Function

New version of the flashy deaths effect by Wanderer. You may wish to check out the script's thread on HLP.

Please note that this script requires two additional files in .cfg format whose specs can be found below.

---------------
-- functions --

--- get newline and make sure its lowercase
function get_next_line(nfile)
   -- read the line
   nline = nfile:read("*l")
   -- change to lowercase
   if nline ~= nil then
      nline = nline:lower()
