i'm not so good at lua coding so i will give you a code example in xhtml/css
lets say i have an div with 50% width, the browser has a vieport of 1024px so the div has 512px, the problem is, my texture has a width off 50px and is repeatable on the x-axis. in xhtml/css i would code is like this:
<div id="foo" style="background-repeat: repeat-x;"> a lot of bar </div
but how i can code such thing in lua?
