Beginners Guide to Coding Squirrel for Attract Mode!
« on: February 27, 2021, 01:27:50 PM »
about a year ago, i started learning to code, with the end goal of rebuilding the turbografx mini GUI as an Attract Mode layout. it took me about 2 weeks to learn enough to feel confident enough to start, and I (Basically) finished the layout within that month (May 2020). this was my first experience coding, so I was starting from scratch.

check out that layout here: http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=3397.0

any of you who have tried to learn, or remember starting to code in squirrel know how little info there is about this language out there.

I ended up using a mix of 2 or 3 resources, the attract mode recourse thing, and that IoT tech resource that people talk about.

during my time learning, I was taking notes, and I believe that this info could be useful to others starting out!

there might be some slightly incorrect info, but I think it's all good enough to teach the basics.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1urH08QJ4ZgeS2gyAyLDyNv39D0Wi-2Bv/view?usp=sharing

the useful info starts on page 5 I think.

Thanks! I will take a look. Your layout is awesome and seems really advanced for just 1 month of learning. Did you have any previous coding experience?
