Thanks for the quick reply!
If I change it to lua_call(VM, 1, 0) the interpreter goes into error and stops executing my script.
So if I do:
msg("Will show")
msg("Won't show")
...the second message won't show. (note: 'msg' is a function to simply show a message box).
Shouldn't I somehow push 'self' onto the stack before doing the call? Is this the same as pushing the metatable onto the stack? (just guessing here :)
    Thanks again,

I'm trying to call a function called 'init' in a table from C++. Currently this is what I've got:
int cGameObject::start(lua_State *VM)
// first get the table
 lua_pushstring(VM, m_TableName);        // m_TableName = "GameObject" in this example
 lua_gettable(VM, LUA_GLOBALSINDEX);
// get the 'init' function from the table
 lua_pushstring(VM, "init");
 lua_gettable(VM, -2);
// call the function
 lua_call(VM, 0, 0);
return 0;

Try using
lua_call(VM, 1, 0)
since you have 1 argument to pass (self is the first argument).

Note t:f() is semantically the same as t.f(t)

Hope that helps,
