The Intimidator board (finally!) gets rid of the membrane pad altogether, replacing it with a new back plate and two button contacts.
The Yakuza Series for the Bob Long Intimidator is the first aftermarket circuit board to include a graphical OLED based display system. OLED (organic light emitting diode) displays have numerous advantages over traditional LCDs. They have lower power consumption, higher contrast, and, due to the manufacturing process, are sealed, making them highly resistant to vibration and moisture. Unlike LCDs, each pixel of an OLED screen is a light emitting diode, and emits its own light. This makes power consumption directly proportional to how many pixels are lit, making it easy to view even in direct sunlight.
All the necessary information is shown on the OLED screen, including eye status, battery life, current fire mode and max rate of fire, and a game timer. The settings are also easily adjusted through the full text based menu system.
The Yakuza software takes a major step forward over the last iteration of Musashi. With all new hardware the asynchronous interrupt based trigger scan is monitored at 4 million times per second, with the microcontroller running at a full 16 Mhz. The fire modes have been consolidated, but include a few new adjustable parameters, giving even more flexbility than before. Notable settings include ramping percentage, screen text size, screen brightness, and settings profiles which can be used to save and load your settings for different formats and playing styles.
Also included is the new Anti-Breech Bounce software, which helps to eliminate chops when a loader is running low on paint and isn't capable of providing a steady feed rate. RF support is also present with the inclusion of a dedicated transmitter socket and wiring harness.
The circuit board is the most important part of any electronic paintball marker, and upgrading it can enhance all the performance characteristics. Tadao's leading edge Yakuza Series provides the user with the ultimate in adjustability and speed.
The Tadao Technologies Yakuza OLED Board for Gen3/Gen4 Framed Intimidator is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
