MilesTag CORE / Re: CORE PCB Design Files
« Last post by AlexanderWhite on April 15, 2019, 12:22:00 PM »
Here are the CAD files for the CORE Rev H PC Board.  The .PCB file is compatible with Express PCB software/service.  This is the EXACT file used for all production CORE boards.  The Rev J .BRD file is Cadsoft Eagle but I have not had this file manufactured yet.  All designs provided as-is, use at your own risk.

The Eagle BRD files can be uploaded directly to OSH Park for an inexpensive but high quality manufacturing option.  They will charge you about $33.00 for 3 boards including shipping and the turn time is around 2 weeks.

We can edit your files to make sure they are per DFM (Design for Manufacturability).

GENERAL DISCUSSION / FORUM CLOSING
« Last post by MilesTag on March 25, 2019, 01:39:53 PM »
FORUM CLOSING!!  The MilesTag forum will be closing in the next few months!!!  We are maintaining the Domains and email addresses, but cancelling the current hosting plan where the forum resides.  The online store is also closing soon.  We are still providing some ongoing parts and services - contact me via email.  The "new" website will remain online at www.lasertagparts.com.  The older website will be taken down.  As I have time, I will try to move any missing useful content to the new website. 

Best Regards

GENERAL DISCUSSION / Create a wired or wireless Target range
« Last post by POPLaserTag on February 15, 2019, 02:59:57 PM »
I have been playing with using pressure sensors to capture hits from air soft and did run a  Laser Tag arena a few years ago and wondered how I could build one with simple sensors then hook these directly  into a PC. My question is what would I need sensor wise and then board/controller to take the signal into the PC.

I am new to this so have just been playing with Phidget and the controllers via USB for pressure but wanted to try laser tags and assume the IR sensors must do something similar?

Domination Tube / Re: Domination tube used as a switch
« Last post by mstrduff7 on February 11, 2019, 05:38:10 PM »
Finally got this finished. The proof of concept worked, and it will be applied to a GMOD TTT style game mode. The setup is as follows:

Domination Board 1: 8 battery holder for power, sensor, AA wired to Dom Board 2, BB wired to Dom Board 3
Domination Board 2: Power wired to AA on Dom Board 1, Sensor, AA wired to blue light, BB wired to red light
Domination Board 3: Power wired to BB on Dom Board 2, Sensor, AA wired to red light, BB wired to blue light

I plan on using this setup as a traitor tester. If alpha team hits it should turn red (traitor), if bravo hits it should turn blue(innocent). But if the Traitor (alpha) hits the switch board (dom board 1) the lights will be switched, making innocent players look guilty.

There is more that needs done to show a basic beta test, but this is a good start.

UPDATE:  I wired up a proof of concept and the main dom board being used as a switch powered up. However, the AA and BB powered boards would not. I am wondering if the 12V output just didn't get enough power or if it won't work in general. Going to test the voltage output today.

Domination Tube / Domination tube used as a switch

I'm designing a game that needs to switch between 2 domination tubes. I was wondering if it was possible to use a dom board as a switch, using the 12V output of the AA and BB lights. If not, any ideas would be welcome.

Berk,

May i ask how does it work? Does it send the pulse out by detecting the gun shot via sound?
