I'd say this new technological terror you've constructed is insignificant next to the power of the Force... but I'd be wrong. This is awesome. Keep up the good work Emory and everyone at Ultrasabers!

There's a new diamond launcher. There's a forum post for it, you'll need to have the Diamond Controller plugged in while installing the new launcher so all the correct drivers install.

Quick notes on my experience on Diamond Controller:

1) Reading through the forum for 10 minutes on Gorobulus' and karaokefreak's early-adopter experiences were worthwhile.  I avoided wasting a lot of time trying to create a 7 s length pulse mode, for one thing.

2) Following the instructions, I had fresh batteries in my saber and plugged in the diamond board into USB on my Windows 10 laptop, and installed the launcher with ease. 

3) Opening the launcher, at first it gave an error message that it could not detect my saber.  Unplug + Replug the USB (which was fully connected the first time - so there is some minor software bug on first launch?) After this, it connects to my Diamond EH and begins reading the default font files off the saber.

4) Next I tried to save an existing font onto my computer.  Check. (This post isn't a tutorial, but maybe I'll make one down the line once I get the hang of it...)

5) Then I tried loading that font into a different font slot.  I overwrote 'Ancient Saber' with my custom Obsidian (default) font.  Success, first time.

6) Then I tried editing the 'idle' mode for this Obsidian clone.  I could test the saber color, could create a flicker over 0.25 seconds with five points, and then repeat 28 times to loop it.  YEEESSSSSS!!!!  Check.

7) Able to save this font to the board and exit the launcher, disconnect the saber, and test it out.  CHECK!!!

*Note: my background is quite ideal for this software.  I am an Electrical Engineer who has messed with a lot of hardware, software, and a little firmware.  So, I would not gauge my experiences with the Diamond Controller as the 'average trial'.  That being said, I did not do anything extremely complicated to make this work on my computer or saber.  The depth of features is indeed Deep (forgive the forum pun) but this is an advantage in the long haul.  The desire for a quick & easy FOC / flicker / pulse setup option is understandable, though.

Wish I could get me a new first and only Diamond saber but all of them are now too much especially with sound x.x I want me a Graflex Diamond so badly. Have a quick power on as seen in The Force Awakens would be sweet with it

OK so my first Saber has an up  obsidian soundboard  I ordered my in  emperors handwith the  Diamond  control   .First let me point out the diamond controller is way more  sensitive to movement over the obsidian  the obsidian   set to 100% for movement 90% of the time you get a swing  .let me justify that if you swing it slowly or just kind of waving it around 90% of the time it'll play a sound .  With the Diamond controller  if you move the motion sensitivity up to 100% slightest movement will make a swing sound I found A setting of 70 to 75% is just right .
   Next thing  I would like to point out is  the  illuminated AV switch   It has its own channel and  can be configured to dim, flash, blink, at any speed  you like  up to but not change color   .oh and how I like this !  And when the saber is off. So is the AV switch light  . 
  Mastering the newly added  jester moves will keep you motivated to learn them .  If you find you do not like them you can always make your own,got to love that  . So that's that   I liked it so much ordered the scorpion with the diamond controller in it

How do I lower the time it takes to turn off the saber, and how do I remove the random gestures/effects that have come pre-loaded?

The time to turn the saber off cannot be adjusted, and you can remove the gestures by going onto the Ultrasabers Launcher with your saber plugged in and deleting the saved gestures/effects. From there you can input your own. New gestures have to be physically programmed.

This is one thing I wish could be changed. I'd like it take less time to turn the saber off. I have no use for lockup effects.

Just to clarify - can an illuminated AV switch be set to off? In the computer menu or what?

Try going to 'Board config' in the Launcher and disable all Accent LEDs.

Thanks, I don't have one yet. I just wanted to make sure it's an option so I don't get one and it's permanently on. How does the battery indicator work?
