Re: Importing LEGO models into Blender/etc for rigging/anima

That's some pretty neat work you've done there. I remember importing some of my LDraw models into Blender. I was never motivated to do much other than correct the colors and set the camera and lighting up for a render though. That's very impressive that you had the patience to rig the model up. I'm ...

Re: Controlling RCX with Windows 7 PC

Sorry if this is a bit late... That's probably because the Windows 7 computers you're using are running 64-bit operating systems, which is something the USB tower doesn't play well with. A workaround for this is to install a virtual machine. As for which VM software to use, I recommend VirtualBox , ...

Re: Is this forum dying and is that a bad thing?

It indeed does appear that this forum is dying. To be fair, it was never very active to begin with. At least, compared to a lot of other forums out there. We've always been a very small community. Still, it's plain to see that this place isn't as lively as it was back in 2011. And yes, very ironic g...

Arcade Machine

Hey guys. My LEGO MINDSTORMS building career is about to come to an end. I've been getting older, getting busier, gaining other hobbies, and simply haven't been able to set aside as much time for LEGO MINDSTORMS as I used to. It is for this reason that the project you see here will likely be my last...

Re: HaydenStudios LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT Sumo Competition

Hey guys... In case any of you were wondering, this competition isn't going to happen. The reason for this being that I didn't get any entries. I got one yes and another maybe from some other guys, but then I didn't hear from them. I kind of thought this might happen, but another part of me wanted t...

Re: HaydenStudios LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT Sumo Competition

How many NXT bricks do you actually have? Just the two from the sets? That's right, just two NXTs, one from a 1.0 set, and another from a 2.0 set. Hence, why I limited entries to one NXT each. I may be able to help with the replicating and testing robots, if you need it. I have five NXTs, and more ...

HaydenStudios LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT Sumo Competition

Lsx4J2JhofQ Hello fellow LEGO builders! It's been a while! As you may know, the EV3 is coming out this Fall, which will eventually give the NXT the RCX's current status as the previous generation of LEGO MINDSTORMS. And when the EV3 takes the spotlight, my MINDSTORMS building career will come to an...

Re: LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Announced

Oh goodness, it looks like this one will be powered by six AA batteries as well. For the RCX, 6 AA batteries was okay, but the NXT seriously eats them up quickly from my experience, even if I'm using Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries and Bluetooth is off. I'm guessing the EV3 will simply devour b...

Re: Unable to properly concatenate strings

Sorry for the late reply, been real busy with school work and only just got enough free time to try this out. I know this is a bit of a bump, but I don't want this thread to come across as useless. After following your instructions, it's now working. Thanks for you help, John!

Unable to properly concatenate strings

I am currently having a problem with NXC where I am trying to write a string on the NXT. I have the user select which character he/she wants, enter it, and then it adds the current character onto the current string. The problem I am having is that for some reason, the program is not correctly concat...
