I didn't get this problem. I run Vista on a RAID mirror system, with program files on a D: partition separate to the Windows C: drive. The patch installed OK, correctly picking up that it should instal onto the D: drive. My Documents are also on another separate F: partition, and it picked this up O...

The other problem with the sail choices is that only the Spi allows for anything shaped remotely like a spi, either symetric or assymetric. All of the others have a dead straight luff, and no vertical shape at all. This means that they will just look like big jibs, regardless of any shape you try to...

Chris I see what you mean, and most common joysticks would obviously not be up to the job. However, I would have thought it would be very difficult to provide what you suggest from within the game itself. Disabled users will often require Human Interface Devices that are customised to their personal...

Hi Chris I do use a joystick, and a throttle for sail trim. All of the keyboard commands can be mapped to a joystick button. Provided you have enough buttons on your joystick, it should be perfectly possible to play with joystick only. Of course, this does mean using a fairly pricey joystick with lo...

This is very similar to the problem I was getting with the 49er. It was (with Maitai's advice) eventually solved by changes to the Surface mesh, but I never really worked out what was happening or why.

VSK4 3d graphics files (i.e. the boat model) will usually work OK in VSK5, but VSK5 uses different (and much bigger) data files. The BoatParam file can run to over 1500 lines as opposed to 150. It would be possible to convert a VSK4 model, but it would need a complete rewrite of the data file (with ...

Replies: 42
Views: 56382

I think it's just a Windows XP/Vista security issue. Windows realises that an .exe file has been changed from the one that was registered on installation, and puts a stop on it. If you double-click on the VskAc32.exe file (after extracting it to the correct location) you will get a security confirma...

No problem. AV programs are very cautious these days, and rightly so.
You are downloading an executable file, and any .exe is capable of being a virus.

The only file in the zip is the exe. installer. Nothing different to any other download custom boat. I zipped it because some browsers object to downloading .exe files. Ther have been upwards of 90 downloads of the same file from VSK-Aus, so there is no problem with it.

It features a trapeze, asymmetrical spinnaker, wings and low weight and achieves speeds of over twenty knots which makes it one of the fastest single-handed sailing boats. It was designed for the 2000 Olympic Class trials in Qu...
