Tutorial 4 help with Interfacing buttons

Post by Fluroblue » Sun May 15, 2011 2:27 pm

im adding the buttons to the knightrider tutorial and it seems to just be doing the back and forth thing instead of moving with the buttons, anyone know what this could mean?

Hi Fluroblue,

Have you made sure that you are using the code from tutorial 4 and have the buttons connected to PORTA.0 and POARTA.1?
