Hi Jean-Marc,

I've had a bit of time to play with it actually, I got mine a week ago or

A couple tips:
- the eclipse IDE was much easier to get working with a tutorial than the
other IDE.  It does install a lot of debuggers that are useless to a
launchpad user though.
- write down the exact model numbers of the 2 chips you have.  I think the
one in the board already is the MSP430g220x or something like that?  You'll
need this number to get the right set of examples from the website and when
setting up your eclipse project.

I wrote a teeny-tiny game for mine... "who can press the button 10 times
faster -> red or blue".  The code was a cut and paste hackery I did just for
kicks but if you want I could share the project when I'm home tonight.

My next plan I think is to interface it with an original NES controller I
have laying around.  I never knew the NES controllers were just a shift
register and that's it, very simple!
