  • Control Hub config files

    .
    Teams wanting to replace an Expansion Hub (EH) with a Control Hub (CH) on an already-built robot, will need a different Config File. You can rebuild it from scratch (from the DS app), or use these steps, even on a loose/unattached CH.
    .

    1a. Plug the existing RC phone into a laptop. Copy the Config File (BigBot.xml) from the RC's FIRST folder to the laptop. Unplug the RC.

    1b. Optional: rename that file to BigBotEH.xml. Make a copy, named BigBotCH.xml.

    2. Edit lines 2 and 3 of BigBotCH.xml with any text editor or XML editor, as follows:

    FROM (example):
    <LynxUsbDevice name="Expansion Hub Portal 1" serialNumber="DQ2ERJ8S" parentModuleAddress="2">
    <LynxModule name="Expansion Hub 2" port="2">

    TO:
    <LynxUsbDevice name="Expansion Hub Portal 1" serialNumber="(embedded)" parentModuleAddress="1">
    <LynxModule name="Expansion Hub 1" port="1">

    3. Plug the powered-up CH (USB-C port) into the laptop. Copy BigBotCH.xml into the FIRST folder on the CH. Unplug the CH.

    4. From the paired DS phone, activate the BigBotCH config. Done!

    .
    Having done this, your team may prefer to continue directly editing large Config Files, keeping a copy on the laptop. Can be a good reference for debugging, wire management, and programming.
