Good idea.

Now I do it exactly like you said. My problem (at the time of my
posting) was that I didn't terminate enigma when looking into
stderr.txt. Enigma doesn't write anything there before termination..

Now that I get error messages from lua it's definitely much more fun
to build levels.

I've just uploaded another new level to the patch area, which needs
the most recent (upcoming) version of ant.lua (I've included it as

I would be glad to receive a short message if anybody solves this
