2x16 lcd animation problem.

Hello everyone, I have a problem. I want to make some animations with custom chars, but in my animation I can't use over 7 chars it seems. Why's that?

Specifically what is your problem.

  • Are you having trouble with the eighth character?
  • Are you wondering why there is a limit to the number of characters?


Hi, ya,

The chip only hold 8 different Characters in its RAM. You say more than 7? Use the index 0..7 that makes 8 characters!


So it's not possible to create more than 8 chars?!

That is correct.
