Download to Multiple NXTs

此項功能可以下載多個程式到多重NXT. 如果在競賽或是課堂作業中需要下載同一程式到多個NXT時,這會是個很用的功能.
This function allows you to download one or more programs to multiple NXTs. This is especially useful if you need to load a number of NXTs with the same program(s) for a competition or classroom assignment.

這項下載多重NXT功能只有在 LEGO MINDSTORM NXT 軟體的教育版本中提供.
The Download to Multiple NXTs feature is only available in the educational version of the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT Software.

在NXT記憶體滿載前,都可以下載多個程式到NXT中.平均的程式大小約為11 kilobytes但不一定如此. 當記憶體滿載時,可以刪除若干程式來增加空間. 請參閱說明文件"NXT的檔案與記憶體管理"
You can download a number of programs to an NXT until this memory is full. An average program is 11 kilobytes in size but this varies. When the memory is full, you can select programs to delete in order to make space. See the Help file “Managing files and memory on the NXT” for details.

注意: 使用此項功能前,先確認要下載的所有程式都在軟體中開啟. 當同時開啟多個檔案時,程式的名稱會出現在工作區上方(如下圖所示). 並按下NXT視窗的掃描按鍵時,確認所有的積木都是"已連接"的狀態,否則將不會出現在載入多重NXT視窗中.
Note: Before using this function, make sure that all of the programs you would like to download are open in the software. When you open more than one program at the same time, the program names appear as tabs along the top of the work area (as shown in the graphic below). Also, make sure your bricks are "available" by pressing Scan in the NXT window. Otherwise they will not appear in the Download to Multiple NXTs window.

當所有要下載的程式都開啟時,選取在工具選單下的載入多重NXT功能. 接著會出現載入多重NXT功能對話框(如下圖).
When the programs that you would like to download are open, launch the function by choosing Download to Multiple NXTs... in the Tools menu. This will open the Download to Multiple NXTs dialog box, shown below.

  2. "選取程式表"列出已開啟的程式 Choose Programs lists all of the programs that are currently open.

注意: 如果在表中沒看到任何的NXT,請關閉載入多重NXT視窗,並從控制器上打開NXT視窗.確認所有的NXT在使用載入多重NXT功能前都已設定完成.
Note: If you do not see an NXT in the list, close the Download to Multiple NXTs tool and open the NXT window (accessible from the controller). Make sure that all the NXTs have been configured in this window before launching the Download to Multiple NXTs tool.
