1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    ok I have seen a few people say they fancy having a go at making them
    I will have a look and see what bits I have lying about I quit making them cos I cant be arsed lol
    if I have the majority of bits lying about like the patch circuits pre made and the correct usb conversion cables and the jumper connectors for the combro
    and if there is enough interest I will sell the required bits and do a thread with destructions all you would need to get would be a short piece of multi core cable and a bit of minor soldering skills etc.
    If there is interest the required bits I will advertise and sell for £2 posted which is cheaper than you could get the bits for and circuit pre made

    I have started making one from the instructions HERE, not finished it yet as crap like work keeps getting in the way! You can buy them ready made HERE, but personally I like the challenge of trying not to blow up my combro :)

    ok ive had a look and I have enough for about 20 kits but you will have to do some soldering ( 6 solder joins) and some small crimping
    my only worry is I supply these kits and then people say they cant solder it or they don't have a small pair off needle nose pliers etc. to crimp
    the circuit [​IMG]
    where the colour wires go [​IMG]
    black lines where you would need to solder [​IMG]
    what you would need to crimp wires into [​IMG]
    what I would supply you with [​IMG] obviously not all of that lol

    1m usb cable with the correct protocols, 1 premade circuit, 1 bit of heat shrink to cover the circuit, 20cm ish of wire, and a few sets of combro connectors just incase ;)
    and some software and drivers on a disc am off to make a sales thread now that will have a link to this to warn ppl before buying

    Just incase you still need this:

    Crimp the plugs to one end of the short cable and put into plastic. Make sure this matches the picture.
    View attachment 124925
    Plug should look like this note the direction of the holes and the cables:

    View attachment 124926

    Cut the little plugs off the end of the USB cable. The red, white, black, and green (cut right off) are from the USB end. Lay them out as below.
    View attachment 124927

    Solder it all up as the other pictures.
