I think it supports C++ indeed, and NQC is Not Quite C, so it's something that looks like C, but made for the NXT I think.
Ok.

Has someone a NXT 2.0 ? If yes, can you tell me if you had problems with it (like bugs or something (hoping you'll answer no ;)))

Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.

<a href=http://www.omnimaga.org/index.php?action=profile;u=1879>nxtboy III</a> does I believe. You should ask his opinion. He also has a thread requesting sprites for a game he's working on for it <a href=http://ourl.ca/14543/272622>here</a>.

Ah, ok. :) They seem to be fairly interesting devices, though I have no experience with them myself.

No need to have experience. Building with Legos is easy (and I am sure you already had Legos in your hands ;)) and there is a language for complete noobs (the one I am going to use :P)

Mindstorms is one of those things that is simple enough that a child can use it, but complex enough that adults participate with competitions using them! :D

I didn't know that had competitions for adults with these things. O.O It seems they are much more popular than I thought!

I have both a NXT and NXT 2.0.  Personally, I like them for different reasons.  1.0 has more of the longer bards, but doesn't have a color sensor or two touch sensors, which is useful.  Also, 2.0 has several other pieces that 1.0 doesn't have and vice versa.  As for software, my personal favorite is lejos, simply because I can compile and know how to modify the underlying firmware.  As for which robot to get, I would suggest to build robots, I would suggest 2.0, especially if you want them to move about.

Hey guys!
This is sort of off-topic, but since we are talking about Mindstorms, I wanted to share a game I made for the NXT. I also needed help for an NXT game, so maybe you guys will know what I should do since a lot of you guys want/have an NXT.
Here's my game:

Wow games for NXT, I have not even considered that for the NXT 1.0 I bought 5 years ago, actually I have seldom touched it because I didn't know what to do with it besides run some sample programs/tutorials.
