The lua console is essentially complete. At this point, it should be very easy to add anything I may need to it. I don’t need anything specific right away, so I plan on adding features as I need them and be done with the console. There is a tiny bug with the console buffer printing old strings that I may or may not fix - it’s visible in the video above. I get a warm feeling just playing with it, seeing characters pop-up and be removed dynamically. Is that weird? :)

Are you programming a game in a C compatible language and interested in integrating Lua in your game? Do it! The documentation is in-depth and there is a great community at It is easy to use. For me, the most helpful sections of the documentation was that of usertypes, and peaking at an example of usertypes in action.
