Re: Is it worth it to make a built in tile editor?

Yeah, I remember thinking that magic tile sort of approach might be a lot easier now that you mention it. Maybe I'm looking for an excuse to make some sort of little editor :p I happen to be implementing this four-way split feature, too. Oh cool! I'm actually thinking along the lines of making a com...

Re: Is it worth it to make a built in tile editor?

I think this is an example of when a custom editor would be applicable, I made a (really bare bones) test of cutting each tile into 4 corners and choosing which ones to use based on their neighbors to get the right transitions. I think Tiled might actually do something similar for terrain, but I don...

Re: Is it worth it to make a built in tile editor?

@MrFariator Wow, that is quite an impressive level editor! I can see why that'd take up more time than the game itself, designing UI components and editing tools to that extent. @Jasoco That's basically what I'm thinking, that it would be more flexible and be cool to make even if it's not as good as...

Is it worth it to make a built in tile editor?

With things like Tiled that look like quite nice editors, is it considered bad practice to make your own built in editor? I'm trying to put together a platformer base/engine type thing for some of my game ideas and I've been trying to keep everything organized instead of quickly hacking things toget...

Re: love2d -developing on android - what code editor to use?

Quickedit is fairly nice for editing Lua, and FX and X-plore are decent file managers that fill in each other's weaknesses pretty well. Making a Love Android ide would be a good way to learn Android app dev, hmm maybe someday.... Though, coding on the phone is incredibly annoying, so I never really ...

Re: Lovely Physics Sandbox

OMG this is so cool, like a love version of phun/algodoo, which I used to like a lot as a kid! I haven't really tested it a lot but it seems very fast too, and has a really good ui!

Re: Conway's game of life (with bloom and stuff)

This is very cool! I really like the glowing tiled look and the subtle animations! I think something that would be neat is if the canvas edges looped back around, so if you can have things pass through one edge to another.

A project I started that is an extension of a simple pong game I hacked together to start learning love, and I kept adding more and more in more thought out ways. Pretty fun way to practice lua and love more! Basically it's a pack of small games all trying to make the most of a super small 64x48 res...
