Re: 128x64 Graphic LCD Module

As far as I know your graphic display is not currently supported by ESP Easy. Perhaps someone has published something for it in ESP Easy's Github PlayGround. Otherwise you'll have to write your own plugin for it.

Instead of a typical level shifter you could use a simple NPN or FET transistor buffer circuit. This would allow you to use the GPIO Pulse command which would simplify your rules and allow 100mS switch On times.
