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.

Thanks

Hey Tom,

Yeah the early Manual said on the Neg side of the IR Led, so i just rolled with that until the new manual came out.

But i don't need to worry about that now,  Thanks

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.

Thanks

Gary

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??

Thanks

Gary


Im using REV H Core Boards.

OK i will give that a go,

But wouldn't it sound even more distorted if i turn the volume up on the core board??

So i just tried it again,

I have the volume set to 80 and the Mic set to 70.

I have to mov files,

The first it the standard one played from the sound editor and it the laptop version played through the board speaker,

The second is the muffled one after i play it from the ISD.  You can hear the massive difference

Yes,  I made the audio Lead,

It has 1K 1% resistors,

Im not 100% sure what the audio lvl was, but i could hear it through the Rev H board and it didn't sound that bad, but when i unplugged everything and loaded the board up it sounded bad

OK,

After making a completely new Serial Cable, and i had run out of 20K resistors i used a 18K resistor and now it all works,

So im guessing that my original cable didn't have a 20K resistor on it as to be honest i didn't make it.

But now i find that the sounds coming out of a newly programmed ISD seems a little muffled and sound over driven even thought it is softer than the original milestag ISD.

I hope this makes sense,

Any idea what this could be??

Thanks

OK,

So i have taken a couple more Vids so people can get a better understanding of what i am going through,

The first Vid when you watch it, you can see that this is a working Rev H board complete with working sounds and everything, I turn it on so the Ready to Engage sound can be heard,

The second Vid is of me using the sound editor with the same Rev H board, first i play the sound effect from the laptop, then i try to play the same sound from the ISD which is a working ISD as per the power up.

AS you can see the first sound is heard nice a clear, then when i try to play it from the ISD the Sensor lights come on and the white noise is continuations from the speaker, but there is no sound effect, However this sound chip is a working one,

So it's not a dodgy ISD,

IT must be something to do with the serial connector.

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,

Thanks

Gary

Can you send me a picture of your set up,

I just looked again and you are saying "you have the tx pin out of the pc connected to a resistor then to the rx input on the core board?"

But my wiring diagram says the TX to the RX plug.

No my PC doesn't have a build in serial port, because thats old tech and i have a new PC, but my Laptop that im doing the programming from does funny enough, 

So to answer your questions Yes!
