How to use the Script Monitor robot skill

This is a diagnosing tool to identify scripts that are running. Many skills have script events that are triggered based on activity. For example, a Wii Skill will execute a script when a button is pressed. Because these scripts are executed in the background, this skill lets you monitor the activity.

If your script has a loop, it may run extra long. Using this monitor, you can see which scripts are continuing to run.
