That makes sense.

Quickly looking at that old code, I didn't abs() the values, also I multiplied them...

Not a screen problem, a wiring problem. Perhaps the breadboard is getting too old and not making contact with the pins very well. Soldered the screen directly to the beetle board and it's working :-)
