While this was seemingly answered in another forum question, the answer given of using an alternative library of... #define HARDWARE_TYPE MD_MAX72XX::FC16_HW was tested and resulted in a worse situation of totally jumbled display with nothing meaningful displayed (no actual letters or numbers). When using MD_MAX72xx.h library the text is displayed but is mirrored e.g. letters are displayed backwards. I'm using the latest downloads of MD_Parola and MD MAX72XX downloads yesterday.
I'm at a total loss as what to do to reverse the letters. Can anyone help please in simple terms, as I'm still very much a novice and on a steep learning curve with Arduino!
Sorry for the delay in replying.
I'm totally unsure where to add the line suggested in the MD_MAX72xx.h file?? (Said I was a novice!!).
The library file is just the basic MD_MAX72xx.h as downloaded. The other files being used are MD_Parola.h and SPI.h
This is a video of what is happening and what needs correcting .. : https://youtu.be/LVuyTmeNFQ8 It will be removed from YT in a few days
I'm unable to paste the files details here as it exceeds the 30000 character limit
