### Re: Lua vs Java?

If you want to get a job as a software developer go with Java
If you're just a hobbyist programmer who wants to make games go with Lua (Love2D)

But you can also learn both!

### Re: Creating a 2.5d game

One way to do that is to scale down the image of the object when you press the up key and scale it up when you press the down key, that will give the illusion that the object moves away but in reality it's just shrinking

### Re: Code Puzzles

I just did this

Code: Select all

function swap(a, b)
a = a + b
b = a - b
a = a - b

print("Current value of a is " .. a .. "\nCurrent value of b is " .. b)
end
and worked perfectly fine

### Re: Lua String Libary Quiz

For me personally I don't have a problem learning some string functions, the thing that bothers me a lot is using Regular Expressions

### Re: Code Puzzles

Try this without using a third variable to swap the numbers

Code: Select all

local a = 10
local b = 15

swap(a,b)
--[[
Output:
Current value of a is 15
Current value of b is 10
]]

### Re: Re-load a gamestate in HUMP

I made a simple saving library for my game and it seems like it doesn't load the new highscore when I call the game:init() function
If you guys could help me find where the problem is that would be great.

Thanks.
