I have a build I would like to do with proffie, but a requirement for the install is to have a removable crystal that will change the function of the saber. This would be utilizing the Goth3Design grand master chassis for vintasge graflex flash cells, there is already a selected connector with 6 connection points (3 for a neopixel).
Ideally this would change to a specific sound font or folder of sorts with the removal or insertion of the crystal. Is there a method that could be used to achieve this on proffie?
It’s also possible to hook up an RFID reader to the serial port, then put RFID chips in the crystals. (Or use savi crystals) and use that to select presets.
The code is already there, and has been tested, but I don’t know if anybody has actually put it in a saber yet.
Blade ID won’t let you trigger changes immediately.
By default Blade ID is only scanned when the saber boots up.
You would need a button or something that triggers when the crystal is inserted.
This button can be hooked up to the blade detect pin, which would then trigger blade ID to be re-scanned.
If you only have one crystal, you don’t need blade ID, only blade detect.
so, it might help to see it in action. This is a video link to the install with a CFX using tangible font selection to change to a different font thus changing the led config. I am looking for a similar effect or a way to simulate this.
The removable crystal has been done with proffie using the detect and ID features. Knowing the Goth GMM chassis you are talking about there is not going to be room to stuff in the RFID reader, antenna, and the tag in the crystals.
