More Competition Template Questions

I’m using ROBOTC for CORTEX and IFI (version 2.31), and have a couple of questions about the competition template:

  1. Is the robot supposed to stop after the specified autonomous duration (20 seconds), or will it continue doing whatever it is programmed to do, regardless of whether 20 seconds have passed? (in testing, not in competition
  2. How can I tell if I am using the most up-to-date version of the competition template?

The robot system I am using is CORTEX with VEXnet.


  1. The robot should automatically kick out of autonomous mode after the specified amount of time up top, but it is possible to inadvertently write code that overrides this during testing, using additional tasks.
  2. The latest competition template is always included in ROBOTC. Any updates to it will be reported on the ROBOTC Live Startpage.
