Re: NXTCam Generic I2C Firmware - where is it?

Hey Matt, In order to use the generic PIC firmware, you need an AVR firmware that is capable of working with it. Anyway, here's a zip file with the generic PIC firmware I was sent earlier this year.

Re: More specific forums

Having so many sub forums has the issue that it will take a LOT more work from admins to move posts around to the proper forums when they're not in the right spot. We have 76 members at the moment and not nearly enough posts to warrant this kind of sub dividing just yet.

Re: To admins, about dedicated server

The good thing about the sourceforge project is that there are 4 of us in charge of it, so should one of us decide to move to greener (or browner) pastures, the other 3 can continue without a problem. It's better for everyone that way. Use an adblocker if you don't want to see the ads, I do and it w...

Re: Restaurate the old forum content?

The only people with copies are Aplus hosting who won't give us the data and then there's Google Cache.

We have to consider the data lost.

Steve,

I think what he meant was can you make a block that uses an opcode in the enhanced firmware. That would also be a nice solution.

Re: navigation tree bar for direct subforum access?

Helmut,

I had a quick look and the position of the jump box cannot be set; it can only be enabled or disabled. I'm afraid you're stuck with it being at the bottom. Hit ctrl-end to get to it quickly :)
