Computer Science teacher here.
I am programming VEX IQ robot brains (version 2.1.2 firmware) with the Robot Mesh Connect Chrome extension (Version 18.104.22.168) on Windows 10 computers. Students program using Blockly from that site.
In the last day, the simple programs that my students have been downloading have stopped executing. I am getting the error “User Program has exceeded time limit of 3 seconds.” When I reboot, the error continues to occur.
(When I say simple programs, the students have to calculate distance and program the robot to drive and bump a cup. They do set up the drivetrain correctly. It is basically a one-line block program.)
I have tried all sequences of removing and reinstalling the extension and the windows plugin. It appears that the website makes the connection to the robot brain, can download, and the program appears on the display of the robot brain. But each time the check mark is pressed, there is the delay, and then the error message is displayed.
Does anyone have any additional suggestions that I should try in my troubleshooting? Anyone have the fix? Again, everything worked fine yesterday, but not today. Lesson Plans kaput.
