Did I mess up something somewhere? If i put a putsxy in the same box, it renders a string just fine, but for some reason this code hates objects. What this code is supposed to do is render a set of randomly positioned 't's on the screen, and this works fine without objects. However, when I add objects, nothing renders. What am I doing wrong? Help is much appreciated. Code is as follows:

You have these arguments reversed:

table.insert(obj1, objects)

This should be:

table.insert(objects, obj1)

Same applies to obj2, obj3 etc.
