason this shouldn't work, plus since it's modern you can even use a higher level language to program the OS in

Almoturg

It doesn't really have enough space, 2kB ram and 16kB storage isn't much. The display buffer (just storing one image) already takes half the ram.

Sure, you could even use a small ARM microcontroller and have a lot more performance and storage. The attiny1614 is just the one I had lying around, and sort of know how to work with.

The easiest way would probably be to make the case a tiny bit bigger (1cm longer and maybe 5mm wider) and use a Raspberry Pi zero. Then it could actually run linux and stuff like doom wouldn't be a problem.

Proxy_PlayerHD

no, using a raspberry is boring. everyone does that plus it runs a regular OS. it just doesn't require any effort at all.

just using a microcontroller means you have to fiquire out how to make a functional OS and get data in and out of it while not using up the relatively small amount of Programable space you have.

it's like remaking an old 8 bit System, which is the point of it

ThisIsJustAnAccount7

When you say operating system what do you actually mean? At the most basic level an OS just manages resources. Arduino kind of already does that. If you mean being multi program that’s kind of hard, Arduino can do it kind of. But all the programs will always be loaded, so it’s not really doing that. As far as I’m aware to get a proper OS you would need more than one microcontroller, one that runs programs and the other that loads new programs into the one that runs the program.

All of the OSes for arduino right now essentially are just interfaces, it’s cool and all, but they are more just replicating the visuals of an OS. Except rtos that is just cool being on arduino.

They do make OS for small micro's although the arduino is on the weak side with only 4K of ram. Freertos (Free real time operating system) is a popular one and you get a task scheduler and can set a tick rate.

An operating system is usually a top-level task manager that keeps track of time, resources, etc. It doesn't have to be separate 'programs' when it's a microcontroller and will usually be responsible for making concurrent tasks execute with an equal (or predetermined share) of CPU time.

When tasks switch, it will usually save a pointer to the current location in the current task, write all needed data to memory, and then load a pointer to the task next in the queue to switch to and fetch all the data that was being used in that task.

Proxy_PlayerHD

something like the C64 had. some basic ROM based OS that can maybe run a few programs like a BASIC interpreter and/or Assembler

though as some already said you cannot run stuff from RAM so you would need atleast some external RAM chip to execute programs from.

also sad that Atmel don't sell the CPU's inside their Microcontrollers seperately, who wouldn't want to build an 8 bit Computer based on RISC?

An OS running user programs in native code, no. Not on this AVR at least. Simple reason: you can only run code from ROM, but to load user programs, you would need to be able to run code from RAM. You could, of course, only allow a preinstalled range of programs or use an interpreted language (probably not python), but you would run into size restrictions very fast.

You could use one of the SAM chips, but those are way more advanced that this chip.

I use a display buffer, so one full image is stored in ram before pushing it to the display. And that image takes 128x64 bit = 1kB. That's half the RAM already! It would be possible write directly to the display without the buffer, but that's a bit complicated when you're not updating the whole screen every frame (which is sort of necessary to get the refresh rate).

There isn't really an "OS", it just runs one program. I used (and modified) some libraries for driving the LCD and the LED, but the game logic and integration is custom.

At the moment the color changes from red to green as the snake gets longer (I was a bit overconfident and set it to be fully green at length 100, the best I've got yet was 44 :D). Changing the color with temperature would be an option too, maybe on the startup/game over screen.

Alright. I openly admit this beats my NZXT raspberry pi PC case mod... Yours glows, AND includes a scale monitor and remote in one package!

If OP sees this.. Did my build inspire yours at all by chance? And do you plan to share your 3d files made to print that case? It's amazing and well done!

I wish I had more than one up vote to give!

I didn't see your case before, but it looks pretty cool :)

All the 3d models are on the github: https://github.com/PaulKlinger/tinypc

This is based on my previous tiny model of a gaming PC (without electronics), which is on thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3344995

It's several hours of work to solder everything together, so that would be pretty expensive at a reasonable wage. And I don't really trust my solder joints to hold up during shipping...

At the moment I don't have the components for another one anyway, and it always takes like a month for stuff to get here from china.

That's transparent PLA filament. The window is 2 layers thick in the middle. To get it even this transparent I had to polish it a lot, using abrasive paper from 200 to 5000 grit and acrylic polishing compound.

It clicks nicely, but you need to move it pretty far before it hits the switches and the center button needs a lot of force. I chose it more for looks than because it's particularly great for gaming.
