I have a problem with the correct path to an image (for the overlay function).
I take this script for example: (its the beginning)

print("mod loaded: siloamount");

siloamounts = {};

function siloamounts:loadMap(name)

self.info_hudPath = Utils.getFilename("info_hud.png", g_currentModDirectory);
self.hud = Overlay:new("hud", self.info_hudPath, 0, 0, 1, 1);

self.loadedMap = name;

the output is:

print(siloamounts.baseDirectory) = ""
print(baseDirectory) = ""
print(g_currentModDirectory) = ""
print(self.info_hudPath) = "info_hud.png"

error: can't load Resource (info_hud.png)

I use the Gold Edition (update)

Thank you for your help.

try this:

self.info_hudPath = g_currentModDirectory.."info_hud.png";

g_currentModDirectory is only valid while the LUA file is being loaded.

self.baseDirectory is only valid for Specializations.

The way to solve this, is to store the directory in your own variable, while the LUA file is loaded.

So the first lines could look like this:

siloamounts = {};
siloamounts.modDirectory = g_currentModDirectory

And later you can use:
self.info_hudPath = Utils.getFilename("info_hud.png", siloamounts.modDirectory);
