question
I2cread Clarification(Rich)
From a different thread, Rich has explained I2C better(for me) Rich explains, "When I2CRead is the only command on the script line the syntax is incorrect. The Unknown command is a little misleading since the command is known, it's just been used incorrectly. Think of it (and any of the other Get commands) as data than as a command. Similar to if...
question
Ez-B Hardwired To Pc?
While Bluetooth is the standard for connecting a PC to the EZ Board and V4 is on the way (WiFi) is it possible to hardwire (USB, etc) for those builders who have room for an onboard PC. Perhaps there is a way to emulate the Bluetooth connection thru hardwire/software? I know there is a Type2 with a stronger signal but that is only one part of the...

More Robosapian Commands
I think @DJ will have the answer for this question... :) I want to create more commands for the Robosapian then the 26 listed in the EZ-Builder Script Commands. Can the for instance, "SendSerial(d1,9600,0x04)" be sent to the Robosapian's IR connection points ? I understand the clock speed is 1/1200 of a sec and 4/1200 of a sec as per...
question
Unintelligent Voice Recognition Response
Tired of yelling at your robot? Getting the silent treatment and dumb stare? Windows VR to my knowledge does not have a verbal "that was unintelligent" response for "garbled/low volume/high volume speak" . It does try or guess what we want it to say when accepting dictation or commands but I want something better! With the help of a few cheap parts...

Greetings DJ, this bug is very very minor. Adding a D10 or V10, the entry is placed in the Port summary list after D1 or V1 as in D0 D1 D10 D11 D2 .....etc same for V entries These entries should/could be listed in order ie D10 following D9 etc I could very well live with this as I know your time is well used for "bigger issues".

Ez-Builder And Scripting Time Management
As robots become more elaborate mechanically the software must keep up. As the monitoring of sensors, particularly, increases, I would like to know what the experianced robot builders opinions are of how to keep the software from " hanging up, bogging down etc" What is the most time intensive EZ-Builder commands and scripts? Also what time...

Modified Servo Positioning
After looking over the vast amount of Forum threads on modified servo positioning it seems that good ole resistance pots are very popular. I am using many modified servos with DIY gears with my project and would really like a good easy positioning fix. Has anyone tried using "hall effect" solutions? Cheap! Small!.....I am thinking of...
question
Ez Office Receptionist Contest
With DJ's endorsement I would like to suggest a contest for members of the forum. Here's the idea, robot builders can submit 1 robot vid with a generalized houmorous greeting that could be DJ's new office greeter. Limit the vid time limit, to say a minute and a half. Any one can play who has an inprogress/complete robot speaking, whistling, dancing...

Adc Sound Wave Vr Script
Greetings Forum, I would like to incorporate an ADC Electret to assist with the windows 7 VR for my talking head FRED.

Multiple Servo Control
I had added the multiple servo control way back prior to Version 2013,01,16 to allow testing of multiple servos, a great addition.

Load Torque Gauge
I think it is really important to know how much load there is moving/pushing something , whether it is a robot head or arm before "throwing" on a servo. Is there something like a force gauge to test whatever it is your moving before placing a servo? I hate crossing my fingers and tuning for dense smoke! :) Your thoughts/suggestions greatly...

Keyboard Control Not Working Until Config

Random Scriptstart Using Ez-Script
The Program Generator does not always functions when the pause is lifted,?

Rss Feed Unstopable
It seems an Rss feed is unstopable until it reaches the end. A "ScriptStop" will try to stop it, but will only lock it up with "(highlighted in green) Stopping". I would like to stop the SpeakRSS whenever I wanted rather then wait until it normally ends, with a Script command or an EXEC. Any leads/suggestions would be appreciated! Glen from Salt...
