Stop teasing us. :)

Tony,

If you think this is teasing, wait until LEGO gets ready to release its first expansion set...

I wish they'd release intel version of NXT-G for Mac... Well, the PowerPC version works, but still.

Speaking of Macs, I didn't notice the NXT file browser being mentionned here, or did I miss it?

Handy tool; but does anyone know if there is a way to have NXT-G compile a program offline? That is, with no NXT connected to download it to; but just produce the .rxe file? That with the filebrowser would alleviate the lack of bluetooth availability.

Joubarc:
Someone has created an add-on to NXT-G to allow you to save a compiled program to disk. I haven't tried it, but it should let you do what you want.

Jim:
grrrr!

There is, actually. Jason King has made a utility that plugs in to the NXT-G tools menu to "compile to file". Take a look here:

Yes, I've heard of the NXT file browser for the Mac, but hadn't gotten a blog entry up about it as yet.

Excellent, thanks a lot!

It makes it really easy to work with Bluetooth anyway on Intel Macs. Just compile to file, upload & run with the file browser. Just neat.

It's also nice to see that it's possible to create such extensions and tools for NXT-G, and also to have great people doing so.
