If you purchased the unit from SEETRON, with a serial interface, the data sheet, and instructions can be downloaded from the bottom of this web page:
http://www.seetron.com/slcds.htm

Here are the basic instructions for creating your own fonts and graphics:

As you will note in those instructions, this is in conjunction with some of the software utilities on the CD shipped with that LCD.

For your leisure enjoyment, here is the game of Pong (by Al Williams) which can be played with a Stamp BS-2 and that graphics display:

I think I figured it out.· Do I have to save the Images a slot and simply tell it which slot I put the new font in?
