How to use the Movement Script robot skill

This skill allows you to use movement actions to control additional scripts.

For example, all "Movements" are global. So if you use a Movement Panel of any kind, this skill will execute the script for the movement direction that was activated. Such as, if you have a Modified Servo Movement Panel and press FORWARD, the respective Forward Script in the settings of this skill will execute.

Main Window

1. Pause Checkbox
When checked, the movement scripts will be paused and won't execute when movement commands are activated.

2. Movement Command Display

3. Movement Panel
When a movement panel is activated by scripts or directions being pressed, it will cause the scripts set up in the Movement script skill to be executed according to the direction (or stop) command it receives.
