tankControl is not working

I’m trying to do a test with the tankControl block in Graphical RobotC, but it keeps on saying that there is an error. I’m also using a virtual robot. Plz help!

Hi UniversalTerraria157,

Unfortunately, as mentioned here:

The VEX IQ Controller is not a supported joystick for use in Robot Virtual Worlds. To help resolve this issue, you will need to use a USB PC gaming controller. ROBOTC has posted a tutorial video on YouTube detailing how to configure a gaming controller (specifically an Xbox 360 controller) for use in RVW.

For more detailed help specifically regarding Robot Virtual Worlds, please see the ROBOTC RVW Forum here:
