Code: Select all

table1 = {field1 = 2, field2 = 1}

I've released a couple games but the most downloads I've ever gotten is 70. Any tips are helpful but I'm...

Re: What code editor do you use ?

My favorite text editor is Atom. It's open source, it is extremely customizable and can do pretty much everything that Sublime can.

Re: Power Pong (Updated)

Hey guys!

Fixed a couple of things in this update.

Any other recommendations and/or criticism would be greatly appreciated.
