Hi,
I'm trying to make some heavy programs with NXC, and I find many problems due to the slowness of the robot executing my code.
I want to know if replacing the original firware could improve the computational performance of my robots.

Thank You
Lorenzo

    Lorenzo,

    Could you explain more about how slow the NXC operates with your heavy code? Maybe show an example of what you are trying to do, some sample code, and how long it takes to run.

    The enhanced NBC/NXC firmware provides some features that make programs execute faster such as native array operations, math opcodes, such as shifts and rotates as well as transcendental functions.
