Re: Why does file dropped provide the full file path

The full path – and even the partial path – of dropped files isn't usable with love's APIs, it's mainly there for reference/display purposes. You can, however, read the contents of the file into a FileData (using File:read), and then load that into an Image via love.graphics.newImage(filedata). For ...

Re: The Filesystem - A Rant

I plan to expand the filesystem API to accommodate more situations in LÖVE 12. However, it is not simply a decision. There's not a line or few of code I can delete to make everything work as you want. The reason why it works like it does right now is not only to protect end users from LÖVE game deve...

Re: Updated Requirements for New macOS Applications on Steam

Before distribution? Good question. I don't have any practical experience with notarization right now so I don't know for sure - on the one hand, notarization means uploading the whole app for Apple to check, which might mean it includes a hash based on the total contents of the .app. On the other h...

Re: Updated Requirements for New macOS Applications on Steam

love has been purely 64 bit on macOS for many years now. You must do the notarization yourself - otherwise every love game in existence would stop working on macOS for all time if one single love game contained malware (and I'm not sure it's even possible to run an app which had a .love put into its...

Re: Why don't use Lua 5.3?

LÖVE uses LuaJIT, which is based on Lua 5.1. LuaJIT's main benefits over regular Lua versions are performance (it's 1.5-150x as fast as stock Lua) and its ability to use C data structures and call C functions directly, via its FFI.

Re: is it necessary to "free" texture data / love.graphics.Image ?

If that situation happens in code like the above where the lifetime of the texture is obvious, Object:release (new in LÖVE 11.0) is probably a better solution – it'll perform better, at least.

Re: LÖVE 11.2 released!

Android has always been handled by someone who isn't me. Right now we're in the middle of transitioning some of the Android release process from one person to another person. The Android repository has also been getting a lot of updates in the past couple months: https://github.com/love2d/love-andro...
