    Hello all!
    I purchased one each of the ForkInEye EsPixelStick and Renard Plus EspWifi Pixel Controller, and I'm completely lost... which is not a good feeling [​IMG]
    My problem is that I have zero experience with Arduino programming... I don't know what 'flashing' or a 'sketch' is or how to use them, I have followed the directions on both product sites numerous times, but I just have no clue what I'm doing.
    I have both products built and ready to go, I have the USB to TTL board and drivers installed. I have the Arduino software installed and the additional Board environment installed.
    Now, this is where I get lost... I don't know what to do next or how to use the the programming utility. I tried to do the upload function, but get errors that files are missing.
    Anyone have a dummy step-by-step tutorial by chance?

    Thanks in advance!
    super frustrated guy

    This video may help you out, he covers flashing the PixelStick with the Java program and compiling the source code manually via the Arduino IDE.
