We have recently been made aware of a bug in the samostat.c program in ROBOTC 3.60 that is preventing it from displaying the correct information on the NXT screen. Due to this bug being discovered at the beginning of the FTC Worlds Championship, we are making this easy fix public knowledge instead of pushing out an update. To fix the samostat.c program bug, simply follow the steps below:
1) Open the samostat.c program in ROBOTC by navigating to the ‘File -> Open Sample Program -> Samantha Module -> samostat.c’ program file.
2) Navigate to the ‘nxtDisplayTextLine(status.nLine, “%s”, status.message);‘ line in task main (line 69 by default). Add an ampersand (&) to the ‘status.message‘ and change it to ‘&status.message‘ (no quotation marks).
3) Save the file to finalize the changes and make sure to compile and download it to your NXT brick.
We apologize for any inconveniences this may have cause. Please email our support team directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you encounter any other issues or bugs.
