Progress is a Shiny and Golden Happy Thing!

First, I've noticed this blog thing doesn't seem to be overly interactive! If you have thoughts on my thoughts feel free to let me know!

Busy this week slaving for Bliss for her quest, not really too much else going on!

Finally a breakthrough on some of the troubles I was having with integrating Lua. The trouble was mostly that script files weren't loading but there was no clue as to where or why or even how they were failing. With a little more research I figured out how to properly pull the error messages from the stack and I'm back in business. It’s a breakthrough only though, I've still got some strange crashes that makes me thing something is stomping on memory somewhere.

Since I've had people ask I'll try to explain a little of what it is and what I'm doing. Lua is just a lightweight scripting language that we want to use to enhance what is already there. It doesn't really do anything on its own, doesn't add any fancy features and if I finished tomorrow and installed it you'd likely not notice a difference at all. Well maybe you might if I don't fix the random crashing... The interesting side of it and how I would like to use it to begin with is to overhaul the quest system. Because it is so flexible I'm really hoping it can help me bring quests that are more than just finding the random mob in the world and bring back its stuff. I guess we'll see.... after i get it working that is.


The (updated) legal stuff: This does not mean it will happen, this does not mean it'll be in v5, this does not mean it’s a rule or a policy, this does not mean it’s about a specific person (except in certain cases), this is not intended to call out anyone, this does not mean anyone but ME thinks this way, this is not always the opinion of the other God+ staff, this doesn't mean that I'll finish what I started, this does not mean anything more than I happened to be pondering something. k thx bai!
