At first i like to say that im really happy with Koneki, ty for your effort.

I use moai, and i run it with a run.bat file as external configuration.

The settings are:
location: {workspace_loc:/run.bat}
working directory: {workspace_loc:/}

This is working fine, and when i do print("bla") in lua, it prints me "bla" into the console.

But the worse thing is that it looks like the console is only updated after the lua programm ends.

When i start the run.bat manually from explorer then i can see the prints and error messages in "realtime", why is this not working in the console?

i hoped console is just anyhow replacing the cmd window or something

This is because the stdout buffer is not flushed on each print.
To fix that, without modification of your code, you should execute this line in your run.bat

The full line should look like that :
lua -e "io.stdout:setvbuf('line'); require('debugger')();" MyApp.lua;

Hope this helps you Wink
