wow another release I can't keep up cheers DJ
@DJ Sorry, but I think this is my first actual complaint *eek* (bug reports don't count :P)

After working on a mechanical gripper mod and fiddling with servo settings, I have to say that the new servo controls (horizontal & vertical) are much harder to work with... perhaps it works great on a touch screen, but not with a mouse:( at least not as quick and sure for my servo position choice.

Might I suggest a few user "switchable" options? 1) A linear lever like the original, 2) A rotary nob - more for asthetics & 3) what you currently have for what appears to be a perfect touch screen control. You could also make each one "switchable" for Horizontal and Vertical layout... Do the same for PWM and you have one control to rule them all:D

Meanwhile, yes I could, and probably will, make up a script so I can quickly use a switch or joystick to adjust servos (as I don't have a servo tester yet)... but there goes some of the EZ in EZ-Robot (in my view :))

And again... Thanks for all your efforts!
I get " a network error has occurred..." every time that I try to launch the update
@Troop191Robotics Are you downloading directly from the page or going though ARC? If the latter then I recommend the webpage option.
I have to agree with Gunner that the new horizontal and verical servo control for me is a bit harder to use.
@DJ, I can't keep up with you updates! Thank You..
Thanks Gunner,

Yes, I have tired every way that I can think of. I have disabled all security, firewalls, removed all dongles, shut down all other programs, restarted the computer ...
Another new feature is every time that I try to download or reply to the forum, I get a full page pop up add. And the wireless camera just died. Oh well ...
@Troop it sounds like you have a virus
