Re: A Platformer With Love!

Not bad, but a couple of issues:

The little smileys seem to have no purpose, and enemies seem pointless since touching them kills them. What causes the little smileys to die also seems unpredictable.

Re: Making tilemaps for LOVE?

tiled uses base64 encoding which is pretty simple to decode, but the gzip compression has been abit more elusive within the lua/love world mappy on the other hand is a tad bit easier to read, but it seems much more difficult to make it mean something, due to its chunk structure and basicly nill doc...

Making tilemaps for LOVE?

Is there a way I can use a tile editing program to export a simple 2D array containing tile numbers to place in a map? It seems like every tile editor I use likes to either 64-bit encode map data or put it in an unnecessarily bloated array, containing labels all over. For example, say that tile 0 is...

Ok, let me try to understand what you're saying: Read a massive font-file for massive glyph usage (like Japanese characters or every variaton of OØÖÓ...) Make OpenGL textures of some of the glyphs, but not all Change which glyphs are textured in real-time, based on the history of usage of those gly...

Re: Which .lua Editor do you use?

Notepad++. I picked it because it was the first thing that came to mind when I wanted syntax highlighting.

Re: How Did You Find (true) LÖVE?

Google. This was the second thing that came up when I searched "2D Game Engine."
