Re: Build Love on PowerPC - MintPPC 9.3

Hmmm - Sorry about that, If it is neccessary, then I don't want to give bad advice....The AM_PROG_AR has something to do with automake. If it is not defined, then older versions of automake fail.

Re: Future for PowerPC Linux?

That is exactly the reason why I purged this system of all things Apple and switched to Linux :) Intel-macs are awesome - but Apple abandoned the powerpc FAST... This laptop was a month old when apple announced intel-macs... within a few months it became clear that my brand new (super expensive bank...

Yes - Setting t.identity as "BoxBreaker" also works - and is preferable to %appdata/Love% - Looking back on this error makes me realize I was being total noob! - which of course, I am...

Re: Roid Rage

Cool - I have to choose the 25 size explosion on my slow system - glad that the option is there! The new gameplay controls threw me off at first! The game is much more challenging now! I like the new control scheme overall - it is more interesting than just holding down the mouse button. Now I need ...

Re: Could not set write Directory - Only occurs with .exe

Ah - I solved it! : I changed t.identity to the following in conf.lua:

 t.identity = "'%appdata%\Love\'" 
Now it is working just fine - Thanks!

t.identity = "data"

When I run my game from the .love file, everything works fine - However, when I merge it into the ...
