Cooperation between LÖVE and online multiplayer game engine

Hello! I'm developing an online multiplayer game engine , where you make games on a web page using Lua. The original intent was to use it for card games only, but it was easily expanded to handle turn based games in general and even semi-realtime games like (multiplayer) Nibbler/Snake (proof of conc...

Re: Multiplayer using RakNet/Löve with Lua C API

If you won't use LÖVE in the final product, why use RakNet in the prototype? Because I can. ;) It will save time, too, of course. A good question is which functions in the network routine should be exported to Lua. I think I will do like this: 1. Make a module that works on Ubuntu, with RakNet etc ...

Re: Multiplayer using RakNet/Löve with Lua C API

Well, normally you don't. But you can build modules using the C api and require them in your game. Wouldn't that require that I start a separate Lua state from C? I can't use C functions in Lua without having a C executable running, right? Is it possible to start Löve from C? But this will likely b...

Multiplayer using RakNet/Löve with Lua C API

Hello, everybody! I'm quite new to Löve. I'm using it right know for prototyping our game project (info here: https://sites.google.com/site/anakhagame/). I will use Raknet to program the network stuff, thus I need to export functions to Lua, I think. How do I use the Lua C API with Löve? I think tha...
