PIC (V0.5) programming

Does anybody know what program can program the old 0.5 PIC system? I’m building a robot with a PIC brain and might have to re-program it for 6-wheel drive, if anyone knows what program can reprogram it (other than easy C) that would help.

You can use RobotC.
Here’s the link to the website where you can find documentation on how to use it.

And here’s the link to the download for the PIC version.

If you get this working I’d appreciate it if you would share your code since I’m trying to do a similar thing with a PIC kit but don’t have a lot of free time.

I used RobotC - ROBOTC for VEX Robotics 4.x (VEX Cortex & VEX IQ) - VEX Robotics

You will need an orange programming cord (from PC to the serial programming port on the 0.5 PIC controller.

If you don’t have one, let me know. I’ll dig next week in the junk bin of the robot lab and see if I can find one.

Does this newer version of the programming cable work? this is the version of this cable that I have.

That one is perfect. Good luck.
