The firmware hasn't been rev'd yet since it is in poor shape after the last change. Previously, the received data was a string of eight hex bytes, now it is a list of four decimal values with spaces between them and a header of '00' to designate it as an infrared signal.

Values were meant to be extracted by looking in the same place each time so the full array was mapped out, forward and backward. At this point, my inexperience with Python should be obvious.

Many functions of a working game are now in place. A player can be hit by another for any amount of damage, a tagger is disabled until it is reactivated by the player, when the health drops below zero the tagger is disabled with no way for the players to reactivate themselves. It should be possible to cobble a working game from this code but it wouldn't be streamlined so more work will be put in to make stronger firmware and to release a usable game.
