Re: No Motivation...

You might find some solace in knowing that others have been in the same place as you were. They even have a name for it: The idea fairy. Yes yes yes this is the SOLE reason why I have never finished ANY of my projects. It's such a pain. :P It's especially bad when you're trying to work on ideas for...

Re: Breakout: Accurately reproduce paddle physics?

Sorry, wrote this post while I was half asleep last night so didn't explain very well what I mean! By "effect of the paddle", I mean to say how it actually deflects the ball back towards the brick. How it hits the paddle determines how it's reflected back towards the bricks. I did a bit mo...

Breakout: Accurately reproduce paddle physics?

Alright, so for my first official LOVE game, I want to make a version of Breakout that also integrates Pong in some manner. I have done some Googling on the theory of the paddle physics (angle in = angle out), but I can't seem to find a solid formula for accurately affecting the behavior of the ball...

Re: Staying focused is hard.

I have ALWAYS struggled with staying focused. I don't have ADD or anything like that, but I have always had trouble staying through to the end of a project. Whether it's something like finishing a program, working on a video, or even something as simple as wanting to make a personal birthday card fo...

You don't need to for this Easter egg, it will just start playing right after you hit B and A.

Re: A theme song for LOVE?

I do know the Konami code. :P

I wonder if we could write a LOVE2D theme song. I've never been particularly good at writing music, but you never know what could happen. :megagrin:

A theme song for LOVE?

So I was browsing around YouTube, listening to some of my favorite songs, and I came across a song used in a recent film that I think would work perfectly as LOVE2D's theme song. Bryan Ferry - Slave to Love 9kp3N3wQPO0 Of course I'm mostly joking, but being the punster that I am I had to share this ...

Re: Has anyone tried out Godot game engine?

I had first heard of Godot about a year ago. Nothing much has changed about it since then. I feel there is such a flood of game engines these past few years - Unity, Unreal, Torque3D, Cry Engine, Atomic, Godot, and I know there's several that I'm missing. Anyway, I was never impressed with how Godot...

Re: LOVE users map

Ah, it would seem that in my previous post I neglected to mention that the place I linked to is, in fact, not my actual location. I am in fact located roughly 37-42ish miles south of Madison, Wisconsin, USA, just above a small little town which everybody mispronounces when attempting to speak its na...
