Hello, and welcome. This is my place to publish some notes I took while messing around with AVR microcontrollers, Arduino, and electronics in general.

    Hi Kieran

    I am more than happy to post the schematic. I am away from home for a couple of days though, so please bear with me. In the meantime you may be able to figure it our yourself. It’s a fairly common MAX72xx setup like, e.g. this one here http://playground.arduino.cc//Main/MAX72XXHardware. I used DATA_PIN = 12, CLK_PIN = 11, and CS_PIN = 10. There are also two potentiometers connected to analog pins 0 and 1. That’s pretty much it.

    Hi Kieran,

    I just double checked the 8×8 matrix pong game. There really isn’t more to it than what you can find on the Arduino site at http://playground.arduino.cc//Main/MAX72XXHardware. For the resistor “RSet” I used 33K ohm. How to connect a potentiometer is explained at http://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/Potentiometer. If you are still stuck, please drop a note.
