Re: noob questions: does number of lines of code affect speed of a game?

As a self proclamed beginner myself, I'd say: Do some code, and read some official documentation at the time about what you are doing. Want it or not, the official docs is the best source of knowledge you could get, and there are many *Do this and not this* which your code, and you (in the long run)...

Re: How to develop for android?

You can download the Love launcher for Android from Google Play, and with it you can run .love packages (without needing to create an .apk)

Hope it helps!

Re: Playing a ingame animaton / scene

Thanks for the answer! Then would you divide the update and draw functions between "when animation is playing" and "when animation is NOT playing"? (a simple if else I mean). Something like this is what you've made me think of: function Animator:init(args) -- define sequence of animations using the ...

Hi, right now working on a turn based battle game, and I'm having troubles when I think about making a in-game animation / scene: AKA playing 1 or more than 1 animations from different entities one after the other (something like Pokemon games do: pokemon1 plays animation for attack1 and pokemon2 pl...

Re: Rationer - A resizing tool

2nyenye: sorry for offtopic :joker: Nope, by pixel perfect I mean those modes / dimensions where all your pixels are squares: 1x1 2x2 3x3 4x4 etc Do not worry. I've made my own little search and well it seems elaborate, to say the least. You will have to make sure that all your X and Y are floor(ed...

Re: AspectRatio - A resizing tool

I've added a method to the library which given a position on the window (x, y), it return the real position on game coordinates. Can be useful to make user interfaces which could make use of mouse or touch events.

Re: [SOLVED] Resizing a canvas

Hey me again. This is how it all turned out: This is a simple tool to calculate scaling and position of the canvas: local AspectRatio = { win_w = 0, win_h = 0, dig_w = 0, dig_h = 0, game_w = 0, game_h = 0, scale = 0, x = 0, y = 0 } function AspectRatio:init(win_w, win_h, dig_w, dig_h) self.win_w, se...

Re: Resizing a canvas

When you draw your canvas with love.graphics.draw(), you can give it extra arguments to scale it up (sx, sy). Oh man now I feel a little more stupid than before :awesome:.

Re: Resizing a canvas

Hi thanks for the response. I'm not aware of all the ways that Canvas can be used yet, but I personally use it to draw whatever I need to draw on screen, but scaled (if needed). Then I draw the Canvas centered leaving blank bars on the sides (or top/bottom, depending of the aspect ratio and window d...
