Re: How to save and reload a very large amount of data?

I'm looking into this, but I'm quite busy at the moment, so it might take a few days or longer before I get around to fixing this issue. There might be some inherent limitation we're running into, in which case I'll update the documentation.

Re: How do i wait until a certain condiction is given?

Easy way: That will do something after 10 frames, and then once every frame. To make it go after 10 seconds, add dt instead of 1. To stop it from activating every frame after that, have a boolean flag that stops that from happening: timeWaited = 0 timeToWait = 10 timerActive = true function love.up...

Re: bitser: faster, harder, better serialization with LuaJIT

For static ImageData, you would use register(), yes.

If you're, say, writing a paint clone, or anything else where ImageData are created and manipulated at runtime, you would need to massage the data manually.

Re: Sending nested tables over channels

If I may do some shameless self-promotion, you can use bitser to send data over channels. Bitser is both flexible and really fast.

I mean, you can, but suing is an expensive and time-consuming process. And even if you win, which isn't guaranteed, you still might not get much out of it. Plus if they're not in the same country as you, I don't even know if that would work.

Re: Source code license?

This might be a bit blunt (sorry for that) but: 1. That probably won't happen. 2. You can't really do anything about it anyway. Anyone who makes a thing and puts it out in the world risks something like that, and the only thing you can do to is never release anything, which isn't a great alternative...

Re: "Questions that don't deserve their own thread" thread

Also, don't call love.math.setRandomSeed, it only needs to happen once and LÖVE already does it for you. You only need to set the seed if you want to do something like minecraft, where you can enter the seed to get a specific world.
