Re: Post your desktop! :o)

(but lags for some reason) Odd, I honestly believe Windows 7 is the best product Redmond has released in a long time. I'm not an M$ fan boy by any means but this truly is a great operating system - it's what Vista should have been. Fedora is an excellent distro but you are also serving yourself wel...

Re: Post your desktop! :o)

Hell yeah - free copies of Windows 7 Beta! I have some pics from it somewhere, when I say "Windows 7 House Party" read "a bunch of friends sitting around, getting drunk and playing Nintentdo Wii" :D

Re: Post your desktop! :o)

That must of been expensive, unless you got pirated versions or something. :d
Nah, I was part of the beta and threw one of the Windows 7 House Parties. Free copies of 7 Ultimate 32 & 64-bit, signed by Steve Balmer. :)

Re: Post your desktop! :o)

I was adequately impressed with the default wallpaper that came on my computer, so I kept it around . I keep my desktop very clean. You'll also notice the really weird resolution (2960 x 1050). I'm running dual monitors, one of which is a 22" 16:9 the other is a 17" 4:3. I typically keep a browser u...

Re: Lua Indenting and utilities

Not at all. Doing it manually has lots of advantages. Zed Shaw has a quote in his most recent book Learn Python the Hard Way that gets around to the same point as well. To paraphrase: Manually type the code examples in this book, don't copy in paste. By having to type the code you will "learn" the ...

Re: Love Remove Image command Request

Yep - you'll obviously have to manage the objects better than I did in that example. Also, with the insertion the second parameter is the index within the table, so the code I had above always places the data at an index of 1 (and pushes all other data up an index). table.insert(balls, 1, {x = math....

Re: love.graphics.translate, how to use?

All translate does it alter future drawing operations. Easier to explain in code: function love.draw() local x = 10 local y = 10 love.graphics.point(x, y) -- This point is drawn at 10, 10 love.graphics.translate(20, 20) love.graphics.point(x, y) -- This point is drawn at 30, 30 thanks to translation...

Re: Love Remove Image command Request

isn't that better to store the object to a variable (as an object), so that later can use object.scaleX, object.getPostX, object.RemoveMe It appears as if you are coming from a more object-oriented background, Lua (and LOVE) are lower-level than this. Below is a simple code sample that explains wha...

Re: RPG collision detection!

Ah, so map_x and map_y are actually holding the grid coordinates as defined by LOVE (rather than the indexes for the map variable) - I'd imagine some division by 64 (or whatever your tile size is) could correct this easily enough.

Vector Tutorials

This isn't Lua/LOVE specific but I thought it could help some people out. I found a really good article on Vector Fundamentals . If this isn't the place for this, by all means let me know - it just seemed as if the Wiki was very LOVE-centric and, reading many of the posts on these forums, I think so...
