i had to change this nice code:
Code:
        ;standard FASM macros for importing
        include "%FASMINC%/macro/import32.inc"

        ;imports that FASMLIB needs
        library kernel32, "kernel32.dll", \
                user32, "user32.dll"

        include "%FASMINC%/APIA/kernel32.inc"
        include "%FASMINC%/APIA/user32.inc"    


to ugly andconfusing:

Code:
        ;standard FASM macros for importing
        include "%FASMINC%/macro/import32.inc"

        ;imports that FASMLIB needs
        library kernel32, "kernel32.dll", \
                user32, "user32.dll"

        macro api [a] {} ;WTF?
        include "%FASMINC%/API/kernel32.inc"
        include "%FASMINC%/API/user32.inc"

where from it appeared?

i see...
you can hide this macro somewhere in supporting includes or use win32a.inc
===
or still use apia/apiw folders

Since i'm still new to assembly i miss the reson behind alot of this stuff including the reloc, since things appear to work fine without it... anyway...

Code:
macro api [a] {} ;WTF?     


If i'm reading that correctly, it should be creating a macro that takes 1 param, and does absolutely nothing with it... For future referance (and maybe to prevent issues in the future for me and others who don't know why we need it there), could you explain why we need it there? lol

When i go into the include directory i see na APIA and an APIW, but not an API, and looking at those 2 files in the APIA, i didn't see where it used it, maybe i'm just missing something. lol

Jeeze, i didn't know that a new one came out, but i still can't see how anything could possibly use an empty struct constructively (no pun intended).
