[gamemodes\simplebuild\gamemode\cl_init.lua:18] function arguments expected near '='


Compare that line to what it is supposed to be.

Thats what the tut says to do and i tryed editing / playing with it but it still doesn’t work

Infact copy pasting the whole thing it still wont work

How about you show us line 18 of cl_init.lua.

I’ll help you.
Add me on STEAM.

[lua]
include( ‘shared.lua’ ) // load shared.lua DUH
function set_team()

Ready = vgui.Create( “DFrame” )
Ready:SetPos( ScrW() / 2,ScrW() / 2 )
Ready:SetSize( 175, 74 )
Ready:SetTitle( “Are You ready to build?” )
Ready:SetVisible( true )
Ready:SetDraggable( false )
Ready:ShowCloseButton( false )
Ready:MakePopup()
ready1 = vgui.Create( “DButton”, Ready )
ready1:SetPos( 20,25 )
ready1:SetSize( 140, 40 )
ready1:SetText( “Fuck Yeah!” )
ready1:DoClick = function()
RunConsoleCommand( “sb_team1” )

end

end
concommand.Add( “sb_start”, set_team
[/lua]

So Its blank…
Its not the only problem

I really want learn but… Im haveing a hard time
( How do you do the numbered line one?

It’s

[lua]

ready1.DoClick

– not

ready1:DoClick

[/lua]

There is no point in typing all of this, just copy paste the code; the thing you should be doing is looking up all the lines you don’t understand or ask about them in here if it’s a rather general problem.

I did copy paste after a while and it still didnt work

I take it the tut is a bit outdated?
But when its teaching me to use : instead of .

And i dont know any better… Blah

I’;ll try this now

Thats alos not line 18

Line 18 is blank

It didn’t teach you to do it the wrong way; you made an error. It happens, get over it.

While the tutorial might be a bit outdated and not the best you could find, it is still correct and if you run into a syntax error in your code, chances are you screwed up.

Also, if you paste an error that tells me that you have an error on line 18, then paste the corresponding file with a blank line 18, you are either bullshitting me or yourself.

Like I said, go through the code, even copy paste it if you have to get it right. If you have questions about specific parts of the code you do not understand, ask them here.

Edit:Talked over the IRC channel and am geting help
