Tourney modes??

How do they prevent you from using different modes on your marker? I know there's tournament lock, but how exactly does this work? Also, is there a lot of cheating in terms of modes in the tourney scene?

They can pick up if you are shooting too fast by sound sometimes and they have radar guns that pick up the speed.

someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Since the first question is answered, ill answer the second one for ya.

Cheating wasn't really an issue until ramping, and rebound came out. The first markers that had ramping and rebound boards were considered cheater markers, but then look at today, ramping and rebound are both legal in some tournament formats.

After a while the speedy 2 board came out. This was quite literally a "cheater" board. Everything was adjusted through a morse code that the board had. Wanted to change from ramping to full auto? Wanted to change from 20 bps to 25bps, just type in a morse code and there you go. After a while the refs started catching on to this. The penalty for having a "cheater" board was very great. Your team was disqualified, and the marker was pulled from that tournament. Not to mention a pretty hefty point deduction.

Now with the new technology such as the robot, and radar guns, cheating isn't really a factor anymore.

OMG- you have not seen the Robot? It's called Optimus Prime and when it uses it's huge radar gun to detect over speeds, and cheating, it immediately transforms into the

"PAINTBALL OF DEATH"

and immediately targets the offending party...

Like this:

This little cheating bastard was caught shooting at over 1bps - and immediately terminated by the nefarious and hated robot...

the robot is the same thing as the computer. They hook the marker up to a machine (the robot) linked to the computer. and it then sends vibrations throughout the marker to check for illegal bounce and issues like that.

tournament lock works where you are unable to change into your menu to access the different modes (usually allows psp, nxl, and semi). They do this so when they come to check your gun your not allowed to quicky change modes into another legal mode and check out ok
