Re: Ideas for Cheesy Arena 2018

Thanks everyone for your ideas so far. To summarize, here are the changes that we will endeavor to make, in rough priority order:
  • A-stop
  • New sound effects, and different ones for each power up type
  • Just played/active/queued power ups on audience display
  • Better alliance selection screen, as mocked up
  • Option for reversing alliances on the audience display on a per-instance basis (though Chezy Champs would *never* put a camera on the scoring table side)
  • Leave scale/switch LEDs on solid for a few seconds post-match
  • Avatars
  • Mobile-optimized web page with FTA Notebook features
  • Screen for indicating cycle time / other information valuable to reset/queuers

Any suggestions on the switch/scale LED patterns (for randomization, owned, not owned, boosted, forced, etc.)? We don't plan to have ownership indicators on the audience overlay since they take up a lot of real estate, so it should ideally be very clear at all times from the full-field camera view.
