I'll give it credit that some of the debugging features have been very handy.

A virtual debugger would be nice. :| Test code with out having to fuss with a bot.

I now leave RobotC open with the top level file and use Eclipse to edit the rest of the program...

Here, here; I use VS 2008. :D

Notice how there's really no forum for posting RobotC improvement ideas... :?

If people's connections aren't reliable then they should continue to pursue finding out why. There is a reason. Its not necessary just because its "inferior technology" that they should give up on.

It's a little hard to follow up on something when no error messages are givien let alone ones that give detailed information, like error codes, etc.; even putting an entry in the event logs would help.

Although we're completely off topic... I totally agree. This is pretty high on my list of things I'd like to get done this summer.

Probably more so for my Lego League teams... but an NXT simulator that can run the different firmwares would rock.

I'm hoping to make it so that programs like RobotC and the Lego Mindstorms Software think its a real NXT...not that this is an easy task but that's why its on the summer todo list.

Integrated also into M$ robotics studio or another simulator ... program - debug - test with no robot :) Of course robot and environment simulation for FTC becomes alot trickier (and potentially less useful) than FLL.

Bonzai, bonzai :!: :!: :bigthumb: . At least someone around here has an idea of what programming is supposed to be like. I really hope you can come up with something, it would be a big help for people who have limited space and want to code at home. :D

And as for off topic, so what if we digress a little, it's not as if there is a RobotC improvement forum. :D The program not the web site, I know that forum exists.

None of the above worked for me, but I found this (http://www.dataharvest.co.uk/faq_pages/pdf/faq_4.pdf) extremely helpful. :mrgreen:
