Re: A Community-Culture Problem With Library Names

Somewhat earlier there was a question of data. Namely, what evidence is there that sexual library names affect participation and adoption? People who otherwise may have evangelized löve include: parents, educators, professionals, religious Christians / Jews / Muslims, even siblings and children. All...

Re: Mouse Hovering Over Printed Text

I'll elaborate on zero-one-infinity, because it's widely applicable and very helpful. I'll focus on Cosmos, even though it's not yet large enough for serious concern. The code managing your menu system is spread throughout the main.lua, which means changes must be kept in sync across disparate code ...

Re: Mouse Hovering Over Printed Text

Reseting your button state each update will fix the current trouble, like so if gamestate == 'menu' then newgamebtn = "" loadgamebtn = "" optionsbtn = "" creditsbtn = "" exitbtn = "" ... This is still a bit of a mess though. The main remaining problems: ignoring the 0 1 ∞ rule, (likely) unexpected g...

Re: Mouse Hovering Over Printed Text

What I am trying to do is make an 'invisible box' around it, and when you hover over that the text (which is normally white) turns grey. The abundance of 'and's just make the code a bit hard to read, but they are not necessarily wrong. The immediate problem is that you're never setting your graphic...

Re: draw order with goature's entity system

While I don't know anything about goature's tutorial / entity system, here is a working(ish) answer. Just add this to the end of objs:update table.sort(objs.objects, function(a,b) return a.y < b.y end) You may also want to iterate over objs.objects in objs:draw using ipairs instead of pairs. See: ht...

Hi!
So, do you want a bunny, or a human-bunny hybrid? (bunnies don't usually crawl on their knees)
Anyway, I'm glad you got the issue resolved. Oh, also, love the avatar :)

Re: Help - Keep an image rotating

Draw origin is, by default, the top left corner, which is confusing, and almost never what you want. When drawing an image (or anything), your origin offset is relative to that initial top left corner position. For an asteroid, which would usually rotate from its center, you likely want an offset of...

Re: And now for something completely different....

Very cool. Still, I feel like you, the main character, should have some kind of inner monologue about input from senses other than vision. Texture, smell, elevation changes, etc.

Re: Wind Sway - a modest demo

This is really cool. It feels very "windy"! Nice weather effects. I was only able to get the wind to -9, not in the other direction, because the / doesn't seem to work on my German keyboard. Maybe change it to + for future demos? Thanks! Regarding the wind changing keys, they are - (minus) and = (e...
