Ring Settings - A simple options menu, WIP

Ring Settings is something I've been working on due to the dearth of simple systems for managing options in-game. It isn't complete yet, but it does work, even on Android. http://i.imgur.com/t1wzGb9.png Without further ado, here is Ring Settings on GitHub . The actual library is contained in settin...

Re: Nil value problem

They are rightfully nil at the outset, when you attempt to use them. They're defined in your update function, which hasn't run yet. An associated problem. Currently player.posX and player.posY will never be updated. You must set those values from within the update function. Updating mousePosX and mo...

les, lightweight entity system + snake example game

les is a love / lua / lightweight entity system said thusly in my head. Why, you ask? Because hey, you can never have too many . Actually, it was because I couldn't really wrap my mind around practical usage. I figured if I made my own I might truly grok it. The code is short and readable (imho). U...

Re: Warlock's Tower - A Movement Puzzle

I believe it was level 2 room 6, but that could be wrong (I was piping the output to /dev/null and couldn't get it to reoccur). This leads me to the two other things I noticed. First,...

Re: Recommended code reads?

The lua code I learned the most from might have been rxi's flux library. It was totally outside of my normal way of thinking, and you know it's good because it's short, readable, and works flawlessly.

Re: Love.physics hit detection question

Okay, I feel bad I left you hanging. Hopefully you've already figured it all out, but just in case you're stuck, here are the alterations I made to get everything working as you'd expect. function love.mousepressed(button) local ballx, bally = objects.ball.body:getPosition() local mx, my = love.mous...

Re: Love.physics hit detection question

Running into two problems now: The game crashes whenever a bullet hits something because the draw is trying to access a table that doesn't exist. Only the last bullet created is processed in the beginContact. These are actually one problem. Consider this: What is truly necessary to make sure beginC...
