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?)
Campaign Story Triggers Game Object Definitions AI Routines, Patterns etc. Terrain Evaluators
i think it has something to do with the names and descriptions of units
no, that is the MasterTextFileENGLISH.DAT...LUA's control AI, and a lot of other stuff..
no it doesn't thats the mastertextfile. In fact, its ALL in the mastertextfile, and linked in the XMLs. nothing to do with lua.
Oh well, but does lua stand for something and is there any tools i need to edit it with
you have to have the map editor, .luas cant be editted normally, the edito decompiles then.
But still, how do you edit them?
Open in Notepad.
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
