    Geek Spinner

    I successfully made the Rev 0.1 version of this spinner and was able to get it working after applying the code changes described in the comments for the Rev 0.1 Instructable.I then bought the Rev 1.0 board and parts. After loading the SMD_spinner_THT_R2 code, the spinner is not working.When I turn on the power, D3 through D7 flash on then D0 and D1 stay on dimly. The tactile switch does not appear to do anything.Any help would be appreciated.

    Excellent! After downloading ATTiny core from the URL you provided, the Pinmapping option became available. After selecting Counter Clockwise and reloading the code, the spinner now works as expected. Thank you for your help!

    The spinner works after two changes:First, I modified the code:int LEDS[] = {10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 3, 4};byte ledPin = 0; byte magPin = 0; // Hall effect sensor, byte magPullUp = 0; // Pin A0 / D0byte touchPin = 1; // Push button A1 / D1However, the words and images did not form correctly. For example "World" was un-readable.The second change is to adjust the gap between the magnet and the magnetic switch by slightly bending the sensor away from the magnet until the images form correctly.This is an excellent project. Thank you.byte touchPullUp = 1;
