Re: "Variable nil" error

Oh right, I also meant to ask - if it was only recognizing two variables, why did it throw the error at py instead of px, which came first?

Re: Creating Tables on Command

make a function that is called every time you click the mouse that passes the mouse's coordinates like this: numclicks = 0 clickdata = {} function addclickdata(x, y) clickdata[numclicks] = {} clickdata[numclicks].x = x clickdata[numclicks].y = y numclicks = numclicks + 1 end EDIT: I used slightly di...
