This is a cool project!· Adding an LCD isn't a problem, basically I would use a serial LCD for ease of use.· Here is a link to some serial LCDs:· http://www.parallax.com/html_pages/products/audiovisual/audio_visual.asp· The serial LCD uses only one I/O pin, Vdd, and Vss for a connection.· Depending on what information you want to display, you will need to create a variable representing the information.· This will allow you to use the SEROUT command to send over the information to the serial LCD.· I believe you mentioned that you want to read in the different levels of activity and when it reaches a certain level that you like to send that information to an LCD?· Also what did want to change with the strike rate?· When you are finished with this project, it would be a great one for the "Project" section on the forums.
