Re: Korean Chess

Still I want to thank you for enlightening me into a game I've never heard of, and which would still be unknown to me if it weren't for your efforts. :) Thank you for the comments! I haven't checked this one because "life". But just to clarify something: The "You lose your right to win" isn't reall...

Re: Single-page introduction to LÖVE

I don't know about anyone else, but the Homepage already gave me enough boost to find out more about this engine. I don't really want to add to it. Making the "Get Started" and "Sample Tutorials" not on the same page is good, too.

Re: I Need Lua Metatable Tutorials for NOOBs

Re: I Need Lua Metatable Tutorials for NOOBs

I need something like ScriptGuilder's tutorial. That video got me started as to knowing what a metatable is. It's just too bad that he seems to be on a hiatus.

I Need Lua Metatable Tutorials for NOOBs

This question is mostly directed to Sir_Silver since he seems to use it a lot.

I want to harness the power of Lua Metatables, but I'm having a problem with the learning curve. Any links to good tutorials out there?

Re: Question about changing sprites

Nothing really wrong since it works for you. The only significant disadvantage I can say is that you'll have to do a lot of re-writing if ever you plan on adding and/or removing states.
