vLSO update

Clive at FSDT forum has reported that the program didn't work with the Coupeville FCLP scenery. As it appeared, he has installed it in a folder other than the FSX Addon Scenery folder. The FSX scenery config stores relative paths, whereas vLSO supposed they're absolute to the FSX main folder. This bug now fixed, so you can update the exe file only (anything else remains intact).
There's no other changes to the program, so those of you who install sceneries in the Addon Scenery folder may continue using

vLSO 0.7 news [sound]

Well, for the last few days I've been struggling with a nasty glitch in my program. As it turned out, the problem was in a piece of sound software, which didn't work as advertized and caused sudden hangups during an approach... This part of the program is being replaced now and it will take a few more days to code, test and debug.

vLSO 0.7 news [FCLP]

This version will support FCLP and the first FCLP location will be NOLF Coupeville. This scenery is a part of my FCLP missions pack vol.2 with only one file added for vLSO compatibility. The IFLOLS remains set to 3.75. These screenshots were taken from my last bouncing session with some head wind. Landing with 16 knots WOD with gusts turned into a challenging endeavour, so my average grade was a stitch )))) Practice, practice and practice...
