noob question

okay so i have three questions that might make me sound stupid to experienced players but yeah...

question 1 is can different guns use different boards? like can i put a fusion fx board in an etek 3?

question 2 is if i can't do that. can different years of the gun use the same board? like an ego 08 and an ego 11?

my next one is about the forums. i see people going : dodgy : and : tup : what does that mean? lol
that's all i have to ask.

You can't be an FX board in an Ego. They are completely different. Hope this helps.

Most boards are specific to a brand and or type of marker and the specific frame the board fits in. For example, the DM line of paintball markers that have UL frames can all use the same board, but you can't take that same board and put it in a Planet Eclipse Ego or vice versa.

Yes, as long as the frame is the same on the marker from year to year, once again, for example the DM frame changed in the DM11 so you couldn't use a DM10 board or ealier in a DM11

Hope this helps

q 1) no
q 2) different frames is the more important thing, but generally just go with no.
q 3) those are different emoticons used to convey emotion that can not be accurately described through text without making the post irrelevant.

Also google the question and you will be surprised at how exact the answer can be.

1st question- http://www.ansgear.com/category_s/3455.htm

as you can see, you can have 1 model of a board made for multiple guns, but you can't take the one say for the g3 and put it into a tippmann. the way the board fits into each gun is different, but how you operate the board is universal

2nd question- : tup : is basically agreeing with what someone else said (like i did to start this post) instead of a : tup : some people will just put "." or
"+1"

: dodgy : is a bit harder to explain but here is a decent thread to explain it http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=865739

No, unfortunately you can not. The frame changed just after '08, and then changed in '11 as well.

I believe that is correct but someone please correct me if I'm wrong. Not really knowledgeable on the Ego and its evolution thru the years.

And if you notice alot of fields only allow standard ramping so an aftermarket board is pointless unless you play a series that allows you to shoot a million balls a second.

MOST of the time, no. The FEW exceptions are (as far as I know) within the same brand. For example, Smart Parts Shocker and Nerve boards could be swapped.

Sometimes. Many guns might use the same (or swap-able) boards for a few years, then completely redesign it.

or are pretty self explainitory.

is something in of itself. Generally it signifies that whatever it is used with is sarcastic or facetious. For example:

Building on this, replacing the stock Ego board with anything non-LCD is a downgrade regardless of what the companies may claim. The stock board from Eclipse is excellent and really does not need to be changed.

Agreed. PE's stock electronics package is first rate, even the older models were/are excellent and provide more adjustments and parameters than most players will ever need. As a "for example" I had a stock '06 Ego, around the time the Rate of Fire changes came up in '07-'08, many people were up in arms because they needed their electronics updated to be in line with the rules changes. I put my gun into programming mode and turned the ROF down to the prescribed number.

There's no reason you should need to change the board out of an '08, unless you just want to. Just take a few minutes to learn the new programming interface, which is also fairly simple on PE's LCD boards, and you'll be gravy.

Generally no, but there are exceptions. IE a PMR with a UL frame can use many different UL frame boards.

question 2 is if i can't do that. can different years of the gun use the same board? like an ego 08 and an ego 11?

Same as above, generally not but you would have to check the models and years.


my next one is about the forums. i see people going : dodgy : and : tup : what does that mean? lol

Already answered in previous posts


that's all i have to ask.
