Hey Everyone!

The title may be confusing ,but here is my problem and all. I want it so that I can open the file called "player.info" and use the contents and put them in a table that have which is tankInfo. What happens is that when it goes to draw the tank it reports back an expected number error. For example if I assigned the color in the tankInfo table to playercolor which is in the file we opened it says an expected number. Yes I have tried tonumber. Here is the pastebin code;

Here is the main code:


Here is the contents of the file:


From lines 90 - 97 opens the player.info file. From lines 115 - 123 is the table with the tank and in the player.info file (the second link) it is from lines 3 - 8.

Live On!

You should store just the color name, then use colors[handle.readLine()] to get the number.
