Your marker and your other loader take 9 volt batteries - the Empire B2 uses a 4AA or 6AA battery pack. I'm guessing you are trying to power the Empire with a single 9 volt battery?
The Empire battery pack may attach to the loader via a 9 volt battery connector, but you are not meant to use a single 9 volt battery with it. This will severely underpower the loader, which is the source of your problem.
Even though a 6AA pack has the same voltage as a 9 volt battery, an AA battery is considerably larger than the six AAAA cells inside the 9 volt battery. This means that they have much greater capacity than the 9 volt battery, and can provide more current to power your loader (power is calculated by multiplying current and voltage, so more current at the same voltage equals more power).
To give you an idea of the difference, a rechargeable 9 volt battery has a capacity between 200-300mAh, whereas the capacity of a re-chargeable AA battery can be as high as 3200mAh. That makes for a huge difference in battery life and power available.
The HALO/Empire B loaders are intended for use with multiple alkaline or lithium AA batteries.
It's just like a battle zone, you got a bottle and you're on your own.
Gotta be a Scotch or a Kamikaze, none of those other weapons will faze me.
Hundred, hundred, hundred bottles on the wall, you wonder if you can drink them all.
Got to go home by 1am, the bottle wins the battle again.
