Hey brad the other day I tried to change the track data from the great race but when I saved it all the code turned into black and when I tried to make it a hex file (quickbuild) It said that there was no asm file

That is really strange.

Can you post the modified code here in the forum, i'll have a look at it.

Hi Brad! :)
I would like to write my name on this 8x8 matrix?
how can i do that?

Thanks!

Have a look at the great race code. In there is the track data (contained within the retlw statements) you can see the track drawn in the retlw statements with the binary 1's and 0's. To write your name, just modify the 1's and 0's.

You can then modify the code a bit to get rid of the game part and it will now just scroll your name instead.

No Problem - start small and then work your way up. That's how I did it!

marC if your still having problems with coding the Assembly code then try this?
The Scroller.asm
(15.51 KiB) Downloaded 343 times
It should scroll 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 Ive commented the section of code that you need to change if you want the matrix to say something else?

The Great Race and Santa’s Scramble schematic was only designed to use one colour. if you want a scrolling Matrix that uses bicolour then you might have to look at making a circuit like the 8x8 Game System.

ok, so the santa's scramble is using the same schematic right?

thanks!
