The latest Battlefield Sports software, SATR, helps Battlefield Operators run their mobile laser tag business.
SATR offers some useful features such as the new “Spare Device” setting. For anyone running a mobile laser tag or rental business the “Spare Device” software setting takes a lot of the headache out of running an event.
The SATR Spare Device automatically uses the “Laser Tag” language i.e. the gaming guns give you the real-time hit-feedback when you got an opponent by issuing a sound effect “Tagged” and when you’ve killed them the gaming guns sound effects is “Deactivated”.
It is also great if you want to minimize staff training and potential errors. This is useful if you have junior assistants.
You are running a festival or village fair. You have 24 Cobra gaming guns (12 on the red and 12 on the blue team) everyone is having fun. You have the gaming guns set to Battle 1, on Hard Mode with 3 Hit Points.
In preparation, you’ve used the super easy set up with the Master
Controller, simply zapping half the gaming guns as “Set Team Blue” and the other half as “Set Team Red”.
This means that there is not no recoil emulation (the red dot stays on all the time). Gamers get unlimited reloads and the unit automatically reloads, but the hit delay is reduced to 0.5 seconds.
Experience has shown that 0.5-second hit delay is best for the
Game in close quarters games. This makes your mission briefing super-fast.
You have your Domination Box in the middle of the playing area and a blue team medic box down one end and the red team medic the other. You have set up your inflatables in a dense (close together) maze so from one inflatable to the next is no more than a couple of yard gap. The two teams start out of sight on one another.
There are hundreds of kids queued up waiting for their 5-minute game. People are having fun. You are making money.
Then some of the Bravo Clan gamers start milling around their base camp. Something was up.
Turns out that the Blue Team Medic Box wasn’t charged. After an hour of gaming, it was flat as a tack.
Step in the “Spare Device” to save the day!
The spare device mode lets Battlefield Operators select a limited list of options at boot up such as Red Team Phaser, Blue Team Phaser, Domination Box, Red Team Medic Box or Master Controller.
operator literally turns on the spare device and runs through a series
of options by pressing the red or black (up or down) buttons and when
you see the device you’d like to use pull the trigger (which acts as an
enter key) to lock in your choice.
The show must go on.
So the “Spare Device” is a great tool for running a Mobile Laser Tag business.
