    Well, frost my possums! Howdy neighbor! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Glad you're here! Sorry, you can never check out. It's like the Hotel California.

    Thanks for your site and expertise, and discussion as well. Been a help from time to time, and I'd like a nickel for every time I've seen it linked somewhere! Hang out here a bit, it gets interesting now and again. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    If this thread has proved 1 thing is that it is a whole lot easier to play with a 'puter program that to shoot accurately and that there is a whole bunch of different winds that effect the projectile on it's way to a target 1k away..Jr..Jeff Rogers

    Actually, you probably are. It's a "command line" program. Download it, unzip it and then open a "DOS box" go to the directory where you unzipped it and type "mpm" and hit return. If you double click it, it'll run, but depending on the current directory, it may not find its files.

    Maybe someday I'll make a Windowed program for it, but I kind of doubt it.
