Super Mario Maker for 3DS Review

Super Mario Maker for 3DS Review

Just like in the amazing Wii U version, the easy-to-use tools of Super Mario Maker for 3DS empower you to create vibrant, challenging or creative levels using the look and feel of several generations of 2D Super Mario games with relative ease, except now you can do it on the go! And the way it quickly switches between create and play is easily the best part of the experience. But as feature-rich as the 3DS port is, it has some crippling shortcomings when it comes to sharing the stages you make with it and playing other people’s creations. With the exception of the Mystery Mushroom, a cute but needless costume that let you dress up 8-bit Mario as other sprite-based video game characters, nearly every piece of Super Mario Maker’s elegant creation toolset is crammed into the 3DS version. Due to the limitations of the 3DS, it can’t handle as many items as the more powerful Wii U version, but you’re looking at over 60 unique tools you can use to build whatever you want in Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, or New Super Mario Bros. The levels I made were never hindered by the new asset cap, and I always had enough room to build the stages I wanted to make. Continue reading…

VNC: Remote access a Raspberry Pi

VNC: Remote access a Raspberry Pi

VNC (Virtual Network Computing) is a great technology included with Raspbian. With this tech, you can remotely control your Raspberry Pi from another computer, such as a PC or Mac, or even another Raspberry Pi board. Sometimes it’s not convenient to work directly on a Raspberry Pi. This can be because it’s not easy to access, or because your keyboard and monitor are being used on your main computer. Using remote networking, you can open the Raspbian desktop interface from your Raspberry Pi inside a window on your computer. After you have set up the software, apps on your smartphone or tablet can be used to control aRaspberry Pi. Set up VNC Remote Networking on your Raspberry Pi By default, VNC Server from RealVNC gives you direct control over your Raspberry Pi, just as though you were sitting in front of it. This is great for controlling lightweight Raspbian projects, such as IoT builds. As we’ll see in the steps, Raspbian Jessie with PIXEL includes Server by default. However, you will need to enable it yourself. From then on, Server will be loaded every time you switch on your Raspberry Pi. Step 1. Enable VNC Start with a fresh build of Raspbian Jessie with PIXEL. Choose Menu > Preferences > Raspberry Pi Configuration. Click on Interfaces and set VNC to Enabled. Click OK. Step 2. Network You’ll need to know which IP Address your Raspberry Pi is using to connect to it remotely. Open a Terminal window and enter ifconfig. Check for the four numbers next to “inet addr”. They’ll be under eth0 if you’re connected using an internet cable. Or wlan0 if you have connected to a wireless network. It’ll look like this: 192.168.0.5. Step 3. Download VNC Viewer Download and install  Viewer on your computer from RealVNC. Open the app and enter the IP Address from the previous step into the VNC Server field. Ensure Encryption is set to “Let VNC Server choose” and click Connect. OK. The first time you connect it will display a “VNC Server not recognized” alert. Click Continue. Step 4. Desktop window Enter Pi into the Username field, and “raspberry” (or your Raspbian password) in the Password field. Click The Raspbian PIXEL interface will appear inside a window on your computer. You can click on the Menu, open programs and run Terminal commands on your Raspberry Pi.
