Re: Does lua tables match with my logic?

You're not, because that doesn't exist - he probably confused those with parenthesis because of the table indexing above that. You can call a function with curly brackes, though, because you can omit the parenthesis if the only argument passed is a table or string literal.

Re: Löve Frames - A GUI Library

Is there any specific reason why the text object's method "DrawText" is in the object file rather than in the skin? BTW, I ported Löve Frames to MTA:SA - http://imgur.com/WDp1AdC - this is VERY slow, though. From about 30FPS with camera faded out, to less than 5 FPS - that's about an 84% performance...

Static x and y are the object's position relative to its parent's position.
Thanks! That makes perfect sense now, don't know how I couldn't figure it out myself :)

Re: What's everyone working on? (tigsource inspired)

I wrote a Flappy Bird clone in the last weekends for fun - it's not finished, the code is quite (more than quite!) messy and physics aren't exactly like in the original game. I don't feel like finishing it right now, but I might pick it up later. At the moment, I'm working on a port of the Love Fram...

Re: Löve Frames - A GUI Library

I see, thanks to both of you :P I'd rather use the releases feature from GitHub to avoid these problems, just a suggestion.

I know that. I had an idea it'd probably be that it's unnecessary, just like in many functions of this library I saw parameters which are never used but I thought there was an explanation for it.

Re: Löve Frames - A GUI Library

I am porting this library (and eventually re-writing most of it to meet my needs) for Multi Theft Auto and I came across something which I don't understand: local height = font:getHeight(curline:sub(i, i)) on file textinput.lua (I don't know the exact line because I have modified the file already). ...

Re: What's everyone working on? (tigsource inspired)

I'm not really much into Lua at the moment, though I am still working on a Lua team deathmatch mode for my clan's gameserver and basically, while I was working on it, I had the idea of writing a small OS just for learning purposes. I am also working on a project for Vice City, but it's really just a...
