Tons of Tickets has a bundle reader utility that allows you to read the value that is stored with the RFID tag inside the ticket bundle. If the value on a tag does not match the values listed in the Pi software it will either cause the PI to reboot or display a red X on the screen.
When running the bundle reader program the Pi will load after the load screen the leave you at a prompt on the screen, holding a bundle over the antenna will show the value of the tag on the screen. The bundle values should be a repetitive number (i.e. 111111 , 222222, 141414, 151515.....) if you encounter a number that is not repetitive (i.e. 123456.....) then this is indicating the bundle is bad.
The Bundle reader program was incorporated in the game software revision 2.07 and higher and can be accessed by inserting a keyboard and doing the following:
1) With the game program running press "q" on the keyboard, this will drop you to a command prompt.
2) Type the following "python3 rfiRead.py" and press enter
3) Once you have completed reading your bundles power cycle the Pi
If your software version is below 2.07 you can update to the latest code by following the instructions on this link.
The bundle reader can also be downloaded and run as a stand alone program , click here to download the file.
