Help with Mecanum wheels

My team is looking to use the Mecanum wheels. We think that we have them on correctly by the box however the robot only goes forward and backwards not sideways and across. Is there a certain type of programming that we need to use or am i just driving it wrong?

Please make sure your wheels are mounted per the attached diagram.
Also what kind of programming software do you have?

they are oriented that way. We are using Robot C for programming.


Please test your Mecanum Wheels using the ROBOTC program shown in the attachment.
Let me know your results.
