Change Release Notes

This release has a few updates for the new [sku:40] support. As well as a bug fix for the virtual desktop support. It would appear our friend Dave has been hard at work on his Full Size B9 Lost in Space EZ-Robot and found an interesting bug! Don't worry dave, here's the fix!

- Fix for loading projects with duplicate controls when using virtual desktops
- Auto Position Fine Tune now allows math to the servo positions so you can easily upgrade to the v4 servo positions (180) from the v3 (100).

Amazing DJ, you da bomb! Thanks for the fast fix on the buggy boo.
Omg, 180 positions! Awesome DJ. Two v4 boards on order. Really looking forward to the early Christmas. Now just need to stop working to finish building! On the road for a year but still lurking. Go DJ, go!
very neat!
i didn't notice this till i opened up my ARC

also, may i suggest a new feature for the ARC?
(adding an option to install it as windows service, so it starts immediately when booting)
United Kingdom
1. Use the shortcut creator to make a shortcut for the project
2. Copy or move the shortcut to the Startup folder in the start menu of Windows 7 or 8

On boot ARC will start up and the project will load automatically, the specified script will run on load, this can include a connection script to auto connect amongst other things.
Here's what I found:
On Windows

You may have noticed that you have a folder called "Startup" in your Programs menu. Anything you put into this folder, Windows will launch on startup-so setting an app to automatically launch is easy:P
1. First, open up Start > All Programs, and search through the menu for the app you want to start at boot. Right-click on it and hit "Copy". This will copy the shortcut.
2. Find the Startup folder in All Programs and right click on it. Hit "Open", and it'll open up in Windows Explorer.
3. Right click anywhere inside that window and hit "Paste". Your desired program's shortcut should pop right up in the folder, and the next time you log into Windows, that program will automatically start up.

If you ever want the program to stop launching with Windows, then just head back to the Startup folder (by repeating step 2 above) and delete the shortcut
i meant on boot, nog on login (the startup folder is only executed for when a user logs in, but i want it on pc boot..)
United Kingdom
I don't quite understand why you would require that since ARC runs a GUI which is inaccessible until a user logs in...
to load a fully developed robot without the need to log in..
Specify the computer to auto login as a user.
@DJ woo, i forgot that feature exists in windows!XD
now i can run my project with only a pc without requiring a mouse, keyboard or monitor~!:D
I update the ARC, but now it does not all commands from Robosapien: (
Many many versions ago the EZ-Script was updated to require strings to be passed as variables. For example,
