Re: Guess what my latest project is...

Are those squares on the top board going to be LEDs? Is it a music visualizer?

Re: 8 Digit LED Bubble Display Clock

Any chance we can check out your code :) Ugh... hoping you wouldn't say that. It is a little messy. Good luck trying to figure it out, I may try to clean it up a bit later, but tell me if you need any help with it right now. My whole folder (Visual Micro made a few files.) (The folder goes in your ...

Re: 8 Digit LED Bubble Display Clock

Have you ran it for a few days to see how accurately it keeps time? If you are using an RTC I am guessing it would be pretty spot on. Yup, its been running for at least a week now and isn't a minute off. I have another clock with the same type of RTC in it that is 6-7 minutes off, but it has been r...

Re: 8 Digit LED Bubble Display Clock

Okay, it is about time I started on the reply. Feel free to make a page about the clock, just tell me if you need me to take more pictures or something. The clock's hardware is currently 100% built and most of the coding is done. The code, however, does have a bug which makes the alarm not work all ...

8 Digit LED Bubble Display Clock

So, I am back (sort of.) (This is an Arduino project) I needed a clock for my room and I had already bought a few of these bubble displays from ebay since they looked pretty cool. I had already made a circuit board with shift registers connected to the display to test them out, so I decided to finis...

Re: I've been super busy lately!

Visual Studio is pretty cool, I've started making a game with it (XNA, C#). I have been making it as a computer game, but eventually I may look into what other devices i could port it to. Also, I've been making a clock with a speech chip (the one Chuck talked about here ). I do not like the quality ...

Re: LOL Shield

That looks overly complicated and that specific code eems to have limited uses. If you wanted, I could probably write a simple code for displaying pictures or data. That is what I did for a Lights Out game I am working on. However, I would need to know what pins of the Arduino are controlling what o...

Re: RPG game + LED pixel game system hardware

I have made a simple code to test the matrix with the Arduino, but it is too slow (the LEDs are flickering). I have used digitalWrite functions, so that may be why. However, I have grown tired of trying to get this game working on the Arduino and have always wanted to get into using the more technic...

Re: What has everyone been up to?

I have pretty much put it on hold, but all the hardware is put together and the basics of the game are already programmed on it. I probably should finish it up soon though.

Re: What has everyone been up to?

I've been working awhile, but still have been working on projects. Currently I am working on: Color-Octal clock A lighting/color base for a glass figurine A pong/game system with 4 potentiometers and an 8x8 LED screen 3x3x3 RGB LED cube I should have the lighting base for the glass thing finished so...

Re: RPG game + LED pixel game system hardware

Thanks a lot for the post Brad! Just got time to look at it, and apparently I put all the pins on the wrong side (no wonder it didn't work!) Anyway, I'll continue to look into it in my spare time, although I have some other projects I need to get finished soon.

Re: RPG game + LED pixel game system hardware

I finally got around to trying to get the display running but did not have any luck... If anyone wants to look at the code and tell me what I did wrong, that would be great (note: I have made so all 3 colors and both the color0 and color1 display the same data just to test to see if the matrix works...

Re: RPG game + LED pixel game system hardware

Hmm, you could probably PWM the different colors if you hook each color data to a shift register (ideally in parallel, and 2 data outs would be hooked up to each shift register) and then PWM pins to the enable output of each shift registers. It would be kind of hardware wasteful since it would be us...

Re: RPG game + LED pixel game system hardware

Sounds great, I'll have to hook it up soon to test it out (some projects are taking priority over this, mostly those needing to be finished before Christmas.)
