Re: NXT Shooting Gallery

I'm sure he could, but then you would be stuck at a cable length from the targets, and not challenged by wireless communication! I like it! Those are indeed the reasons for using two bricks. I had never experimented with NXT <-> NXT via bluetooth before (with NXC). Turns out to be remarkably straig...

NXT Graffiti Writer

This doesn't really qualify as a project, with the little time and effort that I spent on it, but it was a fun way to pass some time during the summer holidays when the weather wasn't so flash.

Re: Invalid Security Certificate

Sure, me too. But if these forums are to be revived and thrive we need old members returning and welcome new ones. Getting a security warning won't be encouraging for them. Besides that, it should be standard practice to maintain a valid security certificate.

Re: BricxCC won't re-compile

Or switch to leJOS / Java. It's quite a paradigm shift but development is very active, and the documentation, wiki and community support are great.

I needed to quickly test something on an NXT so installed Bricx/NXC and the drivers, Bricx would not find the NXT. Tried a few different things without suc...
