Sound to me like you keep locking and unlocking your tournament mode.
Pages 8-12 should help you out. The extcy black heart board works the same as your envy does.
Most paintball tournaments, scenario games and fields have rules which do not allow a player to make adjustments that can affect velocity (such as dwell) or change firing mode settings during a game. These rules require that a marker be locked so that such adjustments can not be made without using tools, which are not allowed on-field.
To lock or unlock the eXTCyTM, following the battery replacement directions in this manual, remove the wraparound rubber grip, unplug and remove the marker’s 9-volt battery. Hold down the trigger while plugging the battery back in. The power LED will light red to indicate that the Blackheart board is locked, or green to indicate that it has been unlocked. Repeat the procedure to lock or unlock the marker.
ENTERING PROGRAMMING MODE
Changes are made to the eXTCyTM’s electronic settings in programming mode. To enter programming mode, press the power button to turn on the marker while pressing and holding the trigger back. Once in programming mode, pull the trigger to cycle through the available parameters, which are indicated by the color and blinking of the power button LED. If the marker will not switch into programming mode, the eXTCyTM is locked. The board will need to be unlocked before changes can be made.
When the desired parameter is selected, enter its new value by pulling and holding the trigger until the power LED turns off, then pulling the trigger a number of times corresponding to the desired setting. The LED will blink a number of times to confirm the new value that has been set. To exit programming mode, press the power button, turning the marker off.
FIRING MODES (Power Button LED Glows solid red) - Sets Firing Mode:
1 - Semi-Automatic: This mode fires one shot per trigger pull, as fast as the trigger is pulled. The BPS cap has no effect on Semi-Automatic mode. This is the default firing mode for the eXTCyTM.
2. Capped Semi-Automatic: This mode operates the same as semi-automatic, but is limited by the BPS Cap setting.
3. NXL: Fires one shot per trigger pull until the trigger is pulled three times in quick succession, at which point it operates as if in fully automatic mode, firing repeatedly as fast as the VisionTM and BPS Cap will allow, until the trigger is released for a moment, at which point the cycle begins again firing one shot per trigger pull.
4. PSP: Fires one shot per trigger pull until the trigger is pulled three times in quick succession at which point it switches into a ramping mode firing more than one shot per trigger pull while the player pulls the trigger repeatedly. After one second of inactivity PSP mode reverts to its beginning single shot per pull operation.
5. Millennium: Fires one shot per trigger pull until the trigger is pulled at a rate of 8 times per second or faster, at which point it begins firing more than one shot per trigger pull. When the user pulls the trigger at rates below 8 times per second, Millennium mode reverts to firing one shot per trigger pull. 6. CFOA: Fires one shot per trigger pull until the trigger is pulled three times at a rate of 5.5 times per second or faster at which point more than one ball is fired per trigger pull, until the rate of trigger pulls drops below 5.5 per second, at which point CFOA mode reverts to firing 1 shot per trigger pull. 7. Auto Response: Fires on both the pull and release of trigger.
8. Select Fire: Allows for in-game selection between semi-automatic, burst and full-automatic firing modes without the use of tools, during a game. When using Select Fire mode, the power button LED will indicate which of the three modes is operational. The LED will glow solid for semi-automatic, blink slowly for burst mode or rapidly for full-automatic. Pressing the power button quickly will cycle through the three modes.
9. Burst: Fires a user selected number of shots each time the trigger is pulled and held.
10. Full-Automatic: Fires when the trigger is pulled and continues firing repeatedly at a rate defined by the BPS Cap and VisionTM system until the trigger is released.
11. ReboundTM: Begins firing one shot per trigger pull, but begins firing more than one shot per trigger pull as the player pulls the trigger more rapidly, reverting to one shot per trigger pull when the rate of trigger pulls decreases.
12. Billy-BallTM: This mode restricts eXTCyTM’s rate of fire to make it less intimidating to new paintball players, or create an even playing field with pump-action paintguns. Billy-BallTM also can be used by experienced players to train for reliance on stealth, accuracy and movement instead of of rate of fire.
NOTE: THE UK VERSION OF THE EXTCYTM IS LIMITED TO THE FOLLOWING MODES: 1 SEMI- AUTOMATIC, 2 CAPPED SEMI, 3 MILLENNIUM, 4 BILLY BALLTM
VISIONTM (Power Button LED glows solid green) - Sets how the VisionTM system operates:
1. Classic: The marker will not fire unless there is a ball in the breech, breaking the VisionTM beam. This is the default VisionTM mode.
