Hi Paul!

Currently I am only interested in the Windows platform. Once I get things running there I might look into others but for now I just want to make a proof of concept. Since I am basically editing the binary code of the executable it's actually a bit more complicated in many different terms. ^^

If you've seen my answer to Charles you should know where I intend to go with this. It's an evil hack that requires modifying the assembly code of the executable and not only let it load and execute a dll I want to "inject" but also talk to the Lua VM and register new built-in functions located in that dll such that people in Lua can call them.

But let's see .. so far this has been a long try and error trip with more error than try :D

I know nothing about Supreme Commander except what I've read in the

saying that Supreme Commander runs on both Windows and XBox 360.

I also know very little about Steam, but if you're wanting to extend
the Steam version, the Supreme Commander API reference [3] might be a
good place to start. You might also need to take a look at the Steam
API [4].

But you might consider waiting until you hear from someone who knows
way more than I do about Lua and games. There's no shortage of that
kind of people on this list.

[4] Search for steam api. That produced several different steam API
references but I suspect you'll find a more integrated resource once
you register and get inside steam at
