A ton of great information, like the things you didn’t know or realize you could do with ProffieOS is found on the ProffieOS Wiki pages.

New proffieboard support forum run by Fredrik:

https://crucible.hubbe.net

He personally answers pretty much every question asked there.

Also, drop in to Profezzorn’s lab on therebelarmory.com and search for just about anything that has ever been discussed about the world of Proffieboard and ProffieOS.


The GitHub repository where it all gets put together:


BLADE STYLES

For editing blade styles, the tool you want is the online Style Editor.

Paste in existing styles, edit them, or build from scratch. A great way to learn how blade styles work, what syntax it needs,

and to get a great preview of how your style is going to look in real time.

https://fredrik.hubbe.net/lightsaber/style_editor_beta.html

For a quick way to assemble custom blade styles, look no further than Fernando Derosa’s amazing contribution that is the Style Library.

Created and maintained by himself, what started as a place to archive his personal collection of custom blade styles, has become the most popular, easy and best way to get ready-to-go complete blade styles for ProffieOS. With more options available than you could ever want already, it continues to grow an a constant basis as he dreams up amazing new ways to control and display the blade….and it’s all shared freely to the community in the spirit of open source.

SOUND FONTS

We all know that a saber without sound is just an aviation baton.

The following artists provide the best in the business when it comes to saber font packages.

This list is by no means complete, and not in any particular order. It’s just a starting point for getting what you need

to make your saber incredibly realistic sounding.
