ERROR: bad command flexfile

I don’t know what I did wrong, but for some reason, my compiler doesn’t want to give Kazooie her VTA animations.I’ve tried to figure out what’s wrong, but seeing as how I’m new to VTA files, I’m flying with hard to see through sun-glasses on. If someone can help, I’ve included the project files here:
http://www.mediafire.com/?5976p9pmztf93yl (Includes Textures and flex free version, model file is in 3ds max format, smds included)

The qc I used is this one:

That will fix that error but without any flex definitions there wont be any flexes when it compiles (or will give errors to such).

Flex definitions?

How do I define them?

Well if you had made them they would be like this in the citizens (the more complex ones):

but being as that seems to have been decompiled, theres not much you can do unless you look at each frame of the VTA and try and figure out what flex they are meant to be and type them out by hand (or try this one and hope it works).
