This is also interestinghttps://github.com/Bodmer/TFT_eSPI/issues/117
Thanks. I hope you had fun reading it. Did you test it?
Thank you. Good question, I preferred a fun title but you are right, it may be confusing...
I never used a parallel screen. You need to test it before trying this instructables. Once you succeed in having the display work correctly, just try my sketch.
Thanks, it's encouraging

Good, keep me updated!Waiting forward to seeing your clock...
OK, after a closer look, the version of the code I published is not the one with the RTC. I have it though, but I don't know how to publish it. I don't know how to change the content of the Instructables... I add them to this reply, hope you can download them.
It seems I did it right: can you see the step 5?
Hi DorianoI had a closer look at the source code and it seems ready for the use of a DS3231 RTC. You need to install the MD-DS3231 library (https://github.com/MajicDesigns/MD_DS3231) and plug your RTC as an I2C module (SDA on A4 and SCL on A5) and it should be OK. The RTC sets the correct time every 30 minutes.Of course you'll have to set the RTC to the correct time first. I'm not sure this library can do it, but you can do this for example https://www.instructables.com/Simple-Guide-to-Setting-Time-on-a-DS3231DS3107DS13/ (or google arduino ds3231 set time)If it works (or not) please tell me. I'd like also to have some photos of your infinite clock...
Good, I'm glad to know that. The new problem you have is quite normal, as the internal "clock" of the arduino is not really accurate. To solve this, there are 2 solutions.The easy one is to set the time as explained at the beginning of step 4 when you think it is required.The less easy one is to add another module: a Real Time Clock (RTC). I recommand a DS3231 module which is very accurate. I think I have done a version of the code that uses such a RTC module. I have to look for it. If I can find it, I'll update the Instructables.
Sorry, no idea.
You should test it with a simple dedicated sketch. Try this one and check if your touchscreen works : https://github.com/Bodmer/TFT_eSPI/tree/master/examples/Test%20and%20diagnostics/Test_Touch_Controller
The file must be xxx.kwl (not a .txt file). When opening Bluetooth Electronics, be sure that this file is in your smartphone.Click on the disk icon (upper left, 3rd icon) , then 'load panels' and choose your file in the list
First you should verify if the BT module can speak with the phone (it may be a connexion problem). Install on your phone the app "Serial Bluetooth Terminal" from the Google Play Store. Then try this: https://www.instructables.com/Setting-Up-Bluetooth-HC-05-With-Arduino/Be careful that he uses different pins to connect the BT module: first uses his, then if it works try with mine (and connect accordingly)
Hi Doriano, sorry to ear about that. Did you successfully pair the phone and the BT module?Actually, I made this many years ago... it may be difficult to help
Yes, a few years ago actually. I have to dive into the code... Can you add a few Serial.prints to spy the bluetooth communication, in order to focus on wherez the error is located?BTW, do you have a good knowledge of Arduino programming?
