No, the source code zip doesn't seem to contain any NXT-G stuff, just NXC code and a PDF. Thanks though! I should look at those NXC programs though. I've wanted to learn it (NXC) for a while, but haven't had enough free evenings to do so just yet. Eventually...

I had never used anything like C before but I got bored over Xmas and re-wrote the NXT-G program I had been working on in NBC in just a couple of days. I then re-wrote it again in NXC.

If you pick a program you are familiar with, then you already have the logic set out in your mind and all you have to learn is the syntax of the new language.

I had looked at the other main languages and decided to stick with NXT-G before I installed BCC. I had looked at that as well but it seemed too complicated!

Now I am very happy with NXC and have added several features to my program because the system is so much easier to use than NXT-G. You don't have to learn it all, just the basics will get you started then you can learn the twiddly bits by looking at other programs.

I just wish I had installed BCC a year ago.

Well, I guess I'll have to give it a try then ;). Thanks!

I would wait a week - some amendments to the firmware are impending and you might as well get the latest version.

Well, updating is really easy, IMO.

I probably wouldn't have time for at least a week anyways :). I'm trying to finish up a prototype product (doesn't include Mindstorms :(), hopefully before the end of this week. Thanks for the tip!

Do you have to download the whole installer for an update, or just a patch? I have slowish internet (~40KBps day, ~120KBps night) so downloading anything big takes a while.

IIRC, only the official releases have an installer, so probably only what is changed.
