Re: Mega option

Mega tags is a feature of the Deluxe and LTAR taggers that lets you combine up to four tags into one shot. It is not supported by the LTX and so is just ignored by that tagger.

Re: LTAR TRRS Protocol

It can talk to the LTAR too. The current version has a text box at the bottom where you can type blocks in to send. It can also dump the RAM now in addition to all the variables. The firmware is in mask ROM so I don't think there's any way to permanently brick an LTAR through software. There are som...

I've also found the authentication method. It's a 16-bit challenge/response. I haven't figured out how to generate the correct responses yet.

Re: LTAR TRRS Protocol

It's a more basic status bl...
