Default New script: Oblique Strategies

Time for a new script from tompad!

tompad_obliques is a reascript that randomly shows text
from Oblique Strategies every time when running script.

Read more about Oblique Strategies here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oblique_Strategies

Install with ReaPack! https://reapack.com/
(when ReaPack is installed - search for tompad OR obliques in ReaPack)

And yes - you need Lokasenna GUI installed.

Any comments on coding, requests, bugs etc is welcome!
PM me (tompad) on Reaper Forum (https://forum.cockos.com/member.php?u=19103).

You can still integrate "math.randomseed(os.time())" to get a random value right at the first start of the script.

Hello,
I suddently have an error message and the script is not working anymore:

tompad_obliques.lua:24: attempt to call a nil value

What is this and why does come up?

Thank you!


EDIT: I already tried to remove + reinstall it.

Did you move your script folder, or copy your Reaper install to a new machine?

That line is actually trying to load my GUI library, which this script uses, but it's not finding it in the path that Reaper has saved.

Try:
- Use your system's file search to locate "Set Lokasenna_GUI v2 library path.lua"
- In the Action List, "Run a ReaScript"
- Browse to where you found the install script above and run it. You should see a message confirming that the path has been saved.

(Alternatively, install/reinstall "Lokasenna's GUI library v2 for Lua" on ReaPack, after which the script is available in your action list)

Any scripts using my GUI should now work.

Thanks Lokasenna for chiming in! :-)

Thank you Lokasenna & tompad! Problem solved.
I love this script, I have a card deck of the Oblique Strategies and it's nice to have it as well within Reaper.
