The SATR-Go app enables you to score the 8 most popular Laser Tag games:
The SATR live-action gaming engine enables gamers to play just about anywhere, right out of the box.
Gamers don't need a smartphone, or Wi-FI, or Bluetooth connection.
The taggers interact with each other and the SATR-GO mobile scoreboard app.
Operators can play indoors or outdoors, day or night.
This new version of the real-time scoring app is designed with the mobile laser tag operator in mind.
Whereas the SATR-HUB app covered all the functions of the Full Master Controller, this new SATR-GO the app covers the Simple Controller functions.
There are 12 pre-set commands.
The commands included in SATR-Go are:
The first option is "Mission" this enables the Mobile Laser Tag Operator to select one of the 8 pre-set games (listed above).
The second option is the "Timer". Here you can set the duration of the game. Operators can set Hours and Minutes. Up to 23 hours and between 1 and 59 minutes. So you can have a game as short as 1 minute or as long as 23 hours and 59 minutes.
The third option is "Briefing". The briefing will pause all gamers and clear the statistics. This is so the Operator can give a Mission Briefing to the players. The start function will start all the units at are set in the Battlegroup that the units are set to. (You can have up to 8 battle groups in close proximity without cross-fire.)
The "End" function will end all the units at once.
The "Refresh" function is a request to get all the latest scores and real-time statistics outside of the automatic pinging the system already does.
The "Phrase" function is a shortlist of in-game voice-over phrases. These are also post-game phrases for group management such as: "Change Ends" or "Red Team is Victorious!".
The "Switch" function sends a signal to the Battle Boxes. Specifically, the blue team medic box will switch to act as a red team medic. Likewise, if playing the Capture the Flag game, the flag boxes will switch teams. Also, if you are playing Heist, the Vault boxes will also automatically switch teams.
The "Volume" function will change the volume on all the devices. You can select from off, low, medium, or high.
My favorite is function is "FIND". This will, via digital Radio, confirm everything is turned off. If the devices aren't off, then they will start issuing a loud "Siren" sound effect. Warning! This is very loud!!
Just in case, you triggered that FIND command accidentally there is an "UN-FIND" function. This will stop the find command.
The "Theme"Function can set the gaming theme.
Just like our other Windows apps, SATR-HUB & SATR-SCORE, you need a digital radio dongle.
(This other apps are best for a fixed, indoor laser tag arena or FEC, rather than a mobile operation.)
This dongle is inserted into a full-sized USB port in your laptop of tablet.
It connects your computer to the gaming units via digital radio.
Operators can select from the following gaming themes:
Each one will change the graphics and the look and feel of the scoreboard.
SATR-Go allocates random aliases to the players, automatically.
The mobile scoreboard is easy to use.
It is designed to run on a single Windows 10 laptop or tablet. (Please note: This app works only on Windows 10, it does not work on Windows 10s.)
Tablet or Laptop or PC will need the following requirements as a minimum:
The new version of the SATR-go! scoreboard software caters for very large groups even better.
The system is now more responsive due to moving time consuming processes to a multi thread architecture.
The app now has better support Team Death Match (aka Team Elimination) games. So the system reports the final result faster.
The scoreboard app registers the "kills" (or de-activations) from individual gaming guns during the mission. But at the end of the game the system just collects the updates form the active battle boxes.
The score is higher of the kill court or opponent's spawn count.
This also applies to Respawn Count.
TDM now supported for large battles with more emphasis on the opponents respawn count so that at mission end, only the respawn counts are collected. Kill counts are still collected during the mission but not at the end, speeding up the announcement of the winning team.
This is also configurable in the INI file. (This option can be disabled using the TDMREFRESH property in the ini file.)
Peter Lander is excited about this new, improved update of SATR-go mobile scoreboard app.
"I’m recommending any existing SATRGo user try this version of SATRGo. I have moved some processes that are slow into their own thread so the system is now more responsive. This version works much better for larger games.It also ends the TDM faster, it picks up kills during the game. At the end it will get final respawn counts from each medic box. The team kills count is equal to the higher of the accumulated kill count from each gun on a team or the number of respawns on the opposition medic box. By default it does not try to do a final check of each gun for the kill count which slows the system up when the game ends especially for large games. The final check can be enabled by editing with notepad the SATRGoIni.xml file changing to "True". Please contact me if you have SATRGo (and especially the custom USB RF module) to get the download link," Peter said.
