Custom Programmed WAS 2k2 board? Video inside!

Hey everyone,

So I got this WAS firmware equilizer V2.8 board in earlier today, and when I tested it I get a custom programmed screen during bootup. It shows "Gary Aparacio" and some numbers on the screen.

I was wondering first off if this meant anything to anyone (was he a pro player or known for something, or just an everyday owner who programmed it, or unknown?)

I haven't checked it for any other custom modes or anything.

Also, how was this done? As in how was this added to the program?

Thanks! Very curious on this one.

I believe that when you flash the WAS board, you can choose to make it display your name. At the bottom of the board there's a tiny 4-pin connector used for flashing the board to more recent versions, so it's all done through that interface with a special tool from WAS. At this point though, very few people have that tool so it's not a very consumer friendly "mod".

(I could be wrong about some things, but I think that's about right)

2.8 is a semi only board unless you flash it to 2.9 but then it won't support the LCD.

You would need the equallink cable and WAS programmer.

Well it says 2.8 on the video unless i'm going crazy.

So what does that mean?

Essentially the latest version is 2.9, and that board is 2.8, so if you updated it to 2.9 you wouldn't have the LCD.

On the other hand, you could theoretically keep 2.8 and use an equalink cable and a WAS programmer only to customize the name that displays on the LCD screen when you boot up the gun.

2.9 is the desired version since it has ramping. If you end up getting it to 2.9 the was equalizer board manual is the one that is used for the evil pimp.

Okay, I was going to guess that this was just about any regular name and nothing special!

So the WAS boards (2.8 and earlier) allowed for custom programming if you had an equalink cable. I used to put my name in there and all sorts of stuff. It's just a previous owner, as you've already surmised.

As stated earlier, it's an option given by programming with the equalink cable.

I have a cable and could re-program it to not display a name/number, display your name/number, and or upgrade it to 2.9.

I've programmed WAS boards for lots of people on here and do it for free. Just PM me if you would like me to do it.
