display cmoving image on sparkfun matrix


ive got a matrix back pack and can now display any image i like but now im stuck, i would like help with the code so i can display a scrolling text or something similar.

Any help appreciated



I wrote some scrolling message code that I’m happy with.
I’d be glad to post it (somehow) if your interested.

It currently uses an external EEPROM to store the characters (about 100) and messages, but it could be adapted for use without the EEPROM. (The EEPROM is loaded with a separate sketch.)

The character font is 5x7 and it’s designed to run on an 8xn matrix (no backpack). However, it’s pretty modular, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to adapt.

If this might be worthwhile, let me know and I’ll post it. (Not sure if it’s best to post it here or somewhere else.) Also let me know if your not interested in the EEPROM idea and I’ll strip that out of the example.

(The scrolling looks like this - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YL1keLtU9Tk)
