Re: Yarns: LÖVE Stories

FYI, tricep doesn't mean forearm, the tricep muscle is at the back of the upper arm, behind the bicep. I always do that. Thanks for pointing that out. I'll fix it by the first release. Hmm, I wonder... Does this really count as machinima? I mean, it's a video-maker through and through... Can it get...

Re: Yarns: LÖVE Stories

I just uploaded a quick preview of the animation editor in action. Forgive the lack of annotations; I'll try to get around to them eventually. In the meantime, most of what's going on should be fairly self-explanatory to anyone who's used a keyframe editor before.

Re: Yarns: LÖVE Stories

This looks wonderful :-). Any update? Thanks! As a matter of fact, I'm elbow-deep in the set editing mode, which is currently a simple but functional tile map editor. The forum seems to be cutting off the right edge of my pictures, so here's a direct link . I might lend a hand once I'm done with my...

Re: Pattern Matching Question

Heh, never mind. I figured it out.

In case any of you ever find yourselves in a similar position, the "[$d+]" needs to be changed to "$w+". Then, assign the table index as tonumber(word).

Pattern Matching Question

Hi, guys. I have a function that needs to load a bunch of values from lines in a file. Here's what I have so far: if filepos=="tiles" then row=row+1 column=0 tilelist[row]={} for word in string.gfind(line, "[%d]+") do column=column+1 tilelist[row][column]=word end end Basically, this loads a table o...

Re: Yarns: LÖVE Stories

Hiya, folks! Just checking in to let you know that I'm still working on this. I love the character customization icons, They are so old skool Apple Macintosh! Thanks! I'm really happy that you said that. My goal from the start has been to give this a dithered, old-school pixelled feel instead of a p...

Re: Pondering Keyframe Animation

Bahah! It worked at last!

The table setup worked perfectly; it was writing an algorithm to actually read it that took a while. Now I need to plan out my animation format and write/load it and I'll have a functional but unpolished animation mode!

Re: Pondering Keyframe Animation

You're a man among men, Robin. Thanks a million.

I'm not 100% clear on how that works, but I'll look into it and get all the ins and outs... now that I know what to look for.

Re: Pondering Keyframe Animation

This is a difficult project you're doing, good luck. :) Heh, I'm getting that impression more and more clearly as I progress :? Short answer: yes. Longer answer: different types are mostly transparent to you when using Lua. You can toss tables and functions around just like you can toss strings and...

Pondering Keyframe Animation

Okay, folks. I've never programmed anything like this before, so I'd like to make sure that I'm on a sensible track before I get too many lines of useless code written. I'm trying to set up a keyframe animation system. I already have a class set up for characters that will be using this system, and ...
