Today went really well, the project is almost finished!

To recap the problems we had yesterday:

  • The PORTC issue was the JTAG interface messing around, disabling the JTAGEN fuse solved that problem

  • The LCD-display had the wrong contrast wired - the example schematic was interpreted to specify 4V on Vo, while infact it wanted a voltage drop of 4V from Vdd. Wiring 1V to it solved everything nicely.

After debugging some minor bugs, adding game logic and simple inputs everything seems to work good enough to assemble to a PCB. Stay tuned!
