Is LEGO intentionally crippling support for the NXT models?

Postby Stryker295 » 11 May 2015, 01:49

I've noticed over time it's been harder and harder to find resources for the NXT from the LEGO website. Oftentimes they're still there, but the links redirect to the new EV3 Mindstorms homepage, and you have to navigate around awhile to find what you need.

Also, apparently, they've removed a file from within their driver download, thereby preventing anyone from installing the NXT Fantom Drivers. Could this have been intentional?

hey,
hopefully this fantom drv link will still work for you:
http://cache.lego.com/upload/contentTemplating/Mindstorms2SupportFilesDownloads/otherfiles/downloadEC6CCAA9A232D445C9FFACBB917C537F.zip

if you'll have issues, I still can provide an own uploaded zip file.

HTH!

Thanks! It seems to have installed correctly, but I'll have to wait to test my NXT when I get home.