2. Delayed: If the breech is empty when the trigger is pulled, the marker will wait up to 1⁄2 second for a ball to load before the marker fires. At the end of the delay period, the eXTCyTM will fire, even if no paintball is detected. Delayed mode effectively allows the eXTCyTM to fire “blind” at a reduced rate of fire if the VisionTM system is fouled by debris or paint.
3. Forced Delay: This mode works the same as the Classic VisionTM mode, but may also fire when the breech is empty, by holding the trigger down for a full second. Forced delay mode allows for easy de-gassing of the eXTCyTM without having to switch VisionTM off.
DWELL: (Power Button LED glows solid yellow) - Adjusts how long the solenoid valve is held open to fire each shot. Dwell is adjustable from 5 to 65 milliseconds in 1 millisecond increments. Raising dwell can improve shot to shot consistency and protect against shoot-down (drops in velocity when rapid firing). These symptoms are most common when using CO2 as a power source. Raising the dwell higher than necessary can reduce the eXTCyTM’s maximum rate of fire by causing the bolt to stay forward longer than necessary. The recommended dwell settings on the right are selected to allow the highest possible rates of fire while maintaining reliable operation. Also, when using a 9.6 volt rechargeable battery and HPA, lower dwell times may used to extend battery life. When experimenting with lowered dwell settings, velocity drop-off during rapid firing, skipped shots or first-shot drop-off are all signs that the dwell must be increased.
BPS Cap: (Power Button LED blinks fast red) - In all firing modes except semi-automatic and Billy- BallTM, this setting limits the eXTCyTM’s maximum rate of fire. BPS cap is adjustable from 4 to 20 balls per second in 1 bps increments. The default value is 13 bps.
BPS Fine Adjust: (Power Button LED blinks fast green) - This parameter allows for fine-tuning of the BPS cap by adding a small value to it. Settings from 1 to 9 add from 0.1 to 0.9 bps to the BPS Cap. For example, setting BPS Cap to 13, and BPS Fine Adjust to 2, will result in a maximum rate of fire of 13.2 bps. The default BPS Fine Adjust setting is 0.
Burst Count: (Power Button LED blinks fast yellow) - This selects the number of shots fire per trigger pull when the maker is in burst mode. The burst number may be set to values between 2 and 4 shots. The default Burst Count value is 3 shots.
Pulls To Enter (Power Button LED blinks slowly red) - For ReboundTM mode, the Pulls To Enter determines how many times the trigger must be pulled before marker ramps up to more than one shot per trigger pull. Pulls to enter may be set between 1 and 6 pulls per second.
Enter Rate (Power Button LED blinks slowly green) - For ReboundTM mode, the Enter Rate dermines how frequently the trigger must be pulled before the marker ramps up to more than one shot per trigger pull. Enter rate may be set between 4 and 12 trigger pulls per second.
Sustain Rate (Power Button LED blinks slowly yellow) - For ReboundTM mode, the Sustain Rate dermines how frequently the trigger must be pulled to continue ramping more than one shot per trigger pull after ramping has begun. Systain rate may be set between 1 and 10 trigger pulls per second.
FSDO Compensation: (Power Button LED blinks slowly red and green) - When a marker rests, its bolt may stick in position and cause a low-velocity shot the next time it is fired. This is known as First Shot Drop-Off, or FSDO. FSDO Compensation increases the dwell time of the first shot of a group, providing additional time to break friction between the breech and the bolt’s o-rings before the bolt moves forward. FSDO Compensation may be adjusted from zero (off) to 15 milliseconds in 1 millisecond increments. When the marker rests for 20 seconds or more, the next shot fired will have the FSDO Compensation value added to its dwell time. The default FSDO setting is 20 milliseconds.
VisionTM Hardware: (Power Button LED blinks slowly yellow and green) - This setting provides compatibility between the eXTCyTM circuit board and other markers. By default this setting will be 1, for use with the eXTCyTM’s wired VisionTM eyes. A setting of 2 would be used for compatibility with circuit board style VisionTM eyes, such as those used for upgrade on the G-1TM and eNVyTM.
