MilesTag CORE / Different Firmwares
« on: March 19, 2017, 06:39:36 AM »
Hey everyone,

Can someone tell me is there a way to make different Firmwware talk to each other,

i have a number of set ups with REV H/J running 5.64,  but i also have quite a few Rev G running 5.42

I was wondering if there is a 5.64 firmware for the Rev G, because the Rev G is a different Sound Chip,

but i want to be able to use these for A Larp, but they are missing the 5.64 extras.

I put in a 5.64 Chip and replaced the ISD with the 1790 but it wouldn't turn on and the L4941 started to get really hot, if that means anything, but with the old ISD and chip it works no problems.


Other Add-Ons / Game Box types

Hey All,

Just wondering a few things,

Is there a way to make the old version of the game box, (The one with the dip switches) into a damage zone, Ie, like what jim does with the new version where it sends out 1 hit ever second.

Also is there a eagle or gerber file for the game box anywhere.



MilesTag CORE / Please Confirm

Hey Everyone,

can someone please confirm for me in regards to Resistors on the IR LED,

I thought i read in the building PDF that it needed a Resistor on the Neg line from the connector, 

However looking at the Wiring Schematic it looks like both the IR and Muzz LED's have resistors on the board.

So can someone just let me know if i am reading this right and then i will just Wire the LEDs without,

I have been running my rigs with 330R resistors on the LED wire as well, so will this affect my range, or really not have any issues because it's already resistored to 330R before getting to the resistor on the wire.

And finally,  If i want to add a lower resistor to say make the IR led brighter for a sniper rifle of something, like 270R do i have to replace this with the 330R on the board??



Im using REV H Core Boards.

MilesTag CORE / Old Firmware Files
« on: March 19, 2016, 06:02:18 AM »
G'Day everyone,

I was just wondering if there was a site with the old firmware files on it, And i list of what is compatible with what.

Currently i have

Rev B
Rev G
Rev H

The Rev B only seem to work with 5.42 correctly, If i try any other version 5.50 or 5.64  i get a little pop for each sound and no muzzle or IR flashing,

I know the ISd sound chips changed around Rev G/H  but i wouldn't have thought this would matter,

Can someone let me know if i am doing something wrong, as i would like to try and get these working for Zombie mode, as i have 4 Rev B guns set up and i dont want to bench them just cause i cant upgrade the firmware,



Sound Effects / Programming Sound Chips Please Help
« on: March 13, 2016, 12:13:16 AM »
Hi Everyone,

I have build a number of Rev H/J boards as per the eagle design files Jim has posted,

These all seem to work as i have been using these with other parts from bought boards,

I have been trying to program some blank sound chips ISD1790PY,  i have the serial adapter and the headphone adapter,

When i plug these into my laptop and run the sound editing program i have issues.

Firstly i can hear the sounds through the gun speaker when i try to play the sounds from the editor,
When i test the serial connection my sensor LED lights up and stays lit and you can hear white noise / static from the speaker.
If i program the ISD you hear all the sounds going through the system but the LED stays lit and doesn't flash as per each sound like it is meant to.
i have tried on a number of different boards and they all do different things, some are louder than others and some don't work at all.

I put a working ISd in the board and tried to play the sound from the ISD but got a constant lit LED and white noise / static.

Im sure this is something simple, but please can someone help,  has anyone come across this before?




MilesTag CORE / Rev J Build List
« on: March 23, 2015, 11:21:51 PM »
Hi Admin,

Do you have a parts build list for the Rev J Boards

I have been putting together one of my own. But not sure
How accurate it is.

So would really like one if there is one out there.



LEDs, Optics and Sensors / Sensor Wiring Help
« on: February 20, 2015, 07:31:38 PM »
Greeting's fellow Taggers,

I have recently obtained a number of Miles kits that i am slowly working through all the issues trying to get them working again,  One of the issues i have is that the sensors seems to be either old, or home made jobs.

 Because of this,  when i try to plug them in i am having no luck at all.

I have included a front and rear picture of these, and hope that someone out there can look at this and go,  Ah, this wire is Gnd, this wire is Hit this wire is 5V and this wire is Data.

when i plugged these into the main board, pin 1 on the J2 block was Black,Green,Yellow,red and i got no response from the sensors,

i pretty much swapped them so Pin 1 became Black, Green,Yellow,Red and the red Hit LED on the sensor light up but stayed on and never went out even when i started a new game.

Not sure if that helps you or not.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi Guys, 

I have a handful of RevG boards that are still working, and i was just wondering if i want to update them to RevJ (ish) can i just replace the 2 main Chips on teh board, or do i need the whole RevJ board as well?
