Connecting Brookstone Rover To Ez-Builder Questions

Hi all,

I am trying to connect my Rover v1 to Ez-builder.
I have tried two different ways:

1. Connect the rover to my wifi on the computer first. When I tried this the network symbol has the yellow triangle with the black line appeared. I then opened ARC and added the Rover, selected v1 and press connect. I then get this message:

EZB 0:
EZB 1:
EZB 2:
EZB 3:
EZB 4:

at EZ_B.BrookstoneRover.()
at EZ_B.BrookstoneRover.Connect(RoverVersionEnum version)
at EZ_Builder.UCForms.FormBrookstoneRoverMovementPanel.(Object , EventArgs )


2. I have tried to leave my wifi connection on to the computer, opened Ez-builder, add the robot and press connect. This freezes ARC and when it responds I get this message: EZB 0:
EZB 1:
EZB 2:
EZB 3:

Plz help?

The Brookstone Rover module has a bug while we are adding support to v2. I didn't notice it until this message. I'll do a new release for the v1 users tonight or tomorrow.

See DJ's message just before yours. He accidentally broke support for Rover v1. He'll be releasing a fix soon.

The error message has changed. I selected v1, but it displayed:

Hello this is me Pyae Phyoe again
can i get old version ezbuild which can connect v1 brookstone rover ?
cannt connect with current version
#17  
Hello,

Looks like I'm in the same boat as everyone else.

Same kind of error:

System.IndexOutOfRangeException: Index was outside the bounds of the array.
at EZ_B.BrookstoneRover.()
at EZ_B.BrookstoneRover.Connect(RoverVersionEnum version)
at EZ_Builder.UCForms.FormBrookstoneRoverMovementPanel.(Object , EventArgs )

Like pyaephyoe mentioned, is there a way we can access an old version of the software? I just got a rover and am itching to try out the software.

@Savall21

it hasn't been fixed yet, it's as simple as that:P
#21  
Ok, how about the most recent version where it worked?
#22  
Maybe by an off chance a collecting soul on here has all the back issues of ARC, otherwise I think your SOL I'm afraid...
