    Conrad you had it right. I thought I was running with Administrator rights but discovered it was not set. I changed it and now it compiles. Thanks

    FSXA Cannot get FSDS 3.51 to work on my system - Is Abacus defunct?

    I have been fighting with FSDS 3.51 for some time. I have installed it on Win7 64 bit with a 2 TB drive. It starts and I can set the paths to the compilers (XToMDL, or MakeMDL and BGLComp) but I get this error. I tried the help file and discovered the link to Abacus is broken. Is Abacus...

    Old School SCASM Coder needs help with vectors

    I am in the process of making static aircraft libraries for use in FS and for some of the sources I need to re-engineer the code to add some parts (winglets) or change others (Lengthen fuselage of modify wings) The one thing I can't get my brain around is the calculations of the vectors for the...

    Calculation of LAT/LON - can it be done?

    Hi Arno; I used a MS Excel Spread sheet to develop the formulas and did some positioning by manually using the results to create a line of taxiway lights. They line up well and so I am not worried about the world model ... I'm using FS2002 and 2004. I did use the Uvar command - I think...

    Calculation of LAT/LON - can it be done?

    I am using SCASM to place objects from my own object library files. I wrote some code - modified from formulas from MS Excel - that calculate a new LAT/LON from and original location and a displacement. When I run the compiler I get the error message: Area( 5 $LATI $LONGI 6 ) -> illegal...

    variables buffer overflow

    Arno; I went to the source...Manfred Moldenhauer ... and here is his response (for the benefit of all us dinosaurs still using SCASM) "this error happens when the total number of variables exceeds the maximum number. In older versions this value was 200 and the actual version handles 500...

    variables buffer overflow

    I am coding a hanger with a number of dimensions calculated based on the input width and depth. While I have a number of Uvars I am no where near the 200 Uvars limit mentioned in the SCASM docs (my macro has 60). When I compile the hanger in scenery using FSSC and SCASM v2.88 I get multiple...
