Laser Tag Guns
Battlefield Sports finishes the year with another improvement in its SATR digital software, announcing the SATR 2.4c release.
This latest software release offers:
On the simple master controller (in Locked Out mode) there is no longer a confirm on START and END (Radio) commands. So the display when it shows "SATR (Radio)" the operator now just needs to pull the trigger it issue the RF Commando. The confirmation step was removed because untrained renters got confused by the confirmation requirement.
Battlefield Sports started the year with a bang by launching its new SATR 2.2f release.
Battlefield Sports announces a new software release for the Honey Badger. This new software version now enhances the live game play of the Honey Badger laser tag gun model, offering two unique features with the ability to change from sub sonic to super sonic mode and back again. Read all about it here.
Introducing the new soundscape "Arcade". Ideal for Family Entertainment Centers, Tourist Resorts and Summer Camp SATR2.2 has a new soundscape called 'Arcade'. Rather than the standard word cues for game play actions the new Arcade SFX offer a set of intuitive sonic elements just like sounds from a retro pinball parlor. Read the blog post, here.
Advanced Friendly Fire by Team takes the LIVE Gaming Scene in a new direction. With the launch of the new Friendly Fire Team Mode, teams can now battle over a Domination Box or other objective, with friendly fire on. Find our more, here.
In the SATR2.2f release have changed the way auto fire respawns work. In the previous version auto fire respawns could be better when running games on limited or counted respawns. We have now changed the rate of respawns to be slower and the result is they don’t count the other teams respawns by accident on the medic or combination box. Battlefield Operators love automatic respawns.
The Change Language bug is fixed. Now when you switch between languages it does not end up with the no language as it was occasionally possible in 2.0y.
Domination Box to set an independent game timer. This means that a timer can be set without needing a master controller. This has use for when you want a particular Domination Box to be decided before the game finishes or your running a battlefield without Battlefield Sports equipment such as paintball or Airsoft field and you still need a domination box with the push the button control feature.
SATR 2.0 has now been released. See what all the fuss is about, click here.
Hundreds and hundreds of gaming guns across the world have been upgraded to the new release SATR 2.
This is a major change to the system, but instantly familiar.
SATR 2 now comes with perks:

The previous release of SATR 1.65a offers new functionality and sound effects for Domination Boxes.
DOMINATION: Fully integrated into the SATR system domination box mode, while any device can become a domination box as long as it has a sensor, LCD, hit light, board and switches we have a specific model which is a Domination Box. The Domination Box loaded with the new v1.65a software is ideal for making it clear who is in control. Now as well as the Light FX, there are also SFX. So when the blue team takes control the box will issue the order "Bravo Team in Control" and when the red team counter-attack the box with say "Alpha Team in Control". (The "B" team is always Bravo.) This way the C.O. doesn't need to. These orders will be repeated every 15 seconds (or you can set the time intervals or off).
The player that causes their team to start the domination clock again for their team hears a dong noise on their shooting gun - this is using our patented peer to peer hit feedback system for another cool purpose. Also on the game stats screen when the game ends if you have made at least 1 domination, you get a stat saying how many you got, its called O for objective.
Generally with domination use team settings on the gaming guns. Domination mode is compatible with all versions of SATR that support teams although to get the dong the shooting gaming gun will need v1.6 loaded too. If you shoot the box from a team A gun, it flashes red and with a B gun flashes blue (or green with old LEDs installed). Alternatively if your using friendly fire on gaming guns, then use the push to dominate option.
Games are easy, just set up two battle boxes as combination boxes with unlimited respawns and of course set them to the right team with the master controller. Set up a domination box in the center, normally in an area where you have to get in close to shoot but from my experience this is not required to make a great game. At the end of the game just check the flashing lights, which ever light is flashing is the winner! With the new 1.65a software version the Domination Box also announces the winner with SFX e.g. "Bravo Team is Victorious!"
This is my new favorite mission now for the first 2 games. For indoor I found the best way to play it is 5-10 minutes games with the difficulty level set to hard and 3 hit points - used this for the Microsoft TechEd event indoors and it worked great.
I have fallen in love with Zombie games. The genre provides the flexibility one needs to really create interesting scenarios and there is also more options for dress ups and props. SATR now supports Zombie games with survivors automatically turning into Zombies, Zombies getting their own special attack (short range without muzzle flash, no red dot and potentially silent). There is a new mission available as well Zombies which I recommend as your starting point for developing Zombie games called Zombie Survival. There is two modes for Zombie games, Holocaust and Apocalypse.
Holocaust is the simpler option where basically when a survivor dies they respawn as a Zombie (changing from team A to team B, also changing hit points and changing style of attack).
With Apocalypse mode, as well as taking wounds from Zombies players are infected and the more wounds, generally faster the infection. When a survivor 1st dies, an automatic resurrection time commences (configurable), once this time has elapse, the survivor turns into Zombie without having to go to a medic box. A respawn from a A team medic box during the turning period will very temporarily stop the infection but will restore full hit points.
We will do some more features for Zombie games in future for sure especially to make them run on as few staff as possible.
This replaces hire mode as the terminology. Operators now use this extensively to preset all their equipment and not let the staff change any settings. Also good if your running a rental option for your business something that I encourage everyone to have a good look at if you can make the capital investment it has proven worthwhile.
The system allows you to have to red dot scope stay on all the time if you wish in hard or standard mode - its called Recoil on the system
