Re: Some other computer...

Well, at least with the current version of the love.physics engine, a higher framerate and more updates means that certain things like joint restraints become more accurate. This makes the experience slightly different on each computer, and could even lead to messing with actual mechanics. This is a...

Re: Some other computer...

This is strange. I've been making my Löve games on my own 64bit Vista computer, and when I play my games on other computers (A 32bit Vista, and the old XP school computers) they all run the game faster. There is a literal increase from steady 60 FPS on my PC to between 200-400 FPS on the other compu...

Code: Select all

should call print with all arguments.

You just put the "..." in the parenthesis. to access them you use "arg" as a table.

Re: Fonts!

Haha. Put this at the start of your draw callback.

Code: Select all

	if(not shake) then
		shake = 3
	end
	love.graphics.rotate(shake)
	shake = shake * -1
	if(shake > 0) then
		shake = math.random()*3
	end
You should totally keep that in. And add some way to rotate around a different point.

Re: Support for saving/loading the Lua state?

The way I set it up, a "save" file is just a single line of Lua code saved as text to a file, which returns a table that holds all the info for that level. Then you can just go dofile("levelname"), and you've got the level back.

Re: API Wars

I definitely support going entirely radian. It would be a lot more consistent. And as for input devices, it would be neat if you could define a "controller" object or something, and the assign functions/callbacks to certain code-defined outputs of the controller. You would be able to easily switch b...

Re: Changing keyboard input into characters.

What about stuff like parenthesis? I mean you could go through and do an if statement for each key, but surely it's not that bad, is it?

Re: LÖVE! On an iPod touch?

Oh man. I would love this so much. Though, I wonder what the exact limits are on "interpreted code". I mean, I've got an app called "Stanza" that basically allows you to download books in the form of text files from anywhere you want. Lua files aren't that far from plain text. And if you were really...

Re: Transparency issues

Would a different image format not have this problem? Like if I used .gif instead?
