Ever since I got my Handy I have been very impressed with how accurately it can follow extremely fast changes in a script.
I’ve begun to notice something very strange though, which is that at slow speeds, it seems the less distance the Handy has to move between direction changes, the less accurate the timing of those changes are, which makes literally no sense to me. I discovered it when I wrote this slow script with very short stroke lengths like this:
Every time the script reaches this point, the Handy consistently gets ahead of itself, making the script seem out-of-sync or inverted. To ensure that it really was the short stroke length causing this, I edited that exact script so that the bottom points were at position 0, without changing any of the points’ horizontal positions, like so:
And my Handy syncs up with it perfectly. Changing it back brings back the problem, and compromising and moving the bottom points from 7 to 5 makes it almost in sync.
Another even stranger example is what happens when I attempt to play this script:
During that slow descent on the right half of the script, my Handy slowly moves upward in the opposite direction for some baffling reason, and it completely skips the sharp movement upward on the far right before continuing back downward and syncing up with the script again. BUT, simply moving the bottom point on the left from 5 to 0 like so:
for SOME REASON allows the part on the right to play properly. I’m so confused.
Is this normal behavior for the Handy? Is there some sort of technical limitation I’m unaware of that could explain this? Have I just never tried to script anything this slow before which is why I haven’t noticed, or maybe this isn’t normal and my Handy is malfunctioning?
I REALLY wish someone else would test the script with their Handy, as it would help me to know for sure if there was something wrong with mine, so if you’re not upset by furry porn and are willing to give it a shot yourself, use THIS script (not the one in the actual Perdita’s Passion post since I edited the problematic parts in that one):

Any and all advice and insight into this issue is greatly appreciated.
