**EasyC Template Issues**

Dear Teams,
FIRST is still hearing about small issues with the template and master code. To the best of our determination, these problems have been related to incorrect versions of the template or master code. In a few other cases, the cause has been problems with the teams own code. FIRST is committed to trying to reduce the confusion and help teams have the proper foundation for their own code. The attached document "EasyC Version and FVC Template Information V4" is an updated version of the guidance on the template and master code. The changes are related to the problem described below.
Recently it has noticed that if the Master code for MPLAB is used with EasyC, the robot will work correctly with the jumpers during testing and the autonomous portion of the match will work correctly. The robot will not transition to operator controlled mode making it useless during that portion of the competition. Please make sure that you are using the correct master code.
For Easy C use the master code included in EasyC v. or download it from http://www.intelitekdownloads.com/FVC2006/ (http://www.intelitekdownloads.com/FVC2006/) or http://www.vexrobotics.com/programming (http://www.vexrobotics.com/programming). FIRST cannot confirm the correctness of master code obtained from other sources.
Thank you,
George Marchant
