Ok did a couple more test. Learned the hard way about the swap.. Basically on the FT800 you have to swap out the new screen for the old one. So if you plan to update just a portion… you might have to rewrite the entire screen. Well this is what it seems like right now. Perhaps im doing it wrong.

Im doing this from scratch and without using any functions from the FTDI code, only the definitions.

But so far its pretty good i guess… now to play with TOUCH and actual IMAGES!

Code for above (well MAIN code)

int main ( void )

 FT800_STR(10,10,0xFFFFFF,31,"Jason Lopez");
 FT800_STR(10,86,0x0000FF,22,"XMOS startKIT 1V2");
 FT800_STR(10,104,0xFF0000,22,"FT800Q Display IC");

 return 0;
