Thanks for the game design works brilliantly! I converted the screen over to ic2 as you had the strangest LCD screen I've seen. I also added an additional 2 targets via a Mega board rather than uno. I'm working on a few extra game types that would use more than one LED to indicate a friend or enemy, I have just seen that you planned to add a few more LEDs to the wireless version to indicate connectivity and data transmission. How are you doing on the wireless project??
Its a little confusing the instructions not giving me much to go on which model is your lcd?
Hi, no its a Serial LCD goggle on it, and you will find on eBay.
Check the instruction for that serial lcd on how to print text, there is different ways for different models. I used a china serial lcd.
Hi, I have also made the project, thanks for the design is the LCD you used IC2? I cant find an LCD that will operate with just 3 wires. I can find IC2 LCDs that require 4 wires is this what you have used?Thanks again
Thanks for the quick reply Its a serial lcd
Love this project brought all the parts but have a problem with the display.Looking through the article you do mention may need to change the code. not sure what I need to do.The game is working, the sensors are working, i just have lots of special characters making it hard to read the lcd.Can you help?
Hi is it an Serial Lcd or an normal Lcd ?
Arduino Shooting Target Game
Hellow i followed this tutorial . At the moment i only have conectedArduino + 16x2 Generic LCD + Potencimeter for lcd +switch control for game modesI have conected GND to VDD and K conected 5V+ to VSS and A wire from pin Digital TX->1 to RW of lcdmy potenciometer conected to lcd The switch button for game modes is propperly conected as u instructed in diagram Uploaded your code..NOTHING IS SHOWING ON SCREEN( im trying this tutorial a step by step...cause i see ur diagram is off -- you dont have potenciometer for screen ... you dont have lcd conected in both sides of + and - only in VSS and VDD ) IM AM VERY NEW ... so excuse me
This is my sketch ... i'm only getting the colored pixels from putting the potenciometer at full
can u link me to buy ebay one ? or somewhere does not matter if china cheap ones...if i manage to get the game working i will buy the best one :) GREAT PROJECT ..really....JUST EPIC
Hi, you need a Serial Lcd. A normal LCD don't work becouse they can't handle serial comunication. An Serial lcd has an extra chip on them so they can work with serial comunication.
On the sketch i used an normal lcd becouse i didn't find any serial lcd in the software. The serial lcd has built in pot for the display and only have 4 connections. (5v gnd rx tx)
