A New Library for Meggy Jr RGB

I planed to create a game as a gift and use the really great Meggy Jr RGB platform for it. See the picture above, it’s a great game machine powered by the ATmega328P (buy it here). You can use the Arduino IDE to program it.

After assembling the device, I played a little bit around with the provided library — but was a bit disappointed by the library. This is a game device after all, but the library lack in my opinion some important things a game library need.

So I wrote a new library from scratch, using the provided schema and documentation (you can see the printed out schema in the background of the picture). Sometimes its better to start from scratch and learn from the mistakes of other libraries.

Today I release the first version of the library at GitHub here: https://github.com/LuckyResistor/LRMeggyJr. It has a proper API documentation and a few examples. I release this early, but hope to improve the documentation and add examples while I develop the actual game.
