Light Appliance

Post by KeithGilman » Tue Sep 30, 2014 8:45 pm

I have built this project - works great! I also incorporated the Life game from the previous article on this particular display. I can provide the updated files if anyone is interested. I did notice, at least on my board, that after a number of generations my Life pattern would repeat on a cycle more that what the code detects. I added a MaximumGenerations parameter so it will force a reset after so many generations.

Two more features I want to add to the Life game are 1) be able to configure the maximum number of generations with the remote and 2) when the code detects a repeating pattern, display the number of generations it took to get there for a few seconds before resetting.

Hi Keith,

I've also built the light appliance, and would be interested in your updated files. I quite fancy adding a game of Life on there.
Many thanks.

Andy
