Here’s a step by step guide with a video and pictures for assembling your card10
- Switch the card10 on and off
- Navigate the menu

And much more!
Setting your nickname
To set your nickname, create a file called
nickname.txt on your laptop.
Start your card10 in USB storage mode, then copy
nickname.txt onto the card10. Eject the USB device.
Then briefly press the POWER button to exit the storage mode, and then a second time, to enter the menu.
You can scroll up and down using the LEFT and RIGHT buttons.
Now look for an app called ‘nickname.py’, select it by pressing the SELECT button.
If you have successfully uploaded a
nickname.txt file, your nickname will now show up on the display.
You can also upload a
nickname.json file instead, to get some more options.
Have a look at the hatchery for more options of the app.
