Quake and Quake III, but not Quake II?

I've been searching around hoping for a way to get Quake II on my RetroPie, however all I ever see is how Quake and Quake III are available with Ports. If Quake III is possible, surely II is? If it is possible, how can I go about getting Quake II to work? Should I use Ports, or a PC engine, or what?...

Re: An infra red "on/off"breakout board

I have just learnt about the run pin holes, don't know how I missed those before. Anyway, would it be sensible to use these somehow? Basically I want to make a remote control which when I press just one button on it, it interacts with an IR sensor which behaves like a button switch would on a run pi...

An infra red "on/off"breakout board

Would it be possible to make a sort-of breakout board (I don't know if that would be appropriate) with an infra red sensor for my the Raspberry Pi 3 that allows me to power up after powering down a bit like a TV remote? Otherwise I have to pull out the power supply after shutting down and put it bac...

Error with Code::Blocks when debugging

Hi, So I get this message on the console when I'm debugging my code. The code is fine now, but I get this: warning: GDB: Failed to set controlling terminal: Operation not permitted This doesn't seem like an overly complex issue, but as a beginner it's still beyond me and I don't want to end up messi...

Re: C plus plussers?

The C++ compiler on the Pi is the standard GNU one, supporting C+ 11 which means it is used on many other platforms as well. So, most tutorials on the language itself will be relevant whatever platform you are on. As for Pi specific stuff, don't know of anything in particular. Note you can use C li...

Re: C plus plussers?

I don't understand your problem. I m using c++ too with the raspberry and I use c++ library for GPIO managment, text to speech, UART, I2C, facial recognition. You don't need special "online communities", there is a lot of c++ code on the net, specially for complex code that need something fast. It'...

C plus plussers?

Many people use C++ with Raspberry Pi here? Do you know of any online communities devoted specifically for using C++ with RPi? I'd be quite interested to know. I'm hoping to use it for simple robotics. I've only recently started learning, it's a steep learning curve!

Re: Introduce yourself!

Two posts in the Introduction section, not good. Hi I signed up about two years ago but after a series of house moves I never did anything with my RPi and it got boxed away as I didn't know what to do with it. Well, here I am! Again. I am learning Python and C++, as I'm interested in robotics. I hop...

Re: Introduce yourself!

From England here, I go by either this or "bleakside" across the internet, but since it's so vast we've probably never met. My brother bought me my Raspberry Pi a couple years ago, for Christmas. He bought me a Python book too but unfortunately it wasn't the best written book and even my dad (who is...
