Anyone successfully using Lua(5.0) under Visual Studio(C++).NET? I''ve looked around and have not seen any mention of people doing this. Thanks for responses in advance. Dave "Dak Lozar" Loeser

We do.

Actually it''s still the beta build, since we are using LuaPlus which has not been released with Lua 5 final yet.

Is there anything in particular you want to know?

Hi TroneX,
Thanks for the response... actually, I don''t have any specific questions. I suppose I was testing the water before jumping in... Its good to know that the water isn''t freezing

Thanks,

Hehe ... tutorials are a great thing ;-)

I mostly used the Enigma sources to get inspired of what you can do with Lua. But while Enigma uses toLua for exposing classes and variables to Lua (hence the name), I use LuaPlus. In fact, I didn''t even ever compile Enigma ;-)

Lua rocks !

I have to say, after a coding session yesterday (I was off work yesterday, due to the Oaks - a pre Kentucky Derby event at Churchill Downs which, here in Louisville is considered a holiday) and a moderate session today, I think Lua is going to do the trick.

I need to find a method to speed up the process of exposing C++ functions to Lua - or maybe I just need to take a look at toLua? Anyone have any experience using toLua?

Game On...

toLua works, although I haven''t tried it with Lua 5.

Creating MSVC 7 projects for Lua 5 (both beta and release) was very straightforward. It works fine.
