i updated project and i have this error, in Scripts/GUI/Button.lua:


Can you consider not modifying the Main.lua on project update? not a big problem just annoying.

I try to avoid updating it when possible.

The styles system for GUI widgets has changed slightly. Your styles are built-in constants like this:

I will update the docs today.

The style system change results in a lot of manual source updating and since i make use of the GUI system in basicly all of my projects, that's alot of code to change.
Maiby i will have to write a small tool that does it for me... i guess notepad++ could achieve it 
nonetheless nice work on the update.

One question, to use the online multiplayer, do I have to have steam with all the privileges

This is because my account is limited to steam.

I have released the online player example, but I don't know how to test it locally.  I have a "Test Yue" server

I think I don't quite understand the concept of online in leadwerks.

I mean, can you only play players who have a steam account?
If it is correct, how can I create a game and test it?

It's trying to create a server on another computer and I got a "we couldn't create the server, fails" sign.

There is a text file called steam_appid.txt that contains an app id. If you include that you can operate under the dummy “Spacewar” game.

I can not understand, to create the server I need to have the steam account open, otherwise it does not work to create a server.

The file you idces has a number 480.

I got a steam message that I've been banned by something called VAC.

Valve Anti-Trap System (VAC)
VAC locks are permanent, non-negotiable and cannot be removed by the Steam Support team.

If a VAC lock is determined to have been applied by mistake, it will be automatically removed. If you would like to discuss Valve's anti-cheating system with the Community, you can do so here.

Because my account is limited and I did not purchase five dollars.
