If you are using OsX Maverics you will have to wait for an update of the Vanquish tool. When they released Maverics they erased a system file the program needed.

If you are using any other version you should make sure you have the latest Vanquish USB tool from paintballsolutions.com/empire under SOFTWARE section. Then when you open the .dmg file you should drag and drop it onto your computer (either in the applications folder or desktop or wherever you'd like)

I don't have a good estimate on timeline as of now. Should in be Q1 of this year.
My advice is to go to your local paintball shop and have them do it or find a person with a windows computer. It only takes a couple minutes.

OK so i downloaded everything from PBSolutions. I opened and unzipped it all. I connected the USB. All i heard was a quiet double low ding of a device being connected but not loudly. Looked at the device in device managment and saw no drivers. Then i followed the steps one by one but the pdf from PBS says:
"
Windows 7 Manual Install
1) With Vanquish connected to USB Port go to Start > Control Panel
2) Select "Hardware and Sound"
3) At the next screen select "Device Manager" under "Devices and Printers"
4) In the device manager window under "Other Devices" there should be a device with a
name similar to "FT232" with a yellow warning symbol next to it indicating the driver is
not installed Right click this to bring up a small menu
5) Select "Update Driver Software"
6) Next select "Browse my computer for driver software"
7) Browse to the USB Driver folder in the Vanquish PC Software Folder. (Typically
located in C:\Documents and Settings\*Windows User Name*\Vanquish PC
Software\USB Drivers). This should install "USB Serial Converter" which is the first
driver
8) To install the second driver repeat steps 4-6. This should install USB Serial Port"

When i get to number 7 there is nothing found in my folder from PBS called the USB Driver folder in the Vanquish PC Software Folder. In fact it doesnt even come up as a choice. Where is the driver at? Also my firmware is still 105 not 108. I have that driver but cannot hand load it without the softwasre which i cannot connect as the usb isnt working...wth? Anyone have this fix or am i just PC stupid today?

The folder is located where the program was installed on your PC. Not in the file downloaded from paintball solutions. If you installed in the default location it will be on your main hard drive like it says in the instructions above. Let me know if you can't find it.
