Ok, I have been reading over this tread for the last hour+ becase I'm interested in programing an ATiniy85 with the Arduino IDE.
I'm still VERY NEW to programing and don't understand how to program AVRs outside Arduino yet (if ever it so complicated).
I built a breadboard Arduino equivalent with an ATMega168 and loaded the Arduino Boot-loader.
I have created a simple program that fades an RGB Led though all the rainbow colors working on my breadboard Arduino,
but have tryed in vain for the past week to get the same results working on an ATtiny85...
Then I found this thread and my hopes have been revived that it may still be possible.
I upgraded to Arduino 018 (Mac Version), but I can't find any info in 018 on support for any of the ATtiny chips talked about in this thread... Help?
I'm trying to build a very small night light for my wife for Valentines day and the ATmega168 is too large. The 8pin ATtiny85 is the perfect size.
I have a USBtinyISP programer and an FT232RL USB to Serial breakout board that I got From SparkFun.
Thanks in advance for any help.
