beginning LUA scripting issue
Hi ,

I'm at the very beginning with lua scripting, so I've read the wiki part to write a hello world ( http://www.hard-light.net/wiki/index.php/FS2_Open_Lua_Scripting#Quick.2C_a_full_example.21 )
I've created the scripting.tbl in the correct place, copy / paste the code given in the wiki, launched my game and...nothing , no hello world appears at splash screen.

So I wonder if I done all the necessary, I started to debug ( debug version of executable + debug windows ) but didn't give me more infos about why my script doesn't work.

Help !!
$Formula: ( every-time
   ( has-time-elapsed "0" )
   ( Do-Nothing
   )
   ( send-message
      "#Dalek"
      "High"
      "Pro-crasti-nate"
   )
   )
)
+Name: Procratination
+Repeat Count: 99999999999
+Interval: 1

Re: beginning LUA scripting issue
What build are you using? Hmmm... on a closer look there seems to be a problem with that example script (i haven't written or tested it...). It seems like the hooks mentioned in that example havent been added to the code... odd.

Here is something i wrote earlier and it should work... IIRC http://www.hard-light.net/wiki/index.php/Tutorial_-_Basic_Scripting

Do not meddle in the affairs of coders for they are soggy and hard to light

The HUD hello world works fine, thanks =)

Should be fixed in CVS now; I committed my local codebase. See the build.

Scripting.html increased in size by 8% (65kb to 70kb) :D

I can no longer sit back and allow communist infiltration, communist indoctrination, communist subversion, and the international communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.
