What's a Proffie?

So you've decided to take your first steps into an even larger world of
near infinite customization! The Proffieboard is an open-source
lightsaber controller with various talented community developers
contributing to the project.

As a result it tends to be on the cutting edge of lightsaber feature development.

Our Proffie sabers are loaded with the button operations from the
developer Fett263. Below you can find some of the button operations for both 1
and 2 button sabers. For more in-depth operations please visit Fett263's site.

Customizing your Proffie

What will I need?

Before you start you'll want a few tools:

  • the Proffieboard
  • a computer
  • micro USB cable (with data transfer and charging)
  • micro SD card reader

Thankfully if you've purchased a custom installed Proffie saber from us we already provide the micro USB cable and micro SD card reader!

If you need extras we offer them in our store as well!

How do I customize it?

To configure a Proffie saber you'd want the "config" file. It's essentially a recipe of the mapping of sound fonts to blade styles for your saber, as well as how the blade and button wiring are set up for your specific saber.

If you have purchased a custom installed Proffie saber from us we have stored a copy of your saber's config file on the SD card in the Proffie as well as attached a digital copy to your purchase on the website. If you can't find it please reach out to us and provide us with your order number.

ProffieConfig

To configure the Proffieboard itself there is a useful desktop app developed by Ryryog25 in the community. This all in one tool guides you through all the steps of configuring your Proffie as well as uploading your changes to the Proffie

You can find the tool on GitHub here:
