    I believe the Switch itself uses Type C, though I'm sure you can find an adapter anyway.
    Hmm, USB-type C to female USB... That might actually be pretty hard to find.

    Yes, I looked everywhere in my house and in nearby stores. Of course you can buy it online, you can buy anything online...

    smilebasic hardware 3 is coming and it's switch confirmed? or is the pascom mini hardware 3?
    Neither. HARDWARE 3 is Wii U. Switch would probably be HARDWARE 4.
    Sorry about replying late but Wii U is actually HARDWARE 2

    Woops, sorry! I forgot counting in programming starts at 0 when writing that. After some searching, I couldn't find anything stating that the Pasocom Mini even HAS a return number for HARDWARE. Someone who owns a Pasocom Mini will have to answer that... My guess is no.

Programming Strength Drawing I like to draw! Hobbies Here's a better look at the main menu until we have proper scans of the article: Posted
  • #150 ✎ 930 Y_ack I spot * TOPMENU text * the petitdeveloper shmup example icon * the petitdeveloper sokoban/push puzzle example icon * generic paint tool icon that feels familiar * Smileboom logo icon * Kawa no Kuma-san icon * Solid Gunner icon it really didn't matter and the whole post was only meaningful for a day anyway but gosh fine * Calculator icon right-hand side: * options * blue... not sure. could be a 'folder' or a 'photo' on there "Create New [project]" * pushpuzzle appears to be 'pinned' * guessing but probably - upload projects to cloud - download project - write programs Edit: It's interesting, of course, but they're obviously just placeholders. Also: empty slots for more icons, what looks like a 'next page' type button, and a cursor. It could simply be a mistake from making the mockup, but... you'd think using the joycons wouldn't include the appearance of a cursor. One of the photos from the famitsu page also showed a keyboard and a mouse being used in their (probably fake) Switch setup, which I thought was interesting. Posted Edited by Y_ack

  • #152 ✎ 98 niconii Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies Expert Programmer Programming no longer gives me any trouble. Come to me for help, if you like! Programming Strength Drawing I like to draw! Hobbies No, I'm sure any program that doesn't have an icon (like 3DS games, if compatible) would probably get some placeholder icon, like the first letter of the program name or something. Otherwise, you'd have to make an icon for every single throwaway program you make. Still, it's too early to say anything about compatibility. The three vertical screenshots are of the editor, what looks like a file browser (with a GRP file shown at the top), and the top menu in a vertical orientation. It may have a 3DS mode, but I don't think that's what we're looking at in these screenshots. That said, it's worth noting that it's called Petitcom 4 this time, whereas the 3DS and Wii U versions were Petitcom 3 and Petitcom BIG. The jump between Petitcom 2 on the DSi ("Petit Computer" in the West) and Petitcom 3 was a big one, changing a ton of things and losing compatibility. It might not be the case this time, since Petitcom 2 was also a very limited language in comparison, but Kobayashi has tweeted before wondering whether he'd want to maintain compatibility or not, since the Switch has only one screen, and a capacitive touch screen that can't use normal styluses.

    Except not really, as: The Switch doesn't support multiple displays. You either use the Switch docked and view the game from the TV, or undocked and view from the console itself. It's not like the Wii U, which has two separate screens. It's most likely going to work by showing both screens on the Switch.

    Well that's a relief. It seems a little odd though that Nintendo might not use two screens instead.

  • #156 ✎ 930 Y_ack any suspicion of "3DS mode" should be regarded as speculation on potential backward compatibility at this point. The comment I made earlier about "3DS screen mode" was a misinterpretation of the vertical screen layouts in the gallery menu views. Posted

    It's possible. The Pasocom Mini supports nested folders.

    ... Edit: It's interesting, of course, but they're obviously just placeholders. Also: empty slots for more icons, what looks like a 'next page' type button, and a cursor.

    I'm guessing that the cursor is there to let you use the menu with just the joy-cons. Since with the switch, you're not guaranteed to have access to the touch screen at all times.

    I do not want to believe that the menu is not navigable with only directional input and selection. Though, now that I think about it, SmileBASIC 3's main screen was bad that way too, with some limited access provided by A/B/Y or something. Hm.
