Good Morning Tom
What you said makes sence to me. The code I offered in this Fourm was taken from someone elses code. I'd have to check my files to find out who, but I don't think it's important in this case. Oh I found the website:http://oomlout.com/a/products/ardx/circ-05/
Check out the site and copy the code to study.
The code I got, I changed a few lines to make the 74hc595 turn on the four (4) transistors needed for this 4x4x4 Cube.
Have you look at the code??
Everyones input will be helpfull to me for a better understanding of C and C++.
I'm hoping to use Hippynerds Data to set different patterns, but havent got that far yet. I just keep reading my and others code to see whats been done, Program wise, for the Cube.
As mentioned before, I only have progremmed in Basic many many years ago, and didn't have a need to learn C or C++ until I bought an Arduino Uno two years ago.
But again Tom, Thanks for your input and hope to hear from you again.
