Are the standard moves on the remote control documented somewhere ?

How can I use the forward walk as the basis for a new move ?

It appears the standard moves are stored in the program code in flash. If I add hip servos, how can I modify the standard moves for this ?

hi iBot

we've contacted the manufacturer and this is their explanation about using the motion files as a base for a move and also, about how the programs are saved to memory:

"- How can I use the forward walk as the basis for a new move ?

àYou need have the *.rbm motion file to do this. Please find the enclosed basic motion files for all three HUNO, DINO, DOGY. Open MotionBuilder to include and edit them for your modification. Here follow some more basic tips regarding how to handle motion files. [ edit: files can be found here http://robosavvy.com/RoboSavvyPages/Robobuilder/080222-Basic_Motion.zip ]

Basically the motion files stored in the flash area can not be touched. Therefore, the buttons allocation for basic motions can not be changed. If you want to do this, you can use C programming and create your own firmware. On the other hand, the user defined motion files are stored in the EEPROM area, thus can be changed anytime. You can create your own new motion or modify someone else's motion to freely allocate the buttons when you transfer the files to RBC control box. But there are some rules to follow that you need to keep in mind when you do the file transfer.

-You can transfer to RBC controller 20 motion files in total.

-Before you turn off RBC controller, the button allocation is done in the order of your file transfer. That means the first file you transfer is allocated for button number 1, and the second file to button number 2, and so on. Therefore, you need to plan well in advance before you begin the transfer if you transfer many files together or if you want to allocate a particular motion to a particular button.

-If you power cycle the RBC controller and begin a new file transfer, the existing files are deleted and the new files are allocated from button number 1 again.

-Refer to page 74 of the kit manual too"

Thanks Pedro, those files are exactly what I was looking for.
