Would anyone like to chime in on what the advantages are to using the programmer's version of EZ instead of the non-programmer one? I'm a total novice (research psychologist by trade) but am willing to learn C++ or another language.
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Synthiam ARC Pro is a cool new tool that will help unleash your creativity with programming robots in just seconds!

1.ARC is simple to learn and the EZ-Script is very easy.
2.You have a bunch of user friendly controls with more being added often.
3.C++ is complicated to learn
4.Almost everyone here knows everything about ARC so you can easily get help when you need it. there are much less people on this forum who know c++.
I looked in to using it to push me to learn C#. It didn't last long when I realised how often ARC is updated, how powerful the EZ-Script can be (and it's getting better and better all the time too) and couldn't think of many reasons not to use ARC.
If you already have something written in c# or have a specific requirement that isn't in ARC yet then the SDK is the way to go but to be honest, ARC is the popular option even amongst programmers for a reason.
If you are a novice I would highly suggest using ARC and not wasting time trying to learn C#.
Hope that helps.
As with others I tried visual basic and found the ARC script to be a much faster way to program my robot. There are some complex things that I may get to eventually that require a more custom program approach so I looked at visual basic with ARC API a while back to see if I could get the gist of it.
1. Build a completely custom interface both functionally and visually
2. Create features that are not in ARC
3. Ego boost - you did it just because you could
Well that's all I can think of lol
