Ho to handle multiple independent animations on characters

I would try to create a character composed by multiple independent animated parts, for example like in Metal Slug: http://k36.kn3.net/C3E615D00.png if you check, in the bottom of the image you'll notice legs are independent to body, this is nice to fire with a weapon with dynamic movement. So my que...

Re: How to debug LOVE?

Thank you all, I got it. I meant especially when I pass data around classes and I need to check if this data is consistent or loss it's format for some reason, basically I have to check it with a hand made console in an overlay on the game.

How to debug LOVE?

I'm trying to find a way to debug what I code, but the compiler errors blocks my game and I cannot understand what happened exactly, I've tried lovebird with the hope to add more information but it doesn't.

Which are the common ways to debug with LOVE 2D?

Re: Keyboard Layout Problem

I've a similar problem, I'm using Italian Layout on a MacBook Air but it seems that the layout of the keyboard for LOVE is different, maybe American?

What's the difference between load and require?

I've tested a demo with a simple key press showed with a text on game window and it works in both cases:

Code: Select all

-- a file with load
love.filesystem.load("keypress.lua")()

-- a file with require
require "keypress"
what's the difference?

Sharing vars around .lua files

I would ask this question to be sure I'm not doing a best practice on how I should share a specific information around game lua files. For example, I would share the game name "Super Generic Adventure" around my code for various reasons, for example the window title, or the name of the folder with t...

Best practice to manage game config options

As I've read on [wiki]Config_Files[/wiki] wiki page that I can define all game settings inside conf.lua file. If I'm not wrong, all the config i set in conf.lua doesn't affect directly the game, because config is loaded before main.lua starts, so I suppose, the config set before is visibile to the r...

Re: Hello world text flickering on fullscreen window

Thank you, if you say that I suppose event handling is one of the first things I should read on documentation.

Now it's more clear why it's flickering!
