It doesn't really matter if it's an NXT, SFT, or Nerver board. They can all be NOX flashed for $35
in order to support break beam eyes. Plus I'm trying to do a cheap proof of concept. The plan was to try it, see if it works, then pick up a more expensive OLED board.
I'm aware of the differences between the NME eyes and shocker eyes. I would probably modify the existing eyes from my NME to connect to Shocker board (custom wiring harness). I'm fairly certain this would work. The other thought as I mentioned previously was to modify the shocker eyes in the fashion you described to fit the NME. I would probably have to de-solder them from the ribbon cable (don't think it's long enough) and use a custom wiring harness.
I wasn't aware of the Scenario Dreams Universal T-board. I just googled it and found all the info. Looks nice. It's small too. No doubt it would fit in the NME frame. Best of all it's cheap! Only $55!
If I had known about that previously I would probably have done that. But I already have all the shocker parts on the way. Maybe I'll order one or two for my other NME's thought. Thanks telling me about it, it would be a whole lot easier!
The only advantage to doing the shocker mod at this point is that if it works I can pick up a Virtue OLED board (I've seen them for as cheap as $135) and have a nice board with a display. I personally love OLED boards because I hate trigger programming. I have 10 guns and I can never remember the differences in order to program them and have to dig out the manual. It's a pain in the ***. OLED solves this. I've already put Tadao OLED boards in my Timmys, my Vice, and my Autococker. Would love to have one in my NMEs as well! Then I'll just have to figure out what to do about the Angel G7. I'm thinking of trying to fit an A1 OLED board in the frame and if that doesn't work fitting an A1 frame on it. I guess that's for another forum... I digress...
