Re: Dave Gone Apeshit

Very cool :) You might want to define a MAX_TIMESTEP (i usually use around 0.1 seconds), and then in the update function of main.lua you can start with dt = math.min(dt,MAX_TIMESTEP). Right now it's possible to exploit the unlimited timestep by grabbing the title bar of the window til you get the hi...

If you're working on Windows 7, you might have this problem when trying to debug your love2d programs: 1.png Instead of displaying useful debug information, love.exe simply crashes. This is because since Windows 7, the Program Files and Program Files (x86) directories are protected and love.exe is n...

Re: Best and worst game-making habits (forum-game)

Re: 2.5D implementation

To reply to paramecij's original question, I would recommend storing the full three dimensional x-y-z coordinates of each sprite.
