I'm back with the version 4.7.2, which fixes the Sprites module that wouldn't work due to removed functions from Lua in its new version.
If you don't want to do a "full" update, just have a look at "II.2) Manual fix".
3DS owners : please choose the adequate version to avoid the time bug!
II. Installation manual
1) Normal installation
There is nothing easier than installing MicroLua on your linker!
First of all, download the package then extract it somewhere on your computer. Once done, simply copy the folder lua on the root of your linker along with the binary MicroLua 4.7.2.nds (although the latter can be put anywhere).
Now test the installation: power your console and run MicroLua! If everything is okay you should see the shell of MicroLua (some king of home homebrew) which look like this:
If you play on a 3DS, you may be victim of a bug that prevents time from being updated. The specific version for your console should "fix" this problem by activating our workaround, so please check in the shell that the hour is updated correctly. If not, re-download the version indicated by "[3DS]".
2) Manual fix
As said in the quick introduction, this update is only a fix for an important but easy to fix bug. You can then avoid an entire download and replacement by fixing yourself this bug (this is actually more like a workaround that I make you do, but it is simpler for you users ). If you are a new user, this section is not for you, simply follow the instructions for the normal installation here-above.
So this "fix" is very similar to the way we fix the time bug on 3DS: we will add some code snippet to "myboot.lua" in the folder "lua". If you have the 3DS version of MicroLua, you already have a such file so you only need to complete it with the code snippet that follows. Otherwise, simply create the file "myboot.lua" and put this code into it:
|ULUA_VERSION = "4.7.2" |
table.getn = function (tab)
The 3DS version already has the first and last lines, do not put them again. The first changes the displayed version with a trick, and the last one commands the return to the normal boot sequence (and a single command is enough).
IV. Readme please!
