- Live preset changing while blade is running (skips font.wav and preon).
- Battle Mode, gesture ignitions, and multi-blast based on fett263's work.
- Auto enter/exit multi-blaster block mode
- Spoken Battery level, with percentage option.
- Added quote sound so force.wavs can remain as force.
- Add quote.wav files to font to use.
- Play / Stop track control while blade is on.
- Force Push is always available, not just in Battle Mode.
- Melt is always available as no button, with pull-away or button to end.
- Drag is always clash with button pressed while pointing down.
- No blade = no gestures option if Blade Detect is used.
- Use wav files for talkie things.
- Optional On-the-fly volume controls with cycle through min and max levels.
Optional Blade style elements:
On-Demand battery level - A layer built into the blade styles that reacts
as the battery gets weaker, changing blade color
from Green to Red, and the blade length shortens:
EFFECT_USER1 - use as a standalone trigger for EffectSequence<>,
for example as a way to have multiple blade styles in one preset.
- Usage:EffectSequence<EFFECT_USER1, item1, item2...>
- Custom swap.wav files can be used as the sound effect,
otherwise ccchange.wav is used.
EFFECT_USER2 - for blade effects with sounds that might work better without hum,
this plays sounds monophonically.
(think seismic charge silence, iceblade etc...)
- monosfx.wav files are used. It can be just the sound, or a
blade effect too by using EFFECT_USER2 in a TransitionEffectL.
#define ENABLE_AUTO_SWING_BLAST - Multi-blast initiated by simply swinging
within 1 second of last blast.
Exit by not swinging for 1 second.
#define VOLUME_MENU_CYCLE - This allows the Volume menu to loop through from
maximum back to minimum and vice versa.
#define FEMALE_TALKIE_VOICE - To use a female voice version of onboard Talkie.
#define NO_VOLUME_MENU - Option to omit On-the-fly Volume menu control with buttons.
- There are four gesture types: swing, stab, thrust and twist.
For simplicity, using gesture ignition will automatically skip the preon effect.
Below are the options to add to the config to enable the various gestures:
- If using blade detect, Gesture ignitions or retractions are disabled.
**NOTE** Only works when a BLADE_DETECT_PIN is defined.
- This mode plays a force sound (or force push sound if the font contains it) with
a controlled pushing gesture, and is always available, not just in Battle Mode.
- Used for adjustment to the Push gesture length in millis needed to trigger
Force Push. Recommended range 1 ~ 10,
1 = shortest, easiest to trigger, 10 = longest. Default value is 5.
- Makes gesture ignition ALSO enter battle mode automatically on ignition.
"Battle Mode 1.0" by fett263, BC modified version:
- Once you enter battle mode, buttons are not used for lockup.
Clashing the blade against something will automatically do lockup and then end
when you pull away.
- Automatic lockup and grazing clash (swinging through) detection works
by measuring delay of the saber blade pulling back from the clash.
If you clash the blade and it does not pull back during the delay period,
it is assumed to be a lockup and the lockup effect will show on the blade.
If you clash the blade and pull away, only the bgn/end lockup effects will show.
You can adjust the threshold of this detection by using:
#define BC_LOCKUP_DELAY (insert number here)
Default value is 200.
If you don't rebound off the object (opponent's blade) but instead clash while
swinging through, clash will automatically trigger.
- To manually override the auto-lockup temporarily and get a regular clash,
hold any button while clashing.
- Automatic clash/lockup uses the pre and post lockup effects
so your blade style and font MUST have those capabilities to support
- Melt will automatically trigger with no buttons when you physically
stab something, and end when you pull away or push any button.
- Stab will trigger either with no buttons and thrusting forward,
or with any button and physically stabbing something.
