I am Beyond thrilled about this! :)  I will absolutely be supporting this new board. I need to get me one!

What are your thoughts on the accelermometer/board orientation / direction in the hilt suggestion?
Maybe something as simple as horizontal or vertical orientation so that motion and twist don't get
mixed up depending on how the board gets installed inline or sideways in the hilt?
If its not a practical feature or will mess with existing parameters don't worry as sideways
won't fit most narrow hilts but could be an option later on?

The board can be installed both sides (like in the past IIRC, for instance Vader's Vault installed their CS SD card socket up). I have orientation parameters used and coded in the firmware but it's not needed for the user to configure it, the only parameter defining orientation is the one called "gravity" which sign and range define how the angular selection works (power-on selection, spectrum).
Motion Fusion does the rest, so it's not (so) dependent on hilt placement.

I just now realized that my love isn't for the lightsaber, nor the hobby - but for Crystal Focus! :azn: :huh:

...and, by proxy, Erv. :kiss:

Thank you Eeez !  :azn: Props to the saber you build, always great use of the features, the latest corran horn with the tangible interaction, dual phase and the little "tuning fork" to adjust the crystal resonance shows that those *can* be useful. Pick features and help yourself!

Hi Erv,
Is there a possibility to drive a rumble motor and activate it only on FOC ?
Thanks

Is “end-of-lockup” or “lockup release” sound a thing?  Is there a sound that’s automatically played to conclude a blade lockup?  If it isn’t on CFX for the near future, is this a feature which could be added later via firmware?

Sorry, I’ve been out of building a while, and can’t find where I read/heard about it.
You are unique, just like everyone else.

End lockup is of course implemented (ported from cf9). No reason to remove a legacy feature!
Noted for the motor (easy cheesy)

"Noted for the motor (easy cheesy)"
the cherry on the cake would be (regarding the power applied to the rumble motor) :
A percentage of power when the blade is off
A percentage of power when the blade is on
A percentage of power when there is a swing
A percentage of power for the FOC
I guess if this is possible the %age could be managed in the settings

If it is only an on/off, it would be great anyway

Ahhh okay that makes sense  :cheesy:
