Re: Getting force from an angle?

Awesome! Thanks for all the replies. I think that little snippet of code is just want I need. I was trying to use math.atan2 for some reason... :P I'll be sure to read those links as well. Understanding the why is a key part to learning all this, and having it stick. I'll post an update when I get m...

Getting force from an angle? [Solved]

Hey there. I'm trying to start my second game using Lua and I decided to make a lunar lander game. It's going alright so far, but the main area I'm having trouble with is getting a correct force applied to my ship depending on its angle. Can anyone point me in the right direction as to what I could ...

Re: Single mouse button an issue?

But when I try to run the code in the tutorial (the code meant to only change the text when mouse button 1 is pressed) Are you talking about the using input tutorial?

I think it's right and its working now so no help is needed with this problem anymore thanks. I've actually moved on to the physics stuff and am trying ...

Re: Scaling with a mousepress.

The main issue is that you define the love.mousepressed callback inside the love.update callback.
Care to explain why? What I've seen from other examples shows the the love.mousepressed inside the update function. Doesn't this make sure that the key press is checked every second?

Re: Scaling with a mousepress.

lol....ok I guess I jumped the gun a little. After some more poking around I found a solution to my problem, and i figured I'd share. I replaced the love.mousepressed with love.mouse.isDown and had the incremental value added not multiplied. function love.update(dt) x, y = 400 , 300 if love.keyboard...
