Re: How can I use Canvases to create a page buffer system?

Here is a copy of my file. I saved it as a zip file so you can unzip and check out the code on notepad++ or whatever you guys use. Here is the code if you don't want to download anything and have virus paranoia (<_<) main.lua function love.load() n = 1 xn = toString(n + 1) --next n xp = toString(n -...

Re: How can I use Canvases to create a page buffer system?

I updated the code and loosely based it off your idea. Thanks man ( for clearing up the noise I had about Canvases ). I think this will work, I just need to get some pages and test this thing for real. EDIT "num" is now "page.num" in my code function love.keyreleased(key) if key == "z" and (n>0) the...

Re: How can I use Canvases to create a page buffer system?

I want to make a visual novel system so I'm not sure how many pages the user will use. wont the nil function delete the page.next variable permanently? It needs to be so that its a continouse system regardless of how many pages you want to use. But maybe the Canvases might be a bit too much, (I can ...

How can I use Canvases to create a page buffer system?

I am making a page buffer with the following code. So far I think it will work but I have a little trouble understanding how I can manipulate Canvas functions to make a smooth page buffer . How this is meant to work: >I creat a variable for a previouse page, a current page and a next page using tabl...

I've been reading up PIL, so far most of it is making much more sense now but I'm about quarter way with PIL. might take a few months to soak up everything completely ( after PIL I'll revise the Wiki properly ) then after that I will resume with my Lunar project with much gained confidence and knowl...

Re: LUNAR Lua+Narrative

I'm going to learn meta-tables and then use them because they seem to be very interesting, first I should use checkColliison to clean up my if statements and yes it is much better that way after all another reason I am doing this anyway is to learn Lua and real programming so I cant just dumb down t...

Re: LUNAR Lua+Narrative

Can I put the save and load function in love.update instead? and what are meta tables? Can I use plain variables like save_state and load_state instead of save.state and load.state. Second, it is better to define once a collision check function and then reuse it, instead of repeating ; CODE: SELECT ...

Re: LUNAR Lua+Narrative

I have a problem. It saves fine and the serialization is fine but when I try loading the game nothing happens. I suspect that it was because the data is not being put back into its place when it loads ( if that makes sense ) I have attached the project since there might be something bigger that I'm ...
