V2.0/V2.5 Asteria boards (Neopixel Blade and Smoothswing 2019 models)

How to setup or configure other blade effects:
Under each bank, there are .bg / .ft / .tg files in each sub folder such as Blaster, Clash etc. 
There is also a blade effects zipped file in the main directory, by unzipping the blade effects file you will see all possible .bg/.tg/.ft formats.
These files affect the blade. 
Feel free to try them out and then copy the one you would like to preset overwriting the old files in the sub folders. 
If .bg ensure that all .bg files in the sub folder(s) are overwritten and the same. 
.bg = blade styles
.ft and .tg are effects that affect the blade styles
