I am not expert, but if i recall correctly, these are two ways to do it...

1) i "think" you can drag the icon for your code to the icon for your lowres program

2) the best solution is to define the extension for .NX to text files

... also, you cannot just use any text editor, as they often imbed hidden data that defines fonts, spacing, etc... you need one that doesnt add any of that...

My advice, i am sure, isnt 100%, as it has been awhile since i have worked with lowres on windows... so maybe someone else can provide more accurate advice :)

The "programming code" itself will be the same regardless of whether you use windows or apple

... as a side thought, if you want to make a game that can be played on ANY mobile phone, check out this game

You must use use ONLY touch controls, and limit the playable space, as i have done with this game... this will make the game playable on any phone using the webpage... otherwise, non apple phones cannot play your game....

BUT, most of the people who play these games have an apple phone, so no worries ;) i just added that info just in case you have a non-apple friend who wants you to make them a game, like i did ;)

Sublime Text is perfect, I use it too :)
You can just open LowRes NX and drag your .nx file into the window. At the same time you can have Sublime Text open and work on the code.
In LowRes NX press Ctrl+r to reload/restart your program, when you want to test your changes.
