Re: Love2d on a Raspberry Pi and Adafruit TFT2.8 screen

The latest Raspbian includes software GLX emulation under X. All you need to do is install love from the included software installer, and open a term and type "love" and you will get a non-accelerated "Game Over" screen running in X. The debian repositories are not tracking love2d updates at all, so...

Re: Love2d on a Raspberry Pi and Adafruit TFT2.8 screen

Do you know if any OpenGL software works on the TFT? You could test this by trying GlGears to see how that goes. Aside from that, the problem probably is in SDL2. Pulse is the sound library, so you might need to install that manually. I am assuming that you only expect software emulation of OpenGL. ...

Re: Help me understand love.math.noise usage properly...

The noise function is very interesting once you understand what it is doing. The best explanation I came across was to create a random value at regular intervals 0, 1, 2, 3 ... and then draw a smooth curve through them. The value at any point of the curve is then given by noise(x). Extend this to 2,...

Raspberry Pi 3 OpenGL support

The openGL drivers in Raspbian have made a lot of progress, where now you can select a KMS mode driver which seems to be performing well. It isn't as fast as an i5, but it feels like a standard linux PC. Installation with the armhf .deb files is pretty straight forward, and clicking on a .love file ...

Re: SuperToast, RaspberryPi 2 and Raspbian Jessie

Hi Radnom Love 0.9.1 can actually be installed from the built in software management tool (debian is still only up to 0.9.1). You are advised to install this version first and prove you get the "No Game" screen. Also, check for messages about the audio library as you may need to activate the library...

Re: Some Basic OpenGL Questions

Cubemaps and 3D textures only have niche uses for 2D games Does that mean you can have a skybox as a backdrop? Can the proposed cubemap feature be used to render a spherical surface to a canvas? Those two features would be good. You could do some quite nice space simulations without really stepping ...

Re: Lua serial [SOLVED]

I haven't tried on windows, but lua-periphery.Serial seems to work very well. It is on luarocks and easy to install. In fact, it installs on Raspberry Pi without any dramas and I was able to talk to a serial device connected to a RPi via VNC using my linux machine. It's just a wrapper, but it makes ...

Re: noise function toy

Yeah - that's what i have been playing around with. I have to say its a lot easier to experiment using this lua framework. Much faster as well. Some of the texture mapping techniques end up looking quite good, but its a black art which requires a lot of experiments.

noise function toy

Here is a really simple little program that lets you explore noise space - love.math.noise(x,y). Use the arrow keys to move around in noise space which is displayed as a (nominal) 512x512 grey scale image. the implementation is actually based on the perlin noise article and has 4 noise components in...

Re: Post-0.10.0 feature wishlist

OK, I am not trying to derail love2d or waste anyone's time here - all I can do is present what I think is a reasoned and logical argument for a feature that would be an addition to the framework and help ordinary programmers deal with threads safely. Firstly, a data object as outlined is almost a s...
