#twatch network LCD backpack / Re: Custom character sets

Here are a couple of photos of my twatch. It's showing the time for 15 seconds, then 5 seconds of either today's date + weather, or 5 seconds of the weather forecast for the next few days.

From the python script posted earlier.

Any questions or suggested improvements are welcome, thanks again for setting up this project. It's a lot of fun.
#twatch network LCD backpack / Re: Custom character sets
Thanks for all the help as well as the great project. I've had a lot of fun with this.

I've tried to send the command string:
0xFE 0x4E 0x01 0x00 0x01 0x02 0x03 0x04 0x05 0x06 0x07

Which should make a pattern whenever the ascii character 1 is written. The twatch accepts this command properly, and the C code seems to do the right thing, but all I can get is blank characters from this.

I'll post some photos of my twatch with the outputs. It makes a way cool clock, which alternately displays weather info.

Thanks again, please let me know what you think.

Best, Tom
#twatch network LCD backpack / Custom character sets

I was wondering if anyone could get the custom character support to work. I've tried numerous things, but although the bytes I sent seem to be handled by the firmware, I don't actually successfully change the character generator.

I have some sample python code which tries. It also has the ability to write text to the twatch, and control it as a clock with weather report (via Google). I also built a nice wooden frame. If anyone's interested in the code I'll be happy to share it.

Best, Tom
