We, the engineers at Empire Paintball hid an “Easter Egg” in the software of the Z2 that would allow us to adjust it’s settings, and now I am going to share it with you.
OK, onto the secret sauce...
1) Turn the loader on, have it running but with no paint in it.
2) Push and hold left but then push and hold right button also.
3) Hold for about 5 seconds until the green LED flashes
4) Then release left button first then release right button. You must release the buttons in the correct order. It feels weird at first, but becomes easy after an attempt or two. We made it weird on purpose.
Programming is the same as a prophecy except now left and right buttons functions are switched:
Left (rev) button chooses setting whether you want speed, sound activation, motor sensing or RF
Right(fwd) changes setting value - Press the button the number of times you want the setting
Green is speed and can be set from 1-6
Orange is sound sensitivity and can be set from 1-6
Red is motor sensing and should pretty much be left at the stock setting of 2 (it can only be 1 for off and 2 for on)
Blue is RF and shouldn’t need to be adjusted either. 1 is off 2 is on.
The values aren't the same as the Prophecy. So there are the same number of settings, but speed 3 on the Z2 isn't the same as speed 3 on an original Prophecy.
Sorry to bring this from the dead but my brand new out of box Z2 is absolutely destroying paint IN the hopper.
Would lower the speed solver this? Everything works fine for the first ten or so shots then it starts blending paint. I just don't get it.
Any suggestions Simon?
EDIT: It seems my anti-jam comes loose when I start ramping. I know I have everything tightly together. Not sure why thats happening.
