Re: Hardware ideas

I have plans for all of this. It will take a lot of time though. I asked for a big box of patience for Christmas, just to be able to hold my excitement under control :-) Probably already on your list too: some kind of belt, vest, helmet,... with sensors only, for some kind of "protect the VIP" game...

Re: Teams

The last paragraph is about how the software currently works. You can create a player name list on the left, and assign these names to players (guns) that have joined the game you are setting up. These 3 suggestions are all about when you right click a player name on the left. Now all the joined pla...

Re: Hardware ideas

Nice, those are actually 2 games I had in mind when the ideas came up :-) I own a Nerf electronic bomb we sometimes use for "defuse the bomb" games, but it would be nicer if the bomb also knew the lazer tag protocol, so you can't defuse the bomb when you're tagged out for example

Re: Hardware ideas

The yet-to-be-released Skirmos guns (https://skirmos.com/) use radio communication between the guns for extra communication. Maybe that's an idea for a nice extra? Imagine having multiple command centers, one is used as the host, but others are being used for multiple functions. I already mentioned ...

Re: Respawn signal

I had an issue playing respawn games too. Maybe I didn't understand it right, but I thought in a 2 team respawn game with 25 lives, when a player was hit 10 times, he was neutralized and could not shoot or get shot until he got to the respawn zone again? I started a 2 team respawn game, had 1 gun pe...

Hardware ideas

Probably not so easy to implement, but just some wild ideas: Could you make the command center be able to run when disconnected from the pc too? So you connect it, start a game, then disconnect it and after the game ends, reconnect it and debrief? Could it have wifi instead of usb? Could you have mu...

Software ideas

Can you make the countdown time adjustable? Now it is 30 seconds, we hade some games where 60 seconds would have been better Could you have a main screen with checkboxes to indicate what types of guns are being used? For me, we only used LTX guns, I didn't need the option "mega tags" or "medic", an...

Scoreboard

Some possible improvements for the scoreboard: Let people upload their css on your website, so people can also download a "themed" scoreboard When playing own the zone, show the points scored in the zone too (if possible?) Sort players by ranking, or by name Add some fun statistics to the scoreboard...

Teams

When playing in teams, we use bandana's to identify teams. Guns have 2 different colours, but you can play in 3 teams. We use blue, green and red bandana's. I can imagine other people also use colours to identify teams? It would be nice to be able to assign a colour to a team in the software too. In...

Save player profiles

I already read the suggestion elsewhere on the forum, but I'll start a new topic for it, since a lot of suggestions can follow for this topic. The idea is that a player can have a profile that can be saved, and that can hold game statistics over multiple games. First of all, you'll have to decide wh...
