Re: Got robot running,Now will not stop running when turned up
All that the Motor Port 3 Forward sample program should do is turn on the motor connected to the VEX Cortex MOTOR Port 3 for three seconds. In order for the robot to perform more than that simple task, more code must be added. I would recommend following the videos in the Movement section of the VEX Cortex Video Trainer for detailed instructions on how to do so: http://www.education.rec.ri.cmu.edu/pro ... index.html
Two wire (or prong) motors can be directly connected to the Cortex on ports 1 and 10. If you plug them in there, you must reference them as port1 and port10, instead of port2 and port3, like in many of the sample programs. The two wire motors can also be connected to ports 2-9 indirectly using one of the Motor Controller 29 wires.
