Starting with ROBOTC 3.61 BETA, users now have the option to create custom joystick configurations inside of ROBOTC. This allows a wider variety of joysticks to be used with ROBOTC (such as the XBOX 360 controller) and also allows users to set custom configurations for existing controllers. This functionality can be used with the VEX Cortex, LEGO NXT/TETRIX, and Robot Virtual Worlds.
Watch our tutorial video to setup your joystick for ROBOTC:
The joystick settings are currently universal across all joysticks and changes made to one particular joystick’s configuration may not work for other joysticks.
Note that the custom controller configuration options cannot be used in an FTC competition, due to the way the Field Control System (FCS) handles joystick controls.
ROBOTC is the premiere robotics programming language for educational robotics and competitions. ROBOTC is a C-Based Programming Language with an Easy-to-Use Development Environment. ROBOTC 3.61 contains three major updates, as shown in the changelog below.
