      Marek Klajman One more issue, it´s working on PC with Windows, but when I try it on Android devices voltage is showing only 0. I´m using ON START+FOREVER DO+CAPTION SET TEXT+VOLTMETER VOLT? Is it correct??
      • May 2
    • Marek Klajman
      Fabrice Bovy Hi, same remark, use "caption set text" = "Volmeter volt" on "On start" and on event "When voltage change value".
      Always try to avoid loops
      • Wed at 5:04 PM
    • Marek Klajman
      Marek Klajman I think, that it´s problem on adroid device. Because on my laptop works all combination with voltage, but on my cell phone it´s always showing 0. I´ll try on another device.

      Marek Klajman Whatever I try, it looks that it´s not possible to have two slider with different settings to control one motor. I would like to have one slider to control extending boom together with unwinding rope. But also have another slider to control rope drum separatly.
      • Apr 20
    • Marek Klajman
      Lénárd Pásztor I see that you update the motor status from multiple loops, so this is why it is not working. You need to modify your code to make sure that the motor receiving value from one slider at a time.

      Marek Klajman I´ve find solutions, I´m not using slider, but buttons - not that clean solutions as I thought, but it´s working. If you will find time to try, please show me what you mean.

      Soós Balázs As I see in RacingBrick website, this is called
