Can you give an example of how you're envoking the macros.
#include "Rope.inc"
#declare Rope_Catenary_a = 15; // 1 default
Rope_AddPoint (<0,0,0>)
#declare Rope_SplineIncrement = 0.01; //.001 default
#declare Rope_LengthChunks    = 100; //1000 default

and what is the scale of some of your scene elements?
