Re: Panicky Commuter

Who says we don't use radians in Europe? What nonsense is this? Same. Even our school calculators required input in rad. It's actually a much more logical unit of measurement when it comes to angles since you can derive it from a circle whereas the 360 degrees are purely arbitrary and could as-well...

Re: Panicky Commuter

You just have to give it the degree in rad (multiply by 2*pi/360 if you didn't pay attention in math class). Why the hell would you convert to radians manually if you can just use math.rad? :P Didn't know about that one :neko: neither did I, but I guess you learn something new all the time. However...

Re: Panicky Commuter

Why the hell would you write your own sine function if you can just use math.sin? You just have to give it the degree in rad (multiply by 2*pi/360 if you didn't pay attention in math class).

Re: Does this game idea sound fun to you?

I don't think it would be all that fun to play since it's too focused on sound. I mean, I could see this working maybe if you have some sort of horror game where occasionally the power goes of and you actually have to rely on sound. But even then I wouldn't totally disable the visual element and ins...

Re: viewing source of a .love

You can extract it using any program that can handle zip files. 7zip for Windows, unzip for Linux and 'The Unarchiver' for Mac would be my recommendations, but any other program should do just fine. For some you might need to rename the file extension to .zip, but usually that should not be required.

Re: Keyboard "up", "down", "left", "right" keys problem?

Depending on your keyboard it might be a hardware issue since there's a limit to the simultaneous key presses of keys that are wired together on the same lanes.

Re: Wiki Requests

It pains me to post such inelegant code. Does anyone have some good code that they could put up as examples on the wiki? Imho if you want to handle Input correctly, then you should keep it more abstract, ie. handle keyboard, mouse and gamepad input in one separate class which can be accessed indepe...

Re: Require any string?

I think this sort of shortcut is limited by a single literal string. It also works with any function. Single is quite redundant, as soon as you start concatenating them it no longer is a literal string, is it? What if you assign it to a variable and then use that? IMHO this whole thing is just inco...
