Could you please include the Kitronic Arcade in the board js

I use PyBadges in my classroom, along with the at first sight totally similar Kitronik Arcade. I was actually thinking these Microsoft MakeCode gadgets were all the same hardware, but apparently they aren't. Differences are mostly pin-out differences.
The bugger thing is that we can't compile in the Arduino IDE for the Kitronik ones as we can for the PyBadges. Would be great if you could contact these Brits and work something out together so the Kitronik Arcada might be added to your SAMD51 board definitions.

Instead of making a board definition, I figured out how to program it using the board definition for the PyBadge M4 Express. Use these pin definitions:
Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
#include <Adafruit_GFX.h>    // Core graphics library
#include <Adafruit_ST7735.h> // Hardware-specific library for ST7735
#define D_UP          10
#define D_DOWN        11
#define D_LEFT        12
#define D_RIGHT       0
#define BUTTON_A      13
#define BUTTON_B      6
#define BUZZER        14
#define RUMBLE        15
#define TFT_CS        16
#define TFT_RST       18
#define TFT_DC        17
#define TFT_BACKLIGHT 19
#define TFT_MOSI      46
#define TFT_SCLK      47
Adafruit_ST7735 tft = Adafruit_ST7735(TFT_CS, TFT_DC, TFT_MOSI, TFT_SCLK, TFT_RST);
