Are strings passed between threads as reference?

I have threads working and passing imagedata references - which works really well. What I want to do now is use a thread to read serial data from an external device and pass it to the main program. Since each thread is like a new lua instance, I wonder if strings can be shared across threads, or if ...

Re: SuperToast, RaspberryPi 2 and Raspbian Jessie

Hi. I don't have a B+ at the moment, however when I get a Zero I will try to get that working. Just work through all the dependencies and try and get it compiled. The only tricky thing you may encounter is getting SDL2 working, although it should be OK as the VideoCore IV is the same. RetroPi is ava...

Re: SuperToast, RaspberryPi 2 and Raspbian Jessie

OK. I downloaded the latest and rebuilt. It now works with the ESC. Thanks for that. The new demo screen is great. It really does showcase what can be achieved on a little machine like the RPi when you get the GPU working. When I can get hold of a Pi Zero I will try and see how far you can push a $5...

SuperToast, RaspberryPi 2 and Raspbian Jessie

I managed to get the 0.10.0 built and running on a RPi 2 with the new Jessie OS. It was a bit of an ordeal, but it does work great. To be fair, the LÖVE install was not the problem - it works as advertised. The Raspbian has a few missing libraries which caused some confusion, but the real problem wa...

Installing love2d on RaspberryPi 2

For the last few days I have been trying to get a working installation of love2d on the new Raspberry Pi 2. This is the just released quad core A7 ARM PC with 1G of RAM and the Broadcom VC4 GPU. It is now working - with a few minor things I can't understand. Firstly, there are a few gotchas if you h...

Re: Compiling Love 2d

No luck with X closed down. Same error message, so I am guessing that SDL2 is not properly installed or configured.

Re: Compiling Love 2d

OK .. thanks for that bartbes. It was the libGLESv2 dev package it wanted. Now it went through and finished all the build - it took about 1 hour. When I type love in a terminal I get Error: No available video device stack traceback: [C]: at 0xb6e912c8 [C]: in function 'require' [string "boot.lua"]:3...

Re: Compiling Love 2d

I was about to post a similar question. I have just booted up the new Raspberry Pi 2 and would very much like to try out love2d. First I installed SDL2 based on this post - https://solarianprogrammer.com/2015/01/22/raspberry-pi-raspbian-getting-started-sdl-2/ I am not sure if the configuration is co...

Re: config.lua is being ignored

I have been using love2d + zerobrane with linux and I just installed it on Win7 machine and I got the same broken behavior. It turned out the problem was an old version of love installed in Program Files (x86). The latest version of love installs in Program Files - which is the 64 bit directory, I t...
