Re: List of LUA Tutorials/Resources
The bottom of the FSO wiki scripting page also has links to the official Lua docs.

Re: List of LUA Tutorials/Resources
I'm getting a 404 on the scripting.html....  I also can't create one at the moment.

EDIT: Found a reference to a hidden Wiki article: http://www.hard-light.net/wiki/index.php/Scripting_functions

Re: List of LUA Tutorials/Resources
You should use the documentation generated by FSO. There is a flag in the Dev Tools section in the launcher. That will make sure that you always use the documentation that is up-to date for the build you are currently using.

Re: List of LUA Tutorials/Resources
I have generated it before.  I really did not have access to FSO at the time.

...And you couldn't just download it? It's not like generating a scripting.html would require any assets...

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

When you gaze long into BMPMAN, BMPMAN also gazes into you.

"I am one of the best FREDders on Earth" -General Battuta

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<IronWorks> I am useful for FSO stuff again. This is a red-letter day!

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.
