Hi,

I have  4 or 5 of the 8 x 8 led modules with the chip on board that link together, I have searched the internet and downloaded several sketches that don't seem to compile because they are for older versions of the Arduino IDE, if anyone has an up to date scrolling text sketch I would be most grateful.

Thanks In Advance

Have you looked at the Parola library for  multiple MAX7219s?

Hi Crossroads,

Thanks for the heads up, although I have just downloaded the library and tried to run the example, however I get this Error:

fatal error: MD_MAX72xx.h: No such file or directory

Does this mean that I have got to install further libraries ?


Thanks

I've never used it, many others have - have a little patience and see who else chimes in here.
