February 11, 2008 | 10:40 pm

Hi

I am planning to use an LCD screen ( LED Screen) with the make
controller .

I would like to use Max to program the LCD screen

How can I program the LCD screen???

This is the one that i would like to use

LCD-00461:

any help is appreciated!

Thanks,

before you control it with jitter you have to get it to talk with your
computer.
which it does with a serial cable. if your on mac or a laptop you will
probably need a usb2serail adaptor.
you can find more info (everything actually) in the supplied data sheet.

next you will send the lcd module messages using max’s [serial] object.
from quick glance at the mentioned data sheet you can only send ASCII
messages. no graphics. other then dingbats.

this unit talkes directly to the pc, you don’t need the make controller. it
will just make things complicated

have fun

Thank you that is helpful.
great that I do not need anything else than a computer!

I took a quick look to the serial patch help and I do not understand
anything!

where in the patch should i write the characters or letters that I want to
display.

Thanks in advance,

Daniela
