For my Birthday my wife bought me
a Peggy 2
kit, and I finally got around to adding the 625 10mm green LEDs. Some of the
example programs are pretty neat but I wanted to make a side scroller with
a nice font ready for halloween.
I decided on the Liberation Sans Narrow font, drew up a string of characters in
The Gimp, converted it to have only 4 levels, then used a quick perl script to
convert the image into program data for the scroller. I'm pretty happy with
how it turned out. The scroller, image, and script are available here.
