16x32 RGB Matrix Backpack modify font

Post by 3turtles1 » Wed Sep 25, 2013 8:25 am

Hello I have 16x32 RGB Matrix panel and would like to edit the numbers in the font. I have found that the file glcdfont.c has controls the font, so I downloaded a program that allows you to create fonts and export the code.

I replaced the lines of code that control the numbers with

0xFF, 0x81, 0x81, 0xFF, 0x00, // Code for char 0
0x82, 0xFF, 0x80, 0x00, 0x00, // Code for char 1
0xE3, 0x91, 0x89, 0x87, 0x00, // Code for char 2
0x99, 0x99, 0x99, 0xFF, 0x00, // Code for char 3
0x0F, 0x08, 0x08, 0xFF, 0x00, // Code for char 4
0x8F, 0x89, 0x89, 0xF9, 0x00, // Code for char 5
0xFF, 0x91, 0x91, 0xF1, 0x00, // Code for char 6
0x01, 0x01, 0xFD, 0x03, 0x00, // Code for char 7
0xFF, 0x99, 0x99, 0xFF, 0x00, // Code for char 8
0x8F, 0x89, 0x89, 0xFF, 0x00, // Code for char 9

however the font on the board has not changed, I have checked every character that it displays incase I changed the wrong characters however none have changed.

Any help on how to alter the font would be great, thank you.

Since I don't have any experience with this, I tried searching for a solution to your issue but had little success. You can try searching "RGB matrix edit font" and see the results for yourself.

Here is a piece of software that looks interesting, http://www.nicolaudie.com/online_manual ... gY7LoL.htm

Does no one know how to do this or did I incorrectly post this and people are giving me a cold shoulder?

Any advice is appreciated.

No, no one is giving you the cold shoulder. Chances are that no one has had a problem like this.

Have you tried searching Google? You just have to try and solve your own problem. Once you finally get it, you can post up the solution somewhere and help hundreds of people.
