    LuAA is an Ace Attorney Casemaker scripted using <a href="http://lua.com/lua/" target="_blank">Lua</a>. This project is very community-based, so comments/questions/bug reports are always welcome. This will be open source.

    <!--coloro:#317BFF--><span style="color:#317BFF"><!--/coloro--><!--sizeo:200--><span style="font-size:12pt;line-height:100%"><!--/sizeo-->GENERAL INFORMATION::<!--sizec--></span><!--/sizec--><!--colorc--></span><!--/colorc-->

    <b>What makes LuAA special?</b>

    LuAA is an engine that combines flexibility within an easy-to-use user interface. Using Lua, a very versatile and popular programming language now (even Blizzard is using it for developing World of Warcraft add-ons), LuAA combines the Micro Lua DS library with custom functions embedded for use in emulating an Ace Attorney gaming environment.

    <b>Are there any applications required for the use of LuAA?</b>

    Besides the tools, emulators and editors (such as Lua editors, I prefer notepad myself ^^) included with the LuAA repository, there will never be a need for any exterior applications to be used for LuAA.

    <b>What image/audio formats does LuAA support?</b>

    In terms of images, LuAA supports .jpg/.gif/.png images. These images need not be parsed into binary files, etc.; they are loaded from their raw formats.

    In terms of audio, LuAA supports .mod/.s3m/.xm/.it (module files) for background music. LuAA also supports .wav files for sound effects.

    <b>Where would I be able to learn Lua?</b>

    You should not need to fully utilize Lua's power when using the engine for simple tasks. However, if you wish to expand your knowledge or extend the power of the Micro Lua DS engine, here are some resources (I myself used ^^):

    <a href="http://www.lua.org/manual/5.1/index.html" target="_blank">http://www.lua.org/manual/5.1/index.html</a>
    <a href="http://lua-users.org/wiki/LuaDirectory" target="_blank">http://lua-users.org/wiki/LuaDirectory</a>
    <a href="http://lua-users.org/wiki/LuaTutorial" target="_blank">http://lua-users.org/wiki/LuaTutorial</a>

    Again, if you have questions on how to use the engine/Lua itself, I am always welcome <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

    <!--coloro:#317BFF--><span style="color:#317BFF"><!--/coloro--><!--sizeo:200--><span style="font-size:12pt;line-height:100%"><!--/sizeo-->PLATFORMS::<!--sizec--></span><!--/sizec--><!--colorc--></span><!--/colorc-->

    LuAA will be supported on:

    <b>Windows:</b>
    no$gba emulator
    Micro Lua DS simulator

    <b>Linux:</b>
    With wine:
    no$gba emulator

    Without wine:
    Micro Lua DS simulator

    <b>Mac OSX:</b>
    With wine:
    no$gba emulator

    Without wine:
    Micro Lua DS simulator

    <b>Nintendo DS:</b>
    With a flashcard, you can boot LuAA onto it and play it from there <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

    DEMO!

    <a href="http://www.mediafire.com/?432djngmih3" target="_blank">http://www.mediafire.com/?432djngmih3</a>

    You must run this demo using no$gba emulator, which you can download here:

    <a href="http://nocash.emubase.de/gba.htm" target="_blank">http://nocash.emubase.de/gba.htm</a>

    It will not run on an actual DS (you can, however, run it on an actual DS if you have the FAT version).

    Yes it will run on a PC! This means a port is usually not needed if you choose to make the game directly with LuAA! Have fun ^^

    Here's an example script:

    The API should be fairly simple enough, I will dim it down if I need to!

    I can't wait until it's released. Hopefully it won't be too hard for me to learn to use...

    The last one was very dissatisfying, I disliked the entire system it was based upon.

    This one will be open-source, working and as bug-exempt as possible.

    - Added support for large map capability (examining locations larger than 256 x 192)
    - Added support for extended hotspots (hotspots with areas beyond 256 x 192)

    Is LUAA even out, let alone cases for it? Agree that swapping cases would be good, ideally with a rating system. Been holdin off learning AADS as this has been in the works for a while. Would love an .nds version even just of the demo. Playing the emulator doesn't feel the same. Very excited for this to finally come out

    I have to say that I want this sooooo much.

    Just played through PWAA 1-3 and am playing Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney at the moment, so LuAA looks pretty exciting!
    The scripting doesn't look too complicated, the hardest part will probably be coming up with a challenging and exciting case!

    And concerning the original game resources, will you provide a repository like the last casemaker or provide instructions on how we can extract the resources ourselves? Because I would like to be able to do it myself without having to wait for the 'official' repository to be updated (and then download resources I already have), like if a new AA game comes out for example. Oh, and what format is the original music in, and can we use it in our cases? I ask this because the music that plays during witness testimony in the first PW game still gives me goosebumps, I felt like it was hypnotizing me to pay attention. [​IMG]

    Also, I assume we will get things like the Psyche Locks from the PW series, but Apollo Justice has something new, a bracelet that helps you focus while a witness is making testimony and you can zoom in on them to read tell-tale body language when they are nervous, unsure, or flat-out lying. It's kind of like Phoenix Wright meets the TV show 'Lie To Me.' I am rather passionate about deception analysis, and would love for this to be included in LuAA at some stage.

    Thanks for your hard work on this B12Core, I am eagerly awaiting release.

    Umm.. B12Core appears to be no longer developing this homebrew application...

    Well, that's disappointing, where did you come across this information?
    And, was the source ever made available so others could finish it off??
    I am kind of intimidated by PWlib and as was stated before, AADS is just fail.
    This looked like an effective way of creating cases easily without worrying too much about the programming aspect of it.
    *sighs* Might as well take another look at PWLib then...

    Edit: According to his blog, he's waiting for a libnds lua wrapper to be released...

    I've been currently active in the community, just inactive in programming this.

    Long story short, the engine I was previously using to program LuAA with was unstable. I had been testing the engine solely on the emulator and not on actual hardware, which subsequently lead to memory leak issues when loaded onto a flashcard. Thus, I had decided to program my own variation on a Lua engine, 'tequiLua'. It was within a month, however, that fincs (the maintainer of PALib) had plans of his own Lua engine. I felt that he was a better candidate to take on this job, there really was no point in both of us doing the same job and I am currently waiting on the release of his engine to continue working on LuAA.

    If he so happens to cancel his project or delay the project past August 1st, 2010, I will do my part and continue 'tequiLua' in order to get LuAA back up and running.

    It's unfortunate that things have come to this, I know I've let a lot of people down, but I will get back on this and hopefully help you guys get the casemaking engine you seek. Feel free to look at PyWright, Ace Attorney Online and PWLib, casemaking engines for the PC, during the meantime.

    Thanks for your reply B12Core, glad to hear from you!

    That's cool about the timeframe, it'll probably take me until August to get my script planning and organization phases down anyway. [​IMG]

    Will there need to be a specific naming convention for files similar to MechaBowser's CaseMaker, e.g. "WrightSweat_T.gif"?

    I know it won't be out for a while, I just want to make sure things are organized properly beforehand.
    Thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    Well, it's organized similar to PyWright's file format.

    So, the normal talking animation of Young Phoenix would be found:

    LuAA/art/char/Phoenix/young/normal(talk).png

    Blinking animations would then be:

    LuAA/art/char/Phoenix/young/normal(blink).png

    Action animations (animations that aren't looped but rather are simply played) would be:

    LuAA/art/char/Phoenix/young/action.png

    Hopefully that should answer your question?

    Case porter? I've been working on a casemaker, an engine that emulates Ace Attorney cases, not a porter though.

    Perhaps you're talking about PWSE by deufeufeu?
