Re: Staying focused is hard.

Staying focussed is hard for me too. And I'am 17 years older than you :). But in time I figured out what helps me while coding. 1. Stop writing code and write comments/text I usually maintain alot of small text files around my repositories. There are also more sophisticated ways of doing this (wikis...

Re: Tips to be aware of game performance?

Rob Pike compiled an very smart and general set of rules about this topic: http://users.ece.utexas.edu/~adnan/pike.html Rob Pike's 5 Rules of Programming Rule 1. You can't tell where a program is going to spend its time. Bottlenecks occur in surprising places, so don't try to second guess and put in...

Re: Tips to be aware of game performance?

When I started programming I also asked this question at some point. The most common answer is the one you allready got: "Don't worry about it until it happens and then tweak your program."

This community is rather small, but smart, warm and helpful even to the clumsiest noobies, so It was very easy for me to dive in and fall in love with programming.

Re: Love2D WebPlayer (WebGL)

How could someone lose money due to a browser? It sent an order twice or something like that? I had to spend several days working around its quirks.

Re: Love2D WebPlayer (WebGL)

sounds very reasonable thx for your answer. could you also argue for this being faster, because it uses the gfxcard as a resource? Or is it mainly for convenience/compatibility?
