View Full Version : Subscript Out Of Range Error
08-26-2002, 04:58 PM
Hi, could someone tell me the proper way to change the size of an API macro? The macro I want to use has a suggested scale of between 0.10 an 0.20. If I try to change the scale from the default setting of 1.00 I get the error message "Runtime 9 Error - Subscript Out Of Range. I am using build 155 and am designing my scenery for FS2002. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hello Pat.. If the (recommended scale 0.1 to 0.2) macro is one that wasn't part of the Apt26 download, I'm not totally sure but you may be able to pre-edit the scale and call it into Apt using the <Create 3D Object/User API> method.
Keep in mind that changing the scale to 1.0 when it was recommended that 0.2 be the maximum is a HUGE change and the interface may possibly rebel if you're controlling the scale in the %4 parameter box of Apt's create 3D object window. 'Not sure what's happening but it's possible that the large increase in scale is telling Apt to draw a locator symbol larger than that compatible with the interface's "draw airport symbol" (internal) code instructions. If you pre-edit the macro's scale and avoid the %4 box, then Apt does not try to draw a symbol proportional to the scale size entered in %4.
To try pre-editing the macro's scale all you need to do is open it in notepad or a similar text editor and change the scale value in the "RefPoint(" line of the macro's code. In the below example, it's the 3rd. element in the line (the "1").
i.e.: "RefPoint( 2 :TagPoly 1 38:58.19275 -089:5.07623 E= 142 V1= 5000 V2= 480 )".
At least one other possibility exists: If the macro already contains (or you manually edit) the location the object is intended to be placed in the scenery (Lat/Lon, elevation, heading, etc), you can compile the macro into a seperate *.bgl and put the bgl into your scenery folder along with the one created by Apt26.
Again, going from 0.2 to 1.0 is a big change but you "Might" get it to work "manually". Also, you might mention what type of scenery object the macro is intended to create...

You should be able to change the scale to a decimal without problem. Where exactly are you entering the 0.10? Into which field? I will check the program and try to correct the error. Also, please email the offending API file to the support address at: firstname.lastname@example.org
