at the point of giving up on the lovely scrolling start lights idea.

software works, nice little matrix of LEDs, can show the light sequence, times, scores, scrolling text, works really well

but for the life of me nowhere stocks the yellow displays, oh several claim to but what they actually send is "yellow green", which doesn't help

especially when they also send "yellow green" instead of the actual green...

this is going to end up as a Pi Zero and a HDMI monitor at this rate

you can get white matrix displays, I did wonder on them and the lovely clear Tamiya paints on some clear plastic coloured filters to sit in front of the things

all in the name of SCIENCE!
