Announcing PatternPaint 2.0
We're proud to announce a new version of PatternPaint:
Version 2.0(.3) includes support for programming BlinkyTiles, an output preview window, and a new 'frame-based' mode for animating 2d LED arrays. It also includes a welcome screen to get started, and example patterns for each device type. Please try it out and let us know what you think!
Now that this release is stable, the next push we are making is to document its usage.
I am unable to restore the original firmware (the rainbow pattern) with 2.0.3. If I use the "restore firmware" it immediatly reuploads the selected pattern, rendering the restored firmware useless. Please please fix this.
Hmm- after restoring the firmware, it should show a preview of the selected pattern on the tape, but it shouldn't actually upload it to the tape. If you close PatternPaint and wait ˜8 seconds, the tape should start playing the rainbow pattern again.
