Currently working on my 3.2" TFT display (with SSD1289 controller) for my aquarium project.
Fortunately I got a second Mega 2560 for my paludarium tank the other day so I've been able to fiddle around on that and not have the LEDs on my tank flash every time I re-upload a program.
It has been a very steep learning curve for me but I'm starting to get the gist of it. The only software I've been able to fully compile and work is Henning Karlsens UTFT program and in that package the one that works the best that I've played around with and mostly figured out is the rotate bitmap example.
I managed to get my own pictures on it, as well as stop rotation, change size, and position of the picture. One thing I can't figure out is these annoying lines at the bottom right of each picture, assuming all the letters are their own little picture.
