January 20th, 2007, 20:36
This is the Beta to LuaChase, I haven't made collision yet and is very basic, you'll need LuaPlayer though (Can't get it to load from XMB)
This is my first ever Lua Game.

If someone wants to make it into a Eboot so you can load from XMB you can I was having troubles

Ok, here is a guide to making a eboot for your lua scripts to run directly from the xmb (no need for luaplayer)

right then,

1. First of all get the "luaplayer" and "luaplayer%" folders (for 1.5 eboot) or just the "luaplayer" folder (for 1.0 + 2.xx eboot) (i reccomend using v0.16)

2. Next, delete everything inside the "luaplayer" folder except the "eboot" and the "system" folder.

3. Now delete the "libary" folder (located inside the "system" folder, and then all that should be left in the system folder is a lua file named "system.lua".

4. Then put all of your lua script/s (one has to be "index.lua" for it to load) into the "luaplayer" folder.

5. Rename the folders "luaplayer" (for 1.0 + 2.xx users) or both the "luaplayer" & "luaplayer%" folders to whatever your game is called. Remember to keep the "%" in the name of the second folder (for 1.5 users) or it wont work. For example "game" & "game%".

5. Customise your eboot (contained in the "luaplayer" or whatever you named the folder *(for 1.0 + 2.xx users) or in the "luaplayer%" or whatever you named the folder (for 1.5 users) using an application called "PspBrew".

6. Put the "luaplayer" or whatever you named the folder, into the psp/game directory (for 1.0 + 2.xx users) or both the "luaplayer" & "luaplayer% or whatever you named the folder (for 1.5 users) into the psp/game directory.

7. Play your game from the xmb/menu!

I know thats Zions guide I saw just that it always says that System/INDEX.LUA: no such file or directory.

Make sure Index.lua is present in the System folder.
