any idea what kind of board this is?

I bought this recently off eBay.

The card included with it says it's a Scenario Dreams T-Board, but I'm not so sure. It doesn't look anything like the diagram in the manual html on the card.

Also, I have no idea where to plug anything in. I need to plug in a battery, a solenoid, and a trigger switch, but there's six different options.

Looks a lot like the board for an E-Spyder or similar sear tripping design. I think there was a version of the T board for Spyders, but I'm not sure how to tell it apart from a stock one.

Virtue Spyder board for reference:



And a bit of Google searching shows this for a Sypder Tboard:

It's definitely for some kind of Spyder clone, but I don't think it's a T-Board. When I downloaded the installation instructions, the diagram for the board looked like this. Clearly different.

I think I can still use the board, but I'm hesitant to just start plugging things in randomly. I'm hoping someone's seen this before and can point me in the right direction so I know how to properly attach the sear, battery, etc.

More pictures.

Upon closer inspection, I found labels on the back for the solenoid, trigger, etc. I feel pretty dumb for missing these before. So now I can at least get the board to power up. However, I still can't get it to fire a solenoid. I only want to connect a battery, solenoid, and trigger switch, but the board seems to want more than that. Not sure what else I can plug in, though. I don't have any eyes. And even if I did, I'm not sure if I should plug them into AUX, VAL A, or VAL B.

I would suggest putting a voltmeter on the AUX pins and seeing if it's just a digital signal coming through there. If so, I would try shorting it on the assumption the board is waiting for the eyes to see something.

Hmm....guess I need to get a voltmeter, then.

Assuming the AUX is for eyes, how do I short it out? Connect both pins to the same wire?

Probally, but you might get an eye error, depending on how smart the board is. Most of the new boards look for a slight break in the signal, because it knows that there should be a small gap of open space.

You can always turn off the eyes, when you turn the board on.

Yeah, I thought of that, but I can't figure out how to do it yet. I've tried all the normal tricks (powering on with trigger held, tapping or holding the mode button, etc). This is why I'm really hoping someone can ID the board so I can find the actual manual for it online. That will save a ton of guesswork.
