Xenopixel V2 - Sounds - Customisation
This page is to help you with customising your Xenopixel V2 (Eco) saber.
Before attempting this, please do know that by customising your saber you will void any warranty you have and also note that we do not offer support on Xenopixel V2 board editing.
Please also create a back up of all original files that are installed on your saber before replacing or editing any them.
Converting sounds over to work with Xenopixel can take some patience, but is not a difficult process. At this time, conversion must be done manually.
Accessing your SD card:
1) Remove the grip and pommel to access your XenoPixel chassis.
2) Carefully remove the battery. This can be done by lightly tapping the end of the chassis against your hand. Remember the chassis is marked with positive (+) and negative (-) ends. Ensure on reinserting the battery that the positive and negative ends line up correctly.
3) Locate the micro SD card in the chassis. Be sure to note the orientation to make re-installation easier.
4) Carefully remove the micro SD card. Use your fingers or tweezers. Do not force the card upward or downward, as this could damage the connector.
Add or edit sound files:
The font folder must be numbered sequentially. Xenopixel will not read folders with names. For example if you have folder 31, 32, 33 you would need to name the next folder 34.
You won’t likely have to edit any sound files from existing popular soundfont formats, such as Proffie or CFX, but you will have to remove some files, and rename others.
When creating a new folder and numbering it, you can copy all of the files from the previous folder to know what file names to use.
They will look like the files shown below.
The above example shows Xenopixel accepted sound file types (.wav). Although the example only shows a maximum of 2 for each sound, you can add many more sounds (tested up to 16). Windows 10 will automatically number renamed files of the same name, making converting multiple files of the same sound type much easier.
Edit motion controls, pixel length, default font colours & other options:
If you want to edit the motion controls, the pixel length, the default colours for fonts, the start up and shut down times, clash sensitivity or volume, then you can do this by going to the 'set' folder and opening the 'config' file.
The config file has brief descriptions and instructions on how to change each of these when open.
Once you have created any new fonts, edited any existing fonts or changed the config file (& saved it), safely remove your SD card and reinsert it in to the saber.
Please remember to make a back up of all files before any editing.
