Hello, I'm a total newbie to this site as well as programming in general. There is definitely a lot of useful info on here. I've checked out some of the information regarding timers involving LEDs, but I haven't found anything that answered what I'm looking to do. I recently bought a table hockey game, and I want to simulate what happens at an actual hockey game.
Would it be easier to use a breadboard or just the Arduino for this project? I apologize for not being very knowledgeable in this subject matter. In terms of lights, I only plan on using one green LED and one red LED for this project. Basically, I want to have a green LED be off for 180 seconds and then turn on for 5 seconds to simulate the end of a period, and then turn off. I'd plan on pressing reset at the end of the period to start the next period. When a goal is scored, how could I press a button on the breadboard to make the red LED turn on for 5 seconds and then turn back off, and not interrupt the 180 second timer for the green LED? Any help for developing this code would be greatly appreciated, and I apologize if I have offended anyone with this post for my lack of experience.
