Hello everyone, ive been following the adventures of Jakesoft and the inexpensive lightsaber for a year now, and have also been attempting to construct my own based on this forum. I am currently still trying to get the code sorted out but its working to some degree. I am an artist by trade and its been quite a challenge to teach myself how to code, even with the supposed simplicity of the arduino language.
Hello everyone, ive been following the adventures of Jakesoft and the inexpensive lightsaber for a year now, and have also been attempting to construct my own based on this forum. I am generally just a lurker and dont usually participate in the conversation, but this forum is very educational for me, and I wanted to thank everybody for their input....
I came across this intersting variant of the WT588D-16p while sourcing more stable and direct suppies for my boards:The details page link was broken so dont know mem size but I did send a query about it and now waiting for the reply.I've not seen a match from any other vendor so it must be manufacturers own take on it.I like the pin labelling, would make them easy to work with for the absolute novice and would be handy for prototyping purposes. However, not sure why it deserves an $11 price tag though.

Selling it, Bill? Looks like a how-to for an end user.
Im having issues with controlling the playback of sounds on the WT588D. Is there a code solution that would allow a sound to play and keep playing as long as a button was HIGH but stopped that sound as soon as the button went LOW? (or vise versa). I guess what i really need to know is how to trigger a sound from outside the main loop.currently my AUX button (the one for the 'lockup') constantly restarts the sound over and over.im running the WT in one-line serial mode. Do i need to have the WTs BUSY pin wired to make that work?Anybody have suggestions?
Hey Jakesoft, have you ever tried using buckpucks with an arduino for your lightsaber? I am thinking about going to the 7.4V battery so I can power the DFPlayer and didn't want to fry my leds
I have a 700 ma buckpuck that I am going to test this weekend. it has a pin for control, which I believe goes to the arduino pin so it's a regulator and fet....I think....
