So I decided to set up the cRio and basic components and run some basic code.
We are using Java and so I ran some of the default code to assure all systems were functioning, and it worked just fine.
However when I went to use my own code it didn’t work. I must have edited and redeployed code 40-50 times with no success, editing and changing it.
Anyway I eventually found out that even though my code was using the 1 and 2 channel, the jaguars and motors were responding on channels 3 and 4.
I am curious is anyone else has had this problem.
I am looking for a real solution, but if not I found out that if I use channels 3 and 4 in code it will using 1 and 2 and so just wrote my own Jaguar class that extends the original and just remakes what port it uses. (in my code I put 1, but my modified Jaguar class will silently pass on channel 3, so it looks like it is working properly). So i basically used visualization to rewire the digital sidecar. Not a bad temp fix for someone using Java for 2 months with a rookie team.
