Lua Sprite Mega Tutorial v2.5 (Parts I-XX)zardOz2 - Custom level - from Android
NOTE: THIS IS INTENDED TO BE PLAYED FROM EDIT MODE SO THE CODE INSTRUCTIONS CAN BE READ AND TESTED.
Part I: this:draw_sprite() basics
Very detailed description of the nine values of the this:draw_sprite() command.

Whew 20 parts! All done, except for any minor fixes, this is lagging pretty bad for me. I'll probably do a smaller Line Draw tutorial in this style and maybe some new parts tutorials...stay tuned.
Any feedback from lua noobs on if this is helpful would be great!
Be prepared to read and play test!
