In Response To: Re: Marathon Script Writing (PerseusSpartacus)

: : I'm interested in writing lua scripts for Marathon. I'm just not sure of
: all

: With any Aleph One download there should be a folder called 'Documentation'.
: Inside are three files: one is called "Lua_HUD.html", the next
: is "Lua.html", and the last is "MML.html". These
: document the language and parameters of, respectively Lua HUD scripts,
: regular Lua scripts, and MML scripts. These should all be quite valuable.

: MML is probably the simplest one of the three to grasp, and it still allows
: you to do lots of things; in particular, it allows you to temporarily
: alter the coding of the game. Regular Lua scripts are harder to
: understand, but they are likewise very dynamic, as they allow you to do
: lots of in-game actions, such as spawning monsters, playing sounds, and I
: believe even changing polygon heights, all of which are generally combined
: to create level-unique scripting (just split open the Phoenix map file and
: you'll see what I mean) or unique game types (such as Survival.lua).

: Vale,
: Perseus

Alrighty, thanks!
