I don't really have a problem with this since the Lua C API is very easy to use and most of the tricky work can be done in Lua and a simple function call made, rather than do the work in C. -- I would like the details of where to find the tolua patch though since I have another project which needs tolua5. Thanks.

I ended up downloading luacheia5, which had the luaSDL stuff built-in.
That's all I really wanted to use tolua5 for.

I think the plan will then be to check in my changes and test the game for cracks before proceeding. We may have to do some multiplayer tests. I may be able to test this at home if I can get q2x compiling on my linux box. I don't really want to spend a lot of time on that though.

Someone broke Linux compilation pretty fricking thoroughly.  Current CVS
is a mess and I frankly don't know how it even compiles on Windows.
I'll see what I can do about it.
