Infrared Protocol Packet
Name LTAR-GAME
PType 0x81
PData Count 12
Sent By Host

Only the LTAR supports enhanced games.

The Announce Enhanced Game packet is sent by the host at 1.5 second intervals (from start to start) until it receives a Request Join Game Enhanced packet from a joining tagger.

Note that unlike the standard Announce Game packet, the Announce Enhanced Game packet uses binary values, not binary coded decimal.

  • PData0—Game ID
  • PData1—Game length (1–99 minutes, 0xFF for unlimited)
  • PData2—Health (1–99 tags, 0xFF for unlimited)
  • PData3—Reload ammo (0–990 rounds, 0xFFFF for unlimited, least significant byte)
  • PData4—Reload ammo (0–990 rounds, 0xFFFF for unlimited, most significant byte)
    • Note that the reload ammo is the number of rounds, not the number of reloads. A value of 32 results in 3 reloads of 10 rounds and 1 reload of 2 rounds.
