Post subject:  Servo Debug RobotC

I don't know why, but servo debug in RobotC doesn't seem to make my servos on my robot for FTC respond anymore. I don't know if it's the new version that has a bug or something. or whether it is just that i didn't configure or do something new that's required. Does anyone know if this a bug in RobotC? I try to just press the minus and plus btns on the servo debug screen of the port with my servo in it. The values increase and decrease, but the physical servo doesn't.

I have just tested this in ROBOTC 3.54 and the Servo Debug + and - buttons worked accordingly; make sure that the program is running (the Debug Window's 'Start' button has been pressed) and that the robot has a fresh battery installed. Also note that factors such as gearing and friction can make the movements almost impossible to see; if you press and hold the + or - button, the External Servo debug window will 'max out' the values at 255 and 0, respectively, which should show if the servos are moving or not.

As always, double check the Motors and Sensors setup window as well to ensure that the Servo Controller and individual servos are set up appropriately.
