    I am trying to make a text display.
    I have the matrix set up wired and can make it light up with
    diffrent patterns.


    I am using an arduino uno, I don't know how to make a sketch.
    The one's that I have been able to use are from the available libraries on
    adafruit fastled etc.


    I cant find one that works for a scrolling text, anyone have any experience/advice
    or can point me in a direction


    Thanks

    There are a few members here using the arduino so they may help.

    Ive added the arduino name to the title as this will help attract those in the know.

    there are E1.31 to pixels, approx 240 pixels per arduino controller..
    so if you wanted to be safe you could say 170pixels an 1 universe per arduino controller
    there is another topic by another user here with the code
