3.  Open Documents>Arduino>Libraries and place this ‘Gamer’ folder into the ‘libraries’ folder. You place it here as this is how the library gets “seen” by Arduino.

 

4.  Now open up Arduino. Go to File>Examples>Gamer. If you can see the code examples here, that means you have downloaded the Gamer Library successfully!
