Any designs that you guys think will stay in from last year?
If this is what you're wondering, just take it apart. If you want, you can leave the chassis together, but that's probably the only thing that will be useful next year. It is impossible to know what designs will be used next year, because most people on here don't know the new game, and the ones who do won't tell right now.
If you have enough parts to leave it together, I guess you can but there's probably no point unless it's super good and you won't ever need those parts.
@JamesChase7422C thank you. also, will robot c still work on the new equipment?
No. The only current programming options that will work with v5 are PROS and RobotMesh.
I'm fairly certain it was confirmed that RobotC for VEX Cortex will be entirely phased out to be replaced by VEX Coding Studio.
Coding Studio will have RobotC++ built in. While there is not (as far as I know) any official documentation on what it is, RobotC++ is most likely going to have similar syntax to the current iteration of RobotC, but will have good C++ stuff like classes, as well as hopefully not being as janky. There is no official way for the general public to acquire Coding Studio yet, and there wouldn't be much use for it anyway without V5.
Anyway, here's the joke answer I was going to post when people said you were a troll. If you are a troll, then ignore everything I said above and follow these steps very closely:
The cortex actually has a hidden partition in its memory that stores Coding Studio in it. Only the beta testers were given the decryption keys, but I have been fortunate enough to crack the code. First of all, you need to gain access to the CIA's secret hacking servers. This will be left as an exercise to the reader. You then need to make sure to have at least 12 petabytes of RAM to store all of the attempted decryption keys, and 14 petabytes of disk space to store the software itself. Now all you need to do is connect your Cortex to your computer via a USB A-A cable, plug a jumper clip into digit port 10 (there is a soft-lock mechanism built into that port, which is why it clashes with port 4's interrupt) , and fire up the hacking software. In about twenty years, it will successfully crack the encryption and you will be able to utilize Coding Studio as long as you have the Cortex plugged in (if you unplug it you have to do all of the above steps again).
@ElectricEagleY I personally are looking forward to a possible shooting game and pushing the capabilities of V5
Honestly, I'm looking forwards to a NBN part 2, as that game was personally one of my favorites. However I'm really looking forwards to anything that isn't a stacking game.
