Re: Box2D Note

So is this why my jumping dude was so damn difficult to fine-tune?

*EDIT* No, no it isn't. I wasn't using the physics engine in any regard (that I was aware of).

Re: Suggestion: mousemoved() callback

This breaks the "drag from the original click point" portion of the code, but purely for testing purposes see if this doesn't help:

Code: Select all

function update(dt)
   if drag.active then
      local x, y = love.mouse.getPosition()
      rect.x = x - drag.dx * dt
      rect.y = y - drag.dy * dt
   end
end

Re: Jumping Problem

Do me a favor and post the results here so I can see what you did. You don't have to use this thread, but it might be helpful in keeping it all in one spot.

Re: Suggestion: mousemoved() callback

I'm not entirely certain what your problem is? The example works perfectly for me with no noticeable lag or anything. I click the square and drag it and the cursor remains and the square is dragged around. WFM.

Re: Jumping Problem

It certainly works. I understood none of what you said, but it works. :D

Hmm. How's his left to right? Is he Road Runner or is he fairly sedate?

Does he jump off the screen? Because right now he's meant to jump a goodly portion of the screen. But not off.

Re: Jumping Problem

Just an update, as I've gotten this to do both Double Jump (if you continue holding the jump key down, he double-jumps, something I'm not entirely certain I like) and a little bit of hang-time (which helps you to find the height of the jump for maximum double-jump). Here ya go: -- Make a dude jump u...

Re: Jumping Problem

Awesome, thanks. What I wound up with: -- Make a dude jump up and land. Also allow the movement left and right. function load() dude = love.graphics.newImage("dude.png") x = 300 y = 400 speed = 100 jump = 0 end function update(dt) if love.keyboard.isDown(love.key_right) then x = x + (speed * dt) els...

Jumping Problem

Okay, so I'm trying to (very simply) make a little dude jump up and land. So far it's actually going okay. I got him to jump. But he jumps at OMG ridiculous speed versus the left and right which are far more reasonable. I know dt has to figure into this SOMEWHERE but it's escaping me where (I don't ...
