    As the title says, I always get the error :

    ... (LuaException) Error code 2, [string "/xxx.lua"]:38: (LuaConversionException) Error converting LuaValue to type 'i'
    Here's my code :

    ( it feels like world.spawnMonster does'nt return a EntityId type, but a LuaValue type, don't know why ... )

    Bind.create("g", function()
        cusorPosition = tech.aimPosition()
        local monsterId = world.spawnMonster("micropo", cusorPosition, { level = 1 })
        if world.entityExists(monsterId) then    -- << ERROR HERE
    Pretty simple uh ? I still don't get why it fails ...

    Thanks everyone! :)

    Have you tried logging the monsterId directly after fetching it? Maybe you also could check whether the ID is a correct one, and not a nil-value due to an error in the spawning of the monster.
