New Firmware Testing

I just wanted to give a quick update that I have started to test GFX with a new version of the Opensprints firmware. I have actually had this version of the Opensprints firmware in hand since April but have not had a chance to work with it. I am still hopeful that we can have a major GFX upgrade this summer yet.

The main focus of implementing the new firmware is to eliminate the dreaded race ties that many of you should be familiar with. Once that hurdle is eliminated I can then look at adding a few other requested features. I am not sure I have any specific requests documented but if you have any new feature requests feel free to post a comment below.

I should also have an update to the install instructions. The guys at Opensprints have been doing a great job of keeping those updated.

GFX Poll: Events and Rostering

I am in the middle of a GFX update to support the newest version of the Opensprints firmware. Realizing how much code is involved in the roster and event features of GFX I wonder if anyone is using it these days.

So, help me out by answering the poll below and feel free to post a question if you have any. I will also use this to see how is even still using the software.

China’s Goldsprints Revolution 3

So I am watching a video on the Revolution 3 event in China. Guess what I saw? Goldsprints FX of course! The video below is the official video from the event. The roller racing starts off about the 7 minute mark. Keep your eyes open for shots of GFX in action. Thanks to Shannon for letting me know she continues to use GFX and the OpenSprints hardward. She is really building a great goldsprints community over there!
