Change Release Notes

This is a big release with a number of gui and backend updates. Try this beta build and provide feedback of irregularities or errors. The GUI has a theme engine now, which means you can (or will be able to shortly) create custom themes for projects. This includes custom windows, title bars, colors, fonts, etc..

Currently this theme engine is using a default DARK theme that i derived from Microsoft Visual Studio and Windows 10 dark mode. The great thing about the dark mode is it's friendly on both your eyes and your robot's battery. The dark mode doesn't use as much power for the LCD - which is good for robots with onboard PC's or people using laptops.

Hey wow, I always look forward to the Beta's but this is the newest visual experience I have ever seen in the years of updates!:D


Haha right on. It’s about to get crazy with updates. We have a bunch of stuff being worked on. Stay tuned :D


Right on DJ ! Having a blast with the Beta, so many great ideas I am dreaming up programming for my Terminator project, Glad to know ARC will keep getting better!


This seems like it was a lot of work. Thanks. I'm really looking forward to seeing what is coming next.


When will it be out of beta?


Full releases are posted once a month. You can install the beta by viewing ARC page


Hi, I am beginner using a RPi 3B+ with a 7 inch touch screen display. I this when i Installed the ARC the display (GUI) is compressed and  some display goes out of the screen. Kindly suggest some remedy so that i can take forward my project smoothly.


The minimum screen resolution for ARC is 1366x768. Ideally, the best resolution for ARC is 1920x1080.

A 7 inch display usually has a resolution of maximum 800x480 or 1024x600 which is lower than the minimum resolution of ARC.

You will likely need a display that can support a higher resolution in order to use ARC.
