Hi! When I try to run this code, I get errors saying I didn't close IF statements that I did close...

(namely line 41)

Lua's "else if" statement is one word, "elseif". I ran into the same issue several times :)

What @yaky said. In lua syntax, you can do either of these:

 -- the lua elseif keyword way if blah then ... elseif foo then ... end -- same as what you had, but with a newline after else to clarify how it's parsed if blah then ... else if foo then ... end end

There are times when the second version is useful because you want to do a little prep work before, or cleanup after, you do the secondary if block.
