Android/iOS 32 or 64 bit?

For releasing on iOS and Android, does it matter if I use the 32 or 64 bit build of LOVE?

Opinions, using Java to control the UI

My game is coming along quite nicely and I'm constantly impressed by the quality of LOVE. The only roadblock I've encountered is the UI. LoveFrames goes a long way to solving this problem, but without any layout managers I'm stuck using absolute positioning. To help with positioning I've done as muc...

Re: Can't find huge memory leak

Thank you slime! I'm glad that this is cleared up. However, I feel a little embarrassed that my huge memory leak was actually a few hundred kilobytes. Thank you Hexenhammer, master both, and Xgoff for also helping to resolve this misunderstanding.

Re: Can't find huge memory leak

Perhaps, what is happening is that hundreds of megabytes of ram are being used to hold the decompressed pngs, but only a few hundred kilobytes are being used by the Lua heap which means it is fluctuating by hundreds of kilobytes, not megabytes like I thought.

Re: Can't find huge memory leak

I'm starting to think the problem is that I've misunderstood the value returned by collectgarbage("count"). Now I think my game is only using a few hundred kilobytes not a few hundred megabytes. According to Lua 5.1 Reference "LUA_GCCOUNT: returns the current amount of memory (in Kbytes) in use by L...

Can't find huge memory leak [solved]

I'm using: collectgarbage("count")*1024 To calculate the size of the heap. If I press nothing and just watch the heap size it will increase and decrease by around 200MB regularly. I'm using lots of large image files which I suspect is causing the large memory footprint (Task Manager says the game is...

Re: Reduce animation choppiness

Nearly seizure inducing indeed. Thanks for the help. I guess there isn't anything that can be done for a poorly made sprite. It has an interesting effect on the animation, but it doesn't appear to improve the smoothness. Thanks for suggesting slowing it down to see it more clearly.

Re: Reduce animation choppiness

retrotails, that sounds like it could work, but I don't know to implement it. Can you provide a small example? or a more detailed explanation?
