Re: Do android device users need to install love2d in their phone before playing a game made with love2d ?

The apk you can create can be installed directly onto a device or put onto an app store like Google's or FDroid. For testing purposes its probably easier to use the .love files and use the LÖVE for Android (Beta) app https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... 2d.android.

Re: Why is my box2d body lopsided?

That may be my lack of understanding of how best to use box2d

Re: Why is my box2d body lopsided?

Thanks for the help I've 'solved' it by turning off collisions between the weapons and the main body by changing the world:addJoint('WeldJoint', shipWeapon1, shipBody, x, y, true) world:addJoint('WeldJoint', shipWeapon2, shipBody, x, y, true) lines to world:addJoint('WeldJoint', shipWeapon1, shipBod...

Why is my box2d body lopsided?

I'm using a number of libraries which may complicate the issue a bit, but essentially I've noticed that applying thrust in the direction of my Body results in it turning anticlockwise. Even if I disable gravity this occurs, and although it happens less at low gravity and at high angular damping, it ...

Re: Collision by color

If you want to get collisions from premade image files rather than whatever is on the screen you can make the images, then load them and then query over the entire image using https://love2d.org/wiki/ImageData:getPixel in two for loops going through the x and y to decode them into a 1 pixel sized gr...

Re: Making fixed time steps not jerky

I had indeed read that article and I was still stuck. As I'm using the physics engine I'm very cautious to decrease the time step as fps is already starting to be a concern to me. Eventually I decided that I don't really need to slow down the game via the time step, I just need to slow down enemies ...

Re: New here but probably a stupid question

that code is equivalent to

Code: Select all

player = {
  x = 0, 
  y = 0, 
  speed = 100
}
assuming you mean to be using

Code: Select all

player
as you haven't defined a table called

Code: Select all

Player
Edit: Managed to merge the two correct table construction syntaxes into one incorrect version as has now been pointed out

Making fixed time steps not jerky

My game has very significant bullet time style slow downs and uses love.physics for the physics engine. Initially I opted for a variable time step to let me have easy delta time changes but this caused far too many problems with the physics engine behaving differently so I opted for a fixed time ste...

Re: Unable to compare two tables using metatables.

For your particular scenario you can actually go even further with memoization

https://www.lua.org/pil/17.1.html

If you have a color factory that remembers the previous color/tables and returns them when asked for the same ones then you can compare colors using == with no meta tables.

Re: Smart AI under gravity

I'm not quite sure I follow sherpal. The enemies in the game control the force they apply to themselves each frame - speed has no explicit limits as such, the only restraint to stop insane speeds is some linear damping applied each frame. The gravity is indeed a constant. I'm not sure what you mean ...
