I have finally finished work on the two shotguns. I now have a total of 6 hand held guns and the mounted minigun. More details to follow in the future.

Score Box

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

I have started work on the a score box. The idea behind the score box is that at the end of the game, each player shoots the score box and in doing so downloads the log of who hit them to it. The score box then checks the data for any errors and flashes a green LED if correct, Red if not. The score box then sends a formatted string to the connected pc.

I am currently writing a small phyton program which will recieve the logged hits from each gun from the scorebox and process them. The idea is that if every gun knows what gun has hit it, the Python program when it has all the scores, will be able to work out how many hits each player has scored.

As well as giving a detailed “who hit who” breakdown, the program will also give each player an overall score.
