A friend gifted me a Reactor Arm with 8 servos.

I got the USB2AX driver installed under Windows 10 (COM4)

Using RoboPlus 1 Dynamixel Wizard, I can see the COM4 working since it updates the encoder positions if I move joints by hand.

I installed Processing3 and the G4P and video libraries.
Then I downloaded ArmLink (https://github.com/Interbotix/ArmLinkSoftware).
You have to change all instance of G4P.WARNING in the source code to G4P.WARN_MESSAGE
and then it will run.

It fails to talk to robot when you click Connect on COM4.
I get the same verifyPacket Error: No Header! error as this guy:
https://github.com/Interbotix/ArmLinkSoftware/issues/1


looking for insight.....
cheers

Sorry, did not see this messages until yesterday. Not sure if it was moderated until then.

There are very few of us up on this forum these days, and I am not sure I can help much, as I no longer have an arm setup, never tried the Arm Link stuff and have never used processing.

Unfortunately it looks like the library has not been touched in probably at least 5 years, is in an archived state and the developer of it, I am pretty sure has not worked there in a long time.

It looks like the code was developed for Processing 2, don't know how much of a difference this makes.

Sorry I am not a help here.
