Re: Avatars: OBEY!

Just returned to the world of LÖVE, and found the perfect avatar for my profile. (Well, almost perfect. Certain magical girls would disagree.)

Re: Text typeout effect?

Wow, you guys are awesome!

(And no wonder I failed to do this, I went a completely different and overcomplicated way...)

Thank you very much! :ultraglee:

Text typeout effect?

Hello all. Is there someone around here who managed to implement delayed text typeout (or typewriter, whatewer is it supposed to be called) effect, like the system used in visual novels/RPGs? (Here's a video of a VN engine in action, check the way the text is displayed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?...

Re: Love Compiler

It's effectively the same thing as the Love2d compiler mentioned in the wiki. If you start lovec.exe, and drag a .love file on it, it will pack it into the main executable.

Re: Alternate ways to store data files

Alright, thanks everybody for your replies. After playing around with Löve for an extended time, I got used to it, and decided to leave everything as is. I read the Lua manual as well on file io, and realized that I can still encode, for example, the dialog texts in a custom binary format, if I don'...

Re: Alternate ways to store data files

Interesting then. I'm on Win7 at the moment. I play a certain game that was made with RPG Maker, and it definitely stores the save file in the same directory as the executable, and it does not require admin rights.

Re: Alternate ways to store data files

So to put it short, it doesn't worth the effort to use it with C++ at the moment. Anyway, it's nice to hear that the devs have plans to make it usable this way someday. What is left for me then is to either get used to the fact that my entire game will be written in Lua, or use Löve only as a protot...

Re: Alternate ways to store data files

I think what you are asking for and the way LOVE is designed are mutually incompatible. As far as I know, Löve is designed to be a general-purpose 2D engine. What I need is a general-purpose 2D engine. It has a pretty extensive Lua interface, but the engine itself is still coded in C++. And then it...

Re: Alternate ways to store data files

Thanks for your reply. Well, trust me, I've seen a few casual gamers who managed to open even proprietary archive formats just to figure out something they couldn't solve ingame. So it's simply not a good idea to serve the whole internal game mechanism to the player. In game that's entirely algorith...

Alternate ways to store data files

Hello all! I'm planning to develop a 2D RPG. Originally, I started to write an SDL-based engine from scratch, but then I found Löve. So I started to play with it, and I like it very much, it's an amazing 2D engine. The only thing that holds me back at the moment is that it's entirely Lua-driven. Eve...
