Eleri (working on the table to the right) is rigging up an Audio Jack so we can see the data that is transmitted from the Lazer Tag App on the iOS devices for the LTAR and learn how to manipulate this to unlock weapon capabilities without having an iOS device actually attached. It might also help us to display some kind of health gauge if someone else doesn't already beat us to it.
Additionally, I've been doing some heavy repair work on the LTX DMR. Internally, I think I've finally got stuff working properly again. I had to relocate the reload switch because it was getting worn out in the one spot to be utilized for laser tag. Before the regular season starts up again, I'll fix a few broken and worn down bits on the exterior to give it a nice clean finish again. Of course, it'll probably get beat up during Season 8 again, but at least it will be looking good to start off with!
Customized blasters used to be a common sight in the days when we used Laser Challenge systems. It was just easier to make them due to the simplistic design of the blasters. With the LTX and LTAR at our core now, folks aren't as ambitious and I'm not able to crank out customized blasters as quickly as I would like. I'm hopeful for Season 8 to change that look, as there's quite a few customized blasters folks have been working on.
- LTX DMR - Bazookafied
- LTX EF5 - Bazookafied
- Ultimate LTX - Sundawg
- CTDYNE LTX - Eleri
- Phoenix Blackout II - Joe
- LTX "377" - Eric
- Tactical Tag Anniversary LTX - Scott
And, on top of those 7 completed blasters, there's a few more in development, too! Should be a good assortment of blasters out there!
