WiFiBoy LCD/Sprite Library for Ardunio
You will need our LCD library to utilize WiFiBoy32 LCD and ESP32 programming. The sprite engine is implemented with a 8-bit offscreen trick. We use GIMP to generate a 256-color image sprite map into C header source.
It's necessary for most of our Arduino code examples. Please download and use "Include Library"-->"Add ZIP library" to install.
