Post One bad Joystick controller to Cortex problem
We have the new Cortex with the sample remote control program but we are getting no movement out of the bot. Everything has power and we are using the Natural language to send it out to the Cortex. Also I am loaded with Cortex blocks and a few controllers and VexNet Wi-Fi keys to go with them so I would like to be able to fix this problem and repeat to all other controllers.

Yes the motors are in the right ports
Yes I did map the ports
Task main ()
{
While (1 = 1)
Motor (prot2) = VexRT(ch2)
Motor (prot3) = VexRT(ch3)
{

It is one of the samples programs so if I messed up when typing it in here then I'm sorry but I know the code is right.

Also I can see the Green light on my cortex and controller are paired with the A - A cable... but can't pair when the VEXnet Keys are plugged in.


Thank you thank you but only if you can help my quickly. My students are getting done with all the basic programing and now ready to get a controller and have some fun.

I'd recommend going through the tutorials in the VEX Cortex Video Trainer, particularly the Remote Control section: http://www.education.rec.ri.cmu.edu/pro ... index.html

Ok thanks..., I have been using that to help but I have gotten the bot working once before but then we got more and I can't get the others to work. DO I send the master Firmware updates using the Vex Cortex 2.0 platform or the Natural Language Platform?? Does the Code go in using Cortex 2.0 or Natural Language?
