Re: itchy - A simple version checker for games published on itch.io

Just released version 3.0.0:

- Rewritten to be used like a normal module instead of requiring you to start a thread and listen to a channel yourself.
- Added HTTPS support using libcurl and luajit-request.
- Uses Itch.io's new API endpoint, super up-to-date!

Detecting if a file is running in the main thread, or a different thread

I'm working on an update to my version checking library which will make using it more like a standard module by requiring it and calling functions on the returned table (instead of its current behavior, which is to be loaded into a thread and called, then check a channel for its result). I would lik...

Re: Making a love EXE download a DLL and then use it without restarting?

That's a good point I didn't consider, I will make sure I use the save directory if attempting to download next to the exe does not work. My main concern with it not working is if I attempt to require it first, then download it, I hope there isn't some cache that would interfere saying nah I already...

Making a love EXE download a DLL and then use it without restarting?

I will be doing some testing later anyhow, but I figured I'd ask real quick in case someone else has tried it. Is it possible to download a DLL file to the same directory as a fused Love game and then use it without restarting the game? I would imagine so, but I don't know the internals of such thin...

Re: Setting up PS4 controller for Love

As ReFreezed said, a PS4 controller should just function as a generic controller. I admit not having tried it myself with love just yet, but I should look into it. For a quick solution (if you are just using it personally), install DS4Windows. :P It sets up a PS4 controller like it was an xbox contr...

Re: How do 3D?

So a lot of what I have to do to get it to work is hands-on in-depth, not very much abstraction or simplification provided by Love?

Because I don't know how to do ANY of that. o.o

Re: How do 3D?

I saw that thread, but didn't glean much from it. I can look for the demos posted there and examine source, but I was hoping there was a resource that attempted to explain things without me having to reverse engineer code.

Re: Love2D Game Library (1.1 Is Here)

love.conf has an option to specify version of love to use with a game, you can parse for that. Also, for convienance of handling multiple versions of love, I'd say to check out scoop.sh. It's a system for PowerShell to handle easy installation of a lot of things and I've gotten love into their extra...
