Re: Core Love functions as pointers

So when I said "making pointers to functions" I understood that saying function foo() end was equivalent to saying foo = function() end This was actually what gave me this idea. I was thinking that "foo" is working as a pointer to the function it is created with, and saying "bar = foo" would make "b...

Core Love functions as pointers

Something I realized is that since Lua supports making pointers to functions, you could change the function that things like love.mousepressed, love.update, love.draw etc. are referring to. Normally people will just define them with the standard "function love.update(dt) ... end". But what if instea...

Re: love.event purpose/use

Actually, I'm with Garen. Irk! I've been using this for years before League of Legends! It's "Garan", not "Garen" (although the difference in pronunciation is almost indetectible) Anyway, thank you Inny for linking to that, it will make my turn based game a lot easier to make, what with the differe...

love.event purpose/use

What exactly does love.event do? I noticed it's used in love.run, but is also able to be called outside of it. Why?

Re: Using Love's engine in different way

I am trying to make something turn-based. I figured that it would be much easier if I could control when I refresh the screen (this would also make things like menus easier to display). Also, can I alter love.draw to be able to be overloaded (or at least be called with another parameter)?

Hebrew/עברית "ברוך הבא ל" "הגרסה היא " "אתה תוקף ב " "אסור לתוף ביצירה שלך" (is this creature as in unit, monster, soldier or creation?

Using Love's engine in different way

I've grown extremely appreciative of the graphics library that Love has. I was wondering if it were possible to use the engine with just the graphics library (and then just be able to call a graphics update when I need it without overcomplicated program flow). I feel rather limited by how it's struc...

Re: Drawing Smooth Curves

I don't know if this works, but you could have an image of the curve you want to draw and then morph the image to suit your need (by increasing/decreasing the height/width of it).

Re: Anim8: Vote your preferred flip method syntax

Hey cool, my question is getting new stuff added! Anyway: I think of the choices a4 is the best, as it can easily just inserted into movement commands and the like. However, I was thinking something that might be a good idea would be a setDirection (or setXDirection and setYDirection) instead of a f...
