directly.  The previous games I've worked on used DLLs for their
modification and scripting, so issues like conversion between compiled
and scripted data structures never really came up.

I've read Roberto's book, but it's 4.0 only and doesn't cover 4.1, and

(or vice versa).

Learning Lua itself isn't that difficult, it's the integration with a
