Re: T - a multi-paradigm test framework

There aren't a lot of bells and whistles yet, but it gets the job done. Here's the source , I'll add documentation and examples at some point. Hi! I realize that you did all of this free of charge and may not have had the time, but; have you released any of that documentation or those examples yet?...

Re: Status of Multiplayer Mobile Networking

It's pretty much the same as Windows networking, you've just gotta be super conscious of data usage and dealing with network drop outs. Here's a game I'm working on that is entirely network oriented that is going to be released on mobile platforms: https://love2d.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=850...

Thanks for reporting that, I just pushed a fix that exports enet as a local instead. I didn't like the global style before either. Let me know if you have other issues, I haven't done a full check since 11.0.
Oh, you are welcome. Thanks for writing the library! :)

Re: Status of Multiplayer Mobile Networking

Yep, enet and luasocket are cross platform. However, you are still going to need some sort of authentication - which is usually handled through Andoid/iOS (I don't think you can interface with these from Lua/FFI). Good point. Yes, there is much more to networking than just access to a low-level net...

Re: Status of Multiplayer Mobile Networking

On a side note, you may want to learn about threads as sending some huge data (say, upon connection of a new client which doesn't have any cache stored) will hinder any other message processing. What I did was: - connect to a server, check for content updates - if there are updates, the server answ...

Re: Status of Multiplayer Mobile Networking

I don't know any sock.lua, but if it's using enet from before 0.11 nightlies, then it might still expect enet to set a global variable (called enet) and expects it to work like that; it doesn't anymore, that was bad coding style. You can check and just edit it so it'll be a file-local instead. I th...

Re: Status of Multiplayer Mobile Networking

And again, you don't need to do anything yourself regarding Enet, it's bundled into löve, like how luasocket is. You just local enet = require 'enet' and it works. Ah. There must be something wrong with my sock.lua code then. I got an error about enet being nil, and I went down the path of thinking...

Re: Status of Multiplayer Mobile Networking

One problem you have to deal with on mobile platforms, but not so much on PC, is roaming - e. g. endpoints moving between WiFi and carrier networks, or other sudden IP address changes, are common on mobile. A good mobile user experience means you have to take this into account. True. Thanks for mak...
