Also looking for a driver for 6v emitters, but

I am also looking for a driver for MT-G2 emitters but as I have been studying driver a bit and as I am not trying to make a blaster thrower, I am looking for more efficiency, less heat and run time and (I think it is called ramping) .
So do we have in the bowels of “oshpark” or other “secret” BLF dungeon a “current controlled, Buck with no (perceivable) PWN that has smooth ramping up and down? looking for 4+ to 6 amps at the emitter max range driven from 3S cells.
My understanding is that the “go to drivers” are liner or direct drive with a zener mods”.
I found this thread, I can almost follow it, but not really.

Oshpark Projects

Post your MT-G2 driver results here.

I am aware of these three postes but I am failing to find what I am looking for,

I think we’re still at the stage of using an Attiny to impose our will on existing buck drivers.

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?
