I saw in the files these LUA thingys and I would like to know what they are for. So far I have found no use for them, but they must be an essential part. (Why else would they put them in the files?)

no it doesn't thats the mastertextfile. In fact, its ALL in the mastertextfile, and linked in the XMLs. nothing to do with lua.

Yea use notepad, but the code takes a read or two to fully understand. And the editor comes with decompiled luas. the editor doesn't actually decomplie them itself. lol swfan and i posted at the same time
