Ah, we're in the 1.5 board now. Looking at Ken's instructions, did you install 1.5.0 (and 1.5.1 if necesssary) before jumping onto whichever build you're running now? I imagine that would cause things to go a little wonky.

It's possible I busted some of the CD reading with various things I've done for 1.5. You can copy the movie files from the CD though I'd have to check where you'd need to put them.

i really like what you've done with the place. the AI behavior and aiming are really improved and ScrapPool has certainly proven that the lua scripting callbacks have really opened things up.

Nicely done, sir.

The ordnance evasion was super-obnoxious for a while, making it nearly impossible to hit AI units at range with slow-moving projectiles. I retuned it for this build based on Sporkinator's feedback so it's a lot more fair now. (They still have good chance to evade but they don't respond instantaneously like they did before.)

I want to neaten up a few things with Lua scripting before winding down 1.5.2 but for the most part it seems feature-complete. My documentation could use some work since my lua script utilities reference manual isn't terribly helpful for people just starting out. It doesn't help that some functions only work in certain places. (That's a limitation of how some of the back-end systems work, not the script itself.)
