    A couple of better replies than my flippant comment deserved. No easy answer to this.

    That solved it! I should have remembered that, but it's been years since I tried anything like this. Anyway, I think the environment is OK now and we get the first proper error...and immediately: scons: Building targets ... cl /Focsplib\.bin\data\Archive.obj /c csplib\data\Archive.cpp /GR /MD /O2 /EHsc /W3 /nologo /wd4251 /wd4275 /wd4290 /DWIN32 /D__WIN32__ /D_USRDLL /D_DLL /DNDEBUG /D_CRT_SECURE_NO_DEPRECATE /D_USE_MATH_DEFINES /DCSPLIB_EXPORTS /ID:\dev_csp\csp-git /IC:\Python27\include "/IC:\Program Files (x86)\cspdevpack-0.6.2\include\AL" "/IC:\Program Files (x86)\cspdevpack-0.6.2\include" Archive.cpp D:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\VC\Tools\MSVC\14.11.25503\include\hash_map(16): fatal error C1189: #error: <hash_map> is deprecated and will be REMOVED. Please use <unordered_map>. You can define _SILENCE_STDEXT_HASH_DEPRECATION_WARNINGS to acknowledge that you have received this warning. scons: building terminated because of errors. That'll do for now. I'll raise a ticket.

    Thanks! My path is a bit different, but on this machine I added 'c:\program (x86)\microsoft sdks\windows\v7.1a\lib' to both the User and System 'path' parameters in the Environment Variables and restarted the terminal, but SCons doesn't find the libs it checks in the config phase. I've obviously missed some simple step. SCons is written in Python, so it should be straightforward to find out what it's looking for, but a bit soul destroying to be having to put so much effort into some environment pre-check. Doesn't bode well for actually building the project.

    Fear not! Your problem is soon to be solved: https://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-latin-america-46205955/caravan-migrants-reach-united-states-border

    It is, but I suspect you'd go about things a bit differently. Thanks! although I'll ask the owner of the above github account first. I haven't compiled it on this Win7 machine before, so am already running into 'path' problems where SCons can't find some Windows libraries. I think in the olden days, there was a 'Platform SDK' but now most of that stuff is included in the Community version of VS2017...or something like that.

    Yes, but as he perfected his art, ELO lost a lot of the rawness and innovation exhibited between the albums 'Eldorado' and 'Out of the Blue' IMHO. This song from 2015's 'Alone in the Universe' is beautifully produced but a bit nondescript...as is the rest of the album. Feel free to disagree.

    On second thoughts, I'll first try to use some 10 year old pre-built binaries. I'm not so worried if the build fails as the initial goal is to get the SCons build system working. The original CSP documentation was hosted on Sourceforge, but seems to have now disappeared and probably only accessible by Google,Facebook, the 3 letter agencies and evil foreign governments. I scraped what I could from the 'Wayback machine' at archive.org and put it here, together with the installer for the 0.6.2 version of the CSPDEVPACK (containing the aforementioned Windows binaries) and a 0.7 version of its files: https://app.box.com/s/z3ym9xcwkufcnhvcxt3hho0x5tpsbt27

    I'm just going to listen to this for the next hour or so. Jeff Lynne reached a zenith with this one...
  9. Every now and again I look at this with a slightly better knowledge of software development each time. Unfortunately not much has happened in the last 10 years, but I still think that this is still an impressive open source effort which compiles (with a plethora of warnings) and runs today. In the demo build, the F16 on the right will take off, fly around between some waypoints and land back at the single airbase in the scenario. The player can do whatever they want in the other plane but unfortunately there is not much implemented on the combat side. The code is reasonably well documented and running Doxygen on it produces a fairly detailed top-level map. While right now it compiles with GCC on Linux, i'm not sure what will happen with the Windows compiler. It worked 10 years ago, but I suspect it won't now. So, today's fun task will be to assemble the Windows dependencies which I'm sure will end in total frustration. Some parts of this may be useful for TFXplorer as there are some Python world building tools that may be reused or at least provide some inspiration.

    Sorry! I meant to post that in the 'Who's twerking?" thread.

    Coincidentally, the theme for the original version of 'The Office' was 'Handbags and Gladrags' that appears a few posts back in this thread. whenever, whatever...

    A grey goose walks into a bar. The bartender says... "Hey, we've got a vodka named after you!" The goose replies... "What, Eric?"
