GameOfLife Update

image

GameOfLife is a project we purchased from Adafruit (http://www.adafruit.com/products/89).  We dearly love this project and have had a large array working for many years.  If you’ve never seen this, the boards interlock and communicate.  After building the array it became evident that there was a flaw in the code.  The panels could become locked into repeating patterns.

I modified the code to detect repeating patterns and issue a reset.  Theoretically, only one 1.4 update chip is required per array.  No more locking array.

We sell the chip preprogrammed and assume you already have an array.  Simply pop out a 1.3 chip and replace with our 1.4
