@Edge554 modifying the bootloader would be pretty tricky and not something that you could do from within the makecode editor. The bootloader itself is written in C/C++ and requires some knowledge about programming microcontrollers

So in theory the bootloader would need to be updated to reference the sd card instead of the spi flash(or whatever the current built in storage is)?

I have a pybadge and a sd card feather. It would be pretty amazing to be able to utilize the sd card storage for arcade. I’m assuming it would be a lot of work to convert the raspberry pi interface to other devices, but what about modifying the storage/boot device?

The raspberry pi interface is actually just a game written in arcade:

You’d have to change the bootloader to be able to read/write games from the sdcard or flash

You need to use javascript to be able to put a loop/event like a button pressed to be a code block that is not like an on-start block.

I think the problem was solved over 4 months ago…

@peli Do you happen to know when the SD card extension will be ready for use?

Thanks @Brohann but I need something that will increase the storage on my meowbit, because there is only enough storage for a really small game.

What? RASPBERRY PI?! Humans, I tell you. What a messed up name. So, uh, what is “raspberry pie- I mean, pi”?
