Lua Script Behind Downloaded Instruments

#1 Post by AnthonySullivan » Thu Sep 24, 2020 9:32 am

When creating your own instruments, it is very helpful to read the Lua script that others have used when creating theirs.
AM provides a number of instruments for use under the "Create/Edit" tab and you can see the Lua script that was used.

However there are also a large number of instruments that can be downloaded and added to panels. The problem is that I cannot find a way to show these in the Create/Edit tab or see the Lua script behind them.

Would it be possible to provide this facility?

yours sincerely

Hi Anthony,

Only premium instruments have locked code. All other instruments can be viewed in the create/edit tab.
Also the code can be opened in the "OPEN_DIRECTORY"
C:\Users\Keith\Air manager BETA\instruments\OPEN_DIRECTORY

Note that to get the store instruments into beta you have to download in 3.7 or earlier then copy the UUID and paste into the beta folder.

AMD RAZEN 9 5950X CPU, Corsair H80I cooler, ASUS TUF GAMING B550-PLUS AMD Ryzen Mother Board,  32Gb ram Corsair Vengeance 3000Mh, MSI GTX960 4G graphics card

In certain instances a large amount of effort was undertaken by others to create detailed instruments and panels. When the code is not available for you to view for these please understand that not just in the world of Air Manager, but in life in general the old saying “there’s no such thing as a free lunch” rings true.
