    It's there for people like me. I'm a big fan of it, in the movies it wasn't the entire blade that lit up in a clash. Everyone to their own taste I suppose.

    The argument against is that when the effect isn't in the same location as the contact it looks worse, not better. In FX-SaberOS we use a random location for the blaster block effect, the same effect could easily be applied to the clash with a more specific area where the effect would occur.

    QUOTE=SA22C;276814]The Teensy/Proffie saber board has localized clash functionality.

    Here's an example from the style builder:

    By default, the localized clash happens in the middle 1/2 of the blade, but randomized within that section. The clash itself can be a single colour or an effect, built by combining styles and colours.

    Here's another example that combines white and red in a random flicker effect for clashes, lockups, drags and blasts. In addition, a simple audio-based flicker is added to the main blade colour so the blade flickers in time to the hum.[/QUOTE]

    What are these links? It takes me to a builder I know nothing about.
    I've now purchased a saber with teensy and opensource. I'm waiting on some batteries. I'm unfamiliar with how to use the opensource to obtain or share settings to make effects.
