LEGO has recenlty made this easier to find: http://www.lego.com/en-us/mindstorms/downloads/software/nxt-software/


Sadly that's a limitation of Windows RT - there's no way you can install the EV3 software on there. Windows RT can only run apps from the Windows Store (and some specially compiled apps that MS supply such as Office RT - however I don't think the typical user can install a correctly compiled non-Store app on the Surface - as a developer you can side load ...


No. Unfortunately there are no shortcuts. EV3-G can not open programs written in NXT-G.

No, but LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 offers backward compatibility to NXT. You can therefore use your NXT Intelligent Brick ...


No, there is no automated way to convert source files from other programming languages into un-compiled NXT-G code. The .rbt format is very complex, so writing a program to interpret programs written in other languages and generate a proper .rbt file with properly placed and configured blocks would be an incredibly time-consuming and tedious task that ...


There is a piece of software called ICON (archived copy) which runs on the NXT and allows you to create programs on the NXT with many more commands than the built-in NXT programmer.


Microsoft have just announced that they are releasing an API for Windows 8.1 and Mindstorms EV3. Hopefully this will mean some apps for the two platforms will emerge sometime in the future.


The move steer and move tank blocks take 5kb each while the large motor block takes 4kb. If you have a long string of move blocks in your program, it will take up big chunks of memory. We've gotten around that in the past with using myblocks. Myblocks are only copied to the NXT once and called each time it is needed in the program. A pivot myblock might take ...
