I have a UNO R2 board, and using IDE 1.0.
I tried to load this from the wiki page for the TFT shield (v1.0) i bought at radio shack
It will not save, I get a “file corrupted” error.
I was able to get the touch screen code demo to work, but I had to re-name the project folder ( replaced the -'s with _'s to make the IDE happy) and renamed the sketch from xxx.pde to xxx.ino. I dont know if this is the correct way of doing it, or if I should delete all those files and wait till I can download the files from the above link. In any case the resistive touch screen code seems to work, I can open the com port and get values reported back when i touch the screen.
But when I try to load any of the TFT code examples, the code compiles and loads ok, but the TFT is dead, open the com port and get:
hardware not recognised 202 ( Going off memory on this one so don’t flame me, I’m sure I got it wrong)
So, If I had to guess, Its due to the fact that I loaded the wrong libraries and getting the file linked above should fix the issue? I hope so.
I was hoping that since this was a retail item at a national store that there would be little fuss in getting it up and running .
