    Hey!

    Just recently purchased a ROB for my NES, but having a bit of trouble getting it to work properly.
    Basically, I set it up in front of the TV, and it responds just fine to commands given to it in Gyromite... sometimes.

    I have to sometimes send a command over 20 times before it eventually gets it and starts moving.
    I've tried moving it around all over the room, but can't find a good position.

    Any tips to get ROB to respond to commands better?

    Maybe the the sensors are faulty?

    Usually when a photo cell goes bad, though, it wouldn't respond at all. But I can get some response.

    It could have something to do with the refresh rate. I tried using a PS1 light gun on a 100hz CRT and it didn't work. It should work fine if you are using a 4:3 50/60hz CRT.
