I can't believe you guys have been holding out on me for so long!
I read about Lua scripting a while back when considering doing some work on Monkey Island but never really looked into it. That was about 10 years ago and then last night I happened to notice Gens has Lua scripting capabilities and now I can't stop coding!
Here's what my Toejam and Earl screen looks like just now:
This is going to make figuring things out so much faster and more fun! I've done a handful of serious things (loops for all present locations, enemy locations and so on, display for the count down timer for presents) and some fun things (Press X to warp to the elevator).
Still don't quite think like a scripter though because I realised after 20 iterations of 'increase value in save state by 1 in hex editor, reload, note different, repeat) that I could just script an increment function to a key and edit the memory directly!
So, I'm sorry, this is a bit of a none descript topic, just wanted to say Lua scripting is awesome. Wouldn't mind hearing about some of your favourite scripts, functions or uses if anyone wants to share?
