Hello, I just got my first kit (https://blog.squix.org/product/esp8266-wifi-color-display-kit-2-4)

Followed this guide, only guide I could find, https://blog.squix.org/weatherstation-guide

Could not get it to work and I think it is because the guide is for another display.

I could not find the other one in the libraries.

I am new to programming, github and Aurdino. So how do I add the color one?

Hi Obelix

Have you checked the sticker on the box? There is a link to this (admittedly short) guide: 
https://blog.squix.org/wifi-color-display-kit

If you have issues after following this guide please ask them here in the forum...

Regards,
Daniel

Yes, but that guide only handles the assembling for the kit and step 7 links to the software guide and that guide is not for the color version. And then step 8 says to download https://github.com/squix78/esp8266-weather-station-color/ but nothing about how to install that.

Step 8 actually also mentions that the README on https://github.com/squix78/esp8266-weather-station-color/ contains all information to setup the software. Have you followed the README there?

The only README I can find there is this:
https://github.com/squix78/esp8266-weather-station-color/blob/master/README.md
and it does not say anything about how to install the software?

Just to recap, I have soldered the hardware, the color kit. Need now to install/configure/run the software.
Only guide I can find is for the kit with the OLED display, not for the Color Display TFT?
