Hello BrianJ

Thanks again for your help. :cheers:
I just sent you an email, so you will have my address.

I wish you a happy Christmas.

Hello

After thinking from me ...

I wonder if the easiest for me that would not be quite simply to ask you as I had done for the tower of ELA4 to make me a dll.
It was papyref who advised me to ask you, what I had done.

I remember giving you the coordinates, angles and axes of rotation as well as the numbers of groups to animate, and you made me the necessary dll.
And it works very well.
What do you think ?

If you need me to make another launch tower like ELA4 - of course, I will be happy to help :)
If you send me the mesh, .scn and .ini files (the same as we did for ELA4) I can do it.

But I will also try to find a way to help you start to compile your own .dll - it will give you access to many more functions than spacecraft3.dll etc., and I think you will enjoy the extra freedom.

I am NOT a computer professional - my only skill is making .dll for Orbiter
Configuring the MS VS 2010 (or 2017) is the most difficult step, I think.
When it is configured correctly I don't change it - I just add in a new .cpp file for each project (and maybe add Orbitersound.lib if required).

PLEASE EMAIL ME AT: [email protected]
then we can communicate more easily.

I will try and think of an easy way to get you started compiling .dll using MS VS 2010, and send you some infos/images etc.

Best wishes and have a good holiday!
A+

Hi again BrianJ

I can uninstall MS visual studio 2010 (I never used it) and install MS Visual C ++ 2010 (vcredist_x64) which I have somewere in one of my backup drives...
But I think you're right: I'll ask on the forum if I can't configure it.

Thank you for your quick reply. :salute:
See you soon here... I still might need you... :unsure:

There is no urgency, the Christmas holidays being close, I will not be able to start until in January.

While waiting for your answer, I wish you happy holidays.

Hi Jacques,
It is nice to hear from you :)
I am still using MS Visual Studio 2010 - so I'm not sure if I will be the best person to ask.
Also - I can never remember how to configure MS Visual Studio 2010 ! ( i have some notes somewhere, I will look for them)
You might get more help for MS Visual Studio 2017 if you start a thread on the forum.

But - I think the best method is to try to compile the simplest .dll - ShuttlePB in the orbitersdk/samples/ folder.
It will probably ask you if you want to convert to MS VS 2017 format - say yes.
B
BrianJ
Then you will need to link the appropriate files from the orbitersdk/lib folder etc.
I can try to help you with that, but maybe someone who uses MS VS 2017 can give you better answers.
Probably best way to do it is to start a thread here on the forum.

I wish you Happy Holidays!

My request :
I have "microsoft visual studio 2017 community" installed on my computer.
Could you help me to configure it correctly so that by putting a ccp file (like the one you sent me) I can make a working dll ?
Then I will manage (by changing some values for example) to understand how it works
