ClockTWO Simulator

The ClockTWO boards should be completed in Mumbai today. Then it will take another couple of weeks to get a few sent here. In the meantime I've started working on the code.

This Python simulation with py2exe executable (to use: unzip, double-click dist/ClockTWO.exe) implements the same data structure that ClockTWO uses, so I can see if I am getting all the bits manipulated as I expect.

Controls to set the time:
s -- forward one second
S -- backward one second
m -- forward one minute
M -- backward one minute
f -- forward five minutes
F -- backward five minutes
h -- forward one hour
H -- backward one hour

The I, M, and D buttons emulate the hardware buttons. I moves forward one minute, D move back one minute, and M changes the color.

Please download, test, and provide feedback.

I know that this is old, but I downloaded the is great, I like it! I have a question, if I may ask...Is there any way to change the font to one that I want to use? I plan to make a word clock myself, and a simulator like this would be great! I cant decide what font to use, so, to be able to change font in this program would help me decide. thank you!

I'm glad you like it! There should be a font variable in the code. Try playing with that.

The link to doesn't work.

Could you tell me where I can download the source code?

Thank you.
