Re: Automated tile map creation?

If you want it written to .lua files, you can do that too with love.filesystem.write. .lua-files written that way can be required. Hmm that might be incredibly useful, Instead of rendering a 2000 by 1000 map, I could do it in 'chunks' of 20x20 randomly generated tiles, patched together to make the ...

Automated tile map creation?

Hey everyone, it's me again :emo: So, I've managed to successfully make the random map generator, which makes variables ma[1-21]-mt[1-21] so I've got a 21w 20h map. That's all presented on screen using love.draw, which is all fine - That's automated and the least of my worries. My worry is this: map...

Re: about drawing images

Hmm I've never encountered this PO2 Syndrome, possibly because I always use numbers that are powers of two instinctively, seems to make more sense to me... that a bad thing? Also, does this PO2S affect only LOVE/Lua or is it applicable to other things such as C+ e.c.t.? It's interesting to say the l...

Re: Surely there's a better way of storing my random variabl

So if I had 5 variables, rather than the three ...
