Breaking the v5 Brain


When I run this program, the brain automatically exits out of the program when. I raise the tray. My hypothesis is that eventually, the brain is trying to move the motor at i percent speed, and it just nopes out of there

Hi Railgunawesome.

Accidentally calculating i should throw a value error, not crash the interpreter, as seen below:


Could you please give us a link to your project?


Sorry about this, but how do I share a project link?
Also, this is just what I suspect, there may be another issue I didnt notice. The code has since been updated to not make the program exit.

Copy the URL from the address bar to a post here. Make sure you’ve set the project to Public through the Options gear at the top right.

You did the first step. You still need to set the project to public.

Oh yes, sorry.
When. I clicked on the gear, it gives me 3 public settings. Which one should I click?

If you want us to be able to see the code, I’d go with the one that says “including code”.

Here it is, I updated the permissions.

It’s possible you’re hitting a race condition between checking the condition of the if and setting the tilter motor to move. Try storing the potentially unsafe value (tilter motor encoder + 700) in a variable. That way you can check against the value of the variable and have a guarantee that it will be the same value you later do math with.
