Try hitting your Space bar so you are facing North before attempting to get the coordinates. If that does not work, read on.There are better programs to use to make flattens.I use Steve Greenwoods excellent FST flatten program which creates bgl flattens - no line has to be added to the scenery.cfg entry. It will also create flattens in irregular shapes and that can be very useful.You can find his utilities here:http://home.earthlink.net/~smgreenwood/downloads/Hope these ideas are helpful

I would suggest using the ExeBuilder program -Again it creates BGL excludes - no line to be added to the scenery.cfg file.I wrote a Tutorial about using ExeBuilder so you might want to take a look at it also.A search for tutorial_correction.zip will bring up a screen here at Avsim which has the Tutorial, a small correction to the Tutorial and the ExeBuilder program link also.

Placing the dll is not always all that is required.It needs to be recorded in the registry.Go to this site - virtually every dll ever created is there - and read the instructions for adding the dll in question to the registry.http://www.dll-files.com/
