Rumours of a LUA enabled quake style console

I have a console thingy that works. But it doesn't work cleanly and it's not pretty. The things I'm messing about with now will probably become a GUI system. But I have really less than no experience in this area. On the one hand I,m tempted just to build something that will work but everything will be pretty hardcoded. I think this is the correct thing to do.

On the other hand I really should read more about UI design and all that. I'll probably be able to get the console thing more polished before then. . . but I don't really see it happening until this weekend :(

Unless I get a midweek drive to do some work. Maybe!

Here's a nice picture.

I've been enjoying reading your articles. Great site!

However, there seems to be a problem with the link to "1-2: Tiles" on the right. I get a 404 error.

Argh I thought this might happen. I was correcting some mistakes and I changed the title - therefore the link has changed!

I'll fix this tonight! Sorry!

Okay it should be fixed now. Though it may take a little time from the update to creep through bloggers various systems :D
