So, I am at an event with my students. We actually compete tomorrow and I am wondering if I am the ONLY RobotC user here as most are using EASY-C. Anyway, I have filled in the competition template and I have only THREE yellow "x"s during the compile. Is that OK? They are as follows.

Line 14: #pragma platform(VEX)
Line 11.178: static void UserControlCodePlaceholderForTesting()
Line 11.190: static void AuonomousCodePlaceholderForTesting()

*Warning*:"#Pragma platform <list>" is deprecated. It has been replaced with "#pragma config(platform, <list.)"
*Warning*:Unreferenced function 'UserControlCodePlaceholderForTesting'
*Warning*:Unreferenced function 'AuonomousCodePlaceholderForTesting'

They are yellow, will these work when hooked up to their VEXNey system

I would avoid using the
#pragma platform

Use the Robot->Platform Type menu instead.
As for the last two warnings about the functions, they are safe to ignore, it just means you are not using them anywhere in your code, so they won't be compiled in.

Well, that is what I checked out and I hestitated to change my settings on RobotC. The platform is set to Cortex 2.0. In all of the documentation online, I don't even see "platform" mentioned. I wonder if I can simply comment it out.

Those yellow x's shouldn't mess anything up.

The last two say that there are place holder functions in the template that you're no longer using - perfectly fine. The first one appears because ROBOTC has a new way of signifying platform type - this also shouldn't mess anything up.

You can update to ROBOTC 3.04 to eliminate the first warning message.

Thanks a bunch. I DID update to 3.04 and it worked like a charm today. Well, at least the connections did. Can't say much for our robots. But we had fun regardless!

There are some things even a software update won't fix :) I am sure you guys will figure it out, though!
