Access to the directory of the game?

Haven't visited this site in awhile :) Just a question, is there such a function that I can use to read an external file (like a '.txt' file) from the directory of my game.

Re: Can we use Love2D directly within a C++ program ?

Ah ok, C is good too. Though I have another question, how can I call a lua function from C ? like call love.graphics.setColor from C, how will I be able to do it ? Edit: I tried this: ffi = require "ffi" ffi.cdef[[ #include <stdio.h> int main() { printf("Hi"); } ]] But it resulted in this error: une...

Re: Need help with random map/city generator

'attempt to call method 'getDimensions' (a nil value)'

I don't know why it always gives me that error, here's the part of my code where the error happens: wazmb.__TILE = {} local tt = wazmb.__TILE tt._TILE_SET_ = "gfx/tiles/tileset.png" tt._TILESIZE = 32 tt.TILESETW, tt.TILESETH = tt._TILE_SET_:getDimensions() I really have no idea why that happens, cou...

Re: Need help with random map/city generator
