Hey Paddy,

From what I've experienced with Roborealm is that it won't let you manipulate the variables directly. First you have to parse them using GetVariable. Then you can put them in your own variable using SetVariable.

For example
tempx = GetVariable("Joy_Stick_X") // Get the X value for the Joy Stick and put it in some temporary variable.

SetVariable "My_new_x", tempx + some_value // Make your own variable. You can then manipulate the tempx by adding or subtracting form it etc.

You can then send the "My_new_X" value through the serial port.
Also note that I don't know the exact names of the variables for the Joy Stick X and Y. You can find those in the list of Available Variables in the VBScript dialogue window.

Hope this is what you needed. Let me know if you run into any problems.
