    Hi everyone,

    I have my setup running fine right now. Some little things i want to optimize but actual i am happy.

    Now i want to create some simple effects for me, but i am getting not really forward.
    Read already all the wiki topics, and tried to adept some existing effects, but didnt get it done.

    Are there any explanation from scratch how things work?
    How do i say one led to shine in specific color?
    Can i write it line for line as an static effect?
    e.g. Led Nr 42 shine ff00ff
    Led Nr 43 shine ff00ff
    Led Nr 44 shine ff00ff
    .
    .
    Led Nr 122 shine 000000
    Led Nr 123 shine 000000
    Led Nr 124 shine ff00ff
    and so on....

    I want an effect that only all four corners shine in same color.
    Or an effect that only top leds shine.
    Or third effect that only every second Or third led shines.

    Are there any more informations about how to write new effects?
    Didn't find the information what command brings the led to shine.

    Would be happy about any hints.

    Best regards
