Help with Tank Drive

Hello, all! I’m the programmer from a rookie team. I’ve never used Labview before. I’m trying to change our drive system to Tank Drive.

When I follow the default instructions for tank drive, only one joystick responds, and that joystick turns both motors, instead of each joystick turning one.

I have no idea why this is happening or how to fix it, and I’m at the end of my Google-fu abilities.

What instructions are you following? Can you post your code?

did you initialize 2 in the Begin vi, each with a different usb and different name?

This was the problem. I hadn’t known to initialize the second joystick.

do you want a screen shot of how to do it?

Make sure both joysticks are plugged in. You’d be surprised to know how many times our programming team has had troubles because of wires not being connected.
