I think you have to pretty much talk to the PSP. Last I heard, they were VERY expensive since they're custom built.

I would go through a hockey dealer you should be able to get close to what you want at half the cost.

Be aware that the X-ball scoreboard includes software and a wireless connection to display chrono speeds.

I know. A few years ago the Purdue Paintball Club was looking at buying one--until they were quoted a price in excess of $20k. Last I heard, they were trying to build their own version of an X-Ball scoreboard. It helps that they're an engineering school.

Wow. That sounds stupid.

http://www.scoretronics.com/football...scoreboard.htm

ask them for a custom one.

Of course the issue of software and full Xball functionality is a question.

Bet there's a patent or two that the Xball guys will try to enforce if you manage to build an afordable score board.

Except for the chrono numbers, a serviceable Xball scoreboard should be easily made by one of the on-line custom scoreboard stores...

Take Computer Programing and create your own XBall program and then use that, it will take a while if it is just you doing the writing but its cheaper. You could use Visual Basic .Net just go to microsofts site and search for the install file, it may say you have to pay for it but it really is free.

If you are looking to get a scoreboard there are a couple options:

From cheapest to most expensive:

1. Go to the website listed above and download the software. There is also a link in my signature. It's the official backup software of the PSP, CFOA, NCPA and probably a bunch of other leagues that I don't know about.

2. Buy a scoreboard from PSP.

These have "black box" controllers. We will be selling them after World Cup and they are all being upgraded for D2,D3, fixed and tested at the place where we buy them(Santech) so they will be internally good as new and they are also chcecking/repairing/replacing all of the mounting brackets. For prices, email me at:

alex at pspevents.com (the at should be an @ but I'm trying to cut down on spam)

We may do an ebay auction as well and if you email with interest in buying one I will let you know.

3. Buy a new one from Santech. The boards we bought pre-upgrade were ~$10,000 each.

1. you wouldn't use VB, in most cases you'd use C++, you have more power to program.
2. It would take a hell of a lot of man hours to make sure everything in compaitble with the serial ports, wireless, and all the other razzle dazzle needed. It would be a mutliperson job.

Anyways back on subject your best bet is to get a hockey score board and work your way from there. Good Luck
