How many selectable patterns will it have?

#52 3 years ago

Fade or slow pulse might be cool, light then sequentially, then turn them off sequentially...maybe slow flash them like 3 times, could be cool to have a mode that does all the options in a longer pattern...

#53 3 years ago

I am thinking off for a little bit 5-10 seconds
- then flickering / blink randomly (neon warming up) over 5-10 seconds
- and then go solid but dull and slowly get bright from a soft glow over 20-30 seconds,
- then letters pulse through a few times over 10-15 seconds
- then fade to off over 20-25 seconds
- then 5-10 seconds break
and go through the sequence again, with each sequence being 60 - 90 seconds and gives a variety of effects and simulate a night at the drive-in.

Quoted from stumblor:

Final revision of the board is all ready to go, getting sent out to beta testers in the UK in the next few days. Still some final work to do on the code to introduce another (dip switch selectable) pattern to the s-n-a-c-k-b-a-r lights, most likely all lit up with random letters flickering on/off like a slightly broken neon sign - however I'm up for other suggestions if anyone has any brilliant ideas!

Sure thing, added, and thanks for the support.

Looks awesome!! So glad you swapped out that white PCB

Quoted from ToucanF16:

How many selectable patterns will it have?

Currently each DIP switch bank has 7 selectable colour switches and one 'pattern' switch. That means that for both the neon strip and the snackbar wording, you can separately choose the colour of that strip and one of two patterns. The patterns can run sequentially though - so only limited by the amount of time invested in building them

Also good to point out in that while the neon strip allows you to 'mix' the colour scheme (blue with pink, green with red) the snackbar wording only shows as a single (selectable) colour - I found its looks much better this way. What this means is that we don't actually need as many dedicated DIP switches for that colour selection, as 3 switches could be used in a binary configuration to select the colour, freeing up more switches for pattern selection on the snackbar wording, which is where all the fun patterns will be going anyway.

Great suggestion guys - keep em coming! Starting building more patterns today so will posts some WIP videos of that soon.

You and me both. What was I thinking!? Blue, red and black PCBs all look great but those white ones are RANK.

#56 3 years ago

Add me to the US list please. Looks awesome

#57 3 years ago

Please add me to the US list as well. Thanks.

#58 3 years ago

Rightio then! Got busy today doing the (perhaps final) pattern work for the mod before it gets sent out to beta testers tomorrow. Hopefully incorporating some of the suggestions put forward by people. If you think it looks wack, or have any other helpful suggestions, pipe up. Be good to hear for you.

Apologies for the video not being in situ. You'll have to use your imagination a bit! Top strip is for the neon, bottom strip is for the s-n-a-c-k-b-a-r wording.

The patterns as they currently stand are..

Neon
------
Patterns: Mutually exclusive - ie only one can be selected
Colours: 7 selectable options, mixable.

1 - Water Ripple (selectable)
2 - Linear (selectable)

Snackbar
----------
Patterns: Mutually inclusive - ie all patterns can be either on or off, and will play in sequence
Colours: 7 selectable options, one colour only.

0 - Neon lightup sequence (always on, only plays during bootup)
1 - Letters on, letters off. Now with random letter flickers to simulate broken neons. (selectable)
2 - Flash on, flash off (selectable)
3 - Fast individual letters (selectable)
4 - Slow fade (selectable)

Hope you like it.

Davey

Ah, that explains my confusion. I suppose I should drop off this list, since I’m not on the list for stinks mod yet

Done, and many thanks!

#74 3 years ago

I realised this afternoon that the snackbar lighting can either be setup on the GI line or on the Snackbar insert (where I currently have it, so it turns on when the snackbar opens). To avoid any potential mishaps when plugging into the wrong line, I'm going to add a bridge rectifier to the board so that it can also be powered from the AC GI. Unfortunately that will require another board revision. Bit annoying, but glad I picked it up now rather than later.

We're going to push on with the beta testing in the meantime so that hopefully we will have that finished by the time the new boards arrive.

#75 3 years ago

Stumblor, the mod looks great, can you please add me to the U.S. list. Thanks so much.

So I had one DIP position left over for a final pattern, so this is it. I call it 'Knight Rider' - If you're about as old as I am, you'll know why!

(starts after a second or two)

#86 3 years ago

Thumbs up for Knight Rider mode!
