HELP! Can you help me with RoboLab 2.9?
I have been having a lot of trouble with programming the NXT rotation
sensor with ROBOLAB 2.9. I can get the rotation sensor to work some
of the time, but whenever I try to add the NXT motor sync option the
robot goes forward forever. A few questions:

Can the rotation sensor and the motor sync blocks coincide?
Is there an easier way to program the rotation sensor?
Where should the motor sync block be placed in the program, before or
after I program the motors to go forward x number of degrees?
Does it matter?

I have also been having trouble controlling my robot's speed. In the
Mindstorms NXT software I can program my robot to gradually increase
my speed as I move forward. How do I do that in ROBOLAB?

If anyone has any suggestions or tips, please post a response. Until
then, I will continue to experiment.
