I am at the end of my rope, but still not ready to open my RSM and do a serial or any other hardware hack. I have been trying to use RSM Suite 2.4.2 for 5 days, mostly 8 hours a day, have in detail understood .bcn and .sh file structure, commands for each motor, default Bcons, Basic Moves and what not, but still have no control over creating macros I want. To be precise, I know the language, but the robot just occasionally understands or executes. Files and directories of a personality are even worse. If I try to delete my custom made personality from a Suite, it corrupts in such a way that I can never delete it even from Windows Explorer. Suite for a while does what it is supposed to do (saves macros I make into the current personality, after a while it fails without warning. The same goes for updating a personality: initially it works, after a while it pretends to transfer new files but it does not, and even later it declines to copy files from PC to the robot. When I realize that updated files were not transferred, I copy them manually in Windows Explorer, with mixed luck. Also, If I edit macro file in robot's memory by adding some new moves, robot fails to execute macro at all, but even declines to execute when I take out what I have added, and leave the macro with content that previously executed fine. So it goes from bad to worse.
Any suggestions? So far I only came up with this humorous relief: "There is no pesticide strong enough for WowWee bugs!" Any workaround I came up in previous days ultimately failed, and I am building house of cards over and over, if I lived a 100 years I would be able to finish my 20 steps macro I want my RSM to execute (so far I wrote 7 steps, and was able to see 5 of them successfully executed).
