• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Warning European users

Today a new bug was reported to me. When your Windows is not set to use the dot as decimal symbol (which is common in many European countries) the resulted SCA file will not compile correct with SCASM. SCASM requires dots.

This is a similar bug to MakeMDL only working when your system is set to dot. I will try to fix it in a future update, as I think it should work regardless of your windows settings.

For now the only solution is to change your regional setting or tweak the SCA manual.
check whether VB does know of system variable named DecimalSeparator and then, when You create strings and befoere You write them to a file, make string replace from DecimalSeparator to '.'.
Similar is for the date, DateSeparator in case You need.

Best regards,
Yes, I need to do something like that. I have done it before in another program, but forgot it in this one. It surprises me that nobody noticed this problem before, I guess most people are using the US settings :).
New version uploaded, the problem with the regional settings should be solved now. Works with both settings now.
