@theCJarmy7 A: Probably enough light to read, but enough shade so that it doesn't light up the whole room.
Q: How to eat a sandwich?
A: Get it into your mouth. PD: This is intended to be scripting questions
Q: Does Replicated Storage replicate from clients to server with FE?
A - Remote functions and events
Q - What's the best way for going about creating a 2D video? Do you upload all the individual frames or do you try to find patterns in the frames that pre-load them (create the images from scratch)?
Sorry if my question seems specific, though even just having someone else's opinion on this would be nice.
A: ROBLOX does really suck at assets and you must upload thousands of images just to upload a freaking gif (And script the image changing, too). For making a 2D video, I'm afraid you will need to upload the video frame by frame, decal by decal and make a script that changes the decal to the next and preloads all of them too. Anyways, if you can, it is better if you use gui elements and make the video in-studio with tweens and so on as to not upload that much decals. Your choice.
Q: How do I detect if a server is a VIP server?
I don't understand. The VIPServerId can help me identify if the server is VIP, but how?
@LateralLace A: One focuses more on the signal, one focuses more on the connection.
@Aimarekin I'm not sure how the two strings differ, but you can just check what the non-VIP server string is, and then you would know what the VIP string can't be.
Q: Which is better? game:GetService("Players") or game.Players?
A: Players does always exist when scripts are ran, so there is no need of using GetService. For more comfortability, I simply use game.Players , due to that using game:GetService("players") is pointless because the service always does exist. Instead, with other services like RunService, you must use GetService because it is possible that the service is not created yet.
Q: This function creates VIP servers: http://wiki.roblox.com/index.php?title=API:Class/TeleportService/ReserveServer . If you create a VIP server with tha, who is the owner of the server? nil?
PD: I am amazed how well this topic is going
@Aimarekin I love how you say
I am amazed how well this topic is going and then nobody replies for months.
A: That function doesn't create VIP servers, it is mentioned in the wiki to be
reserved, I don't believe it has anything to do with VIP servers.
Q: What uses does
GetService does its job and creates the service if it doesn't exist.
FindService simply looks for the service, similar to
FindFirstChild will look for a specific child. In contrast,
GetService, well, gets the service whether it's there or not. For example, if
Teams isn't there and you call
FindService for it, it'll return
nil, but with
GetService it'll get
GetRoleInGroup cache, what're the alternatives?
@theCJarmy7 A: Yes, but only for mobile devices if I recall correctly. It was quickly removed due to the hate it received, and the fact that developers would pack games with ads in order to make a quick buck
Q: What is your favorite function/service in Roblox Lua that is either deprecated, removed or one that nobody uses?
