It is when you open your trench coat standing in front of your board

j/k it updates the software for current settings such as rate of fire cap debounce etc. something that you need to send your board into the manufactuer to have done

Virtue and Tadao will flash/update it for free (tadao has to charge so its a penny or something but anyways...) idk about the other companies but those do for sure, most stock boards in guns usually go down to about 10bps anyways and have semi, psp 3 shot ramp, and nxl full auto

Yeap. They just update the software. Scenario Dreams, for example, if you want your board flashed, it's free you just pay the $4 for shipping back.

re:

on the board is a flash rom that holds the programing.when you talk about flashing it your talking about connecting it to a rom reader/pc and reprograming it. if it done wrong you brick the board (kill it).
