Greetings!
"Hello_World.cpp" for me worked perfectly but "Hello_World_Using_HCTimer2" did not light anything in the Matrix;
I would also like to know how to link several Colorduino together to display text; Thanks for the code

It looks like the while(1) line is being optimised out causing the print line to be repeatedly run. The library and sketches are quite old now so my guess is something has changed it in a recent version of the Arduino IDE to break the sketch. I've fixed the problem simply by moving the print line to the setup() section so it's only run once then removed the while() function. See updated sketch in first post.

You would need to program each board separately and then use either the serial interface or I2C interface to send serial commands to and from each board to synchronize them with one another. So for instance you could send a serial command to each board to trigger when to start automatic scrolling with each one being offset by one character, or use the DisplayPos(Position) function to directly control what part of the text string is displayed and then send the position for each board via the serial port.
