Re: Do i need to learn lua before learning löve? Or can I learn it both at the same time?

You can learn both at the same time. Love2d "just" adds extra functionality to Lua. So you can start small, learn Lua basics and use a bit of that functionality, and then continue to learn more. Worked for me, but I had experiences with other programming languages, so Lua was not totally foreign to ...

Re: Tiny Places

Probably too early, given that the game has no items to pick up and use yet - but I felt inspired to make a inventory UI screen. It will be needed anyways. Right now I think I should keep things simple and 5 inventory slots will be fine. Must see if that assumption holds. Adding two more is easy wit...

Re: Tiny Places

Took a while to get back to coding, but the projectiles now actually can hit something. And my explosion animations from last summer finally came to use in one of my projects. hEHjPvNfN_0 Everything has one hitpoint, except the player who is immortal for the moment. The player has a sort of spectre ...

Re: Tiny Places

Not much new to report, I've been very busy with other things. But I managed to import some of my wall graphics and create a sort of ruined house on this one map.

Re: Need help, want to make explosion sounds

Well, the point is to learn how this is done and then do it on my own. While it is insightful to read how professionals work here, I think I'll need to take a step back and find something that I can safely do at home. Actually I had some success with synthesis, using noise, envelopes and frequency f...

Re: Removing item from table while iterating

A solution that I used in Java (which does not allow modification of a collection during iteration) was to add the expired objects to a second table and then after the iteration remove the ones found in the "expired objects" table from the main table. But I must admit, I do not know if Lua needs thi...

Re: Tiny Places

Another small step completed. Players now start in a lobby area and can now move from one map to another. This still has to be tested in the multiplayer version. Just yesterday I found and fixed a whole lot of issues that all seemed fine while there was only one player logged in to the server. Still...
