Re: Question about love.audio.rewind()

This thread's gotten a bit off-topic. Bringing it back: The problem I ran into at first was that this would only successfully play once every couple of seconds or so. This is a known bug with LÖVE's WAV decoding, unfortunately. The easiest way to avoid that lag is to use a different audio format (m...

I actually just finished writing exactly that helper function, but I suppose I wondered if there was a built-in function. I believe this answers my question nonetheless :] Thank you Anjo

Lua question: Is it possible to get the key from a table...

Is it possible to search a table by value and return the first key with a matching value?

Re: My first project, advice and tips welcome!

Nice. Very impressive for a first project in LÖVE. :) The explosion clouds stay on screen a bit long, though. And I exploded once but could go on afterwards, is that expected behaviour? Thank you and thank you for trying it out :) I'm actually experimenting with fading the clouds out slowly by chan...

Re: My first project, advice and tips welcome!

Good work ninwa. You posted the update right before I was about to sleep :P so I'll play it more tomorrow. Am I suppsed to be able to hold down space for INFINITE LAZ0RZ though? For now yeah, but in the future different projectiles types will have different firing rates. I've been kind of adding a ...

Re: Question about love.audio.rewind()

Not that I know what that piece of code does, but I suspect it turns off the garbage collector - which certainly wouldn't be a solution. The reason the game crashed now, I suspect, is because your sound source is being cleaned up by the garbage collector after your function has been run - before it...

Re: Question about love.audio.rewind()

My simple "for now" solution: function playSFX(file) local sfx = love.audio.newSource(file) love.audio.play(sfx) end Note: I only use this for one-off sound effects, not for the background music. Bad, bad idea! What will happen once you've played 1000 sounds? EDIT: Hmm, or maybe the garbage collect...

Re: Question about love.audio.rewind()

What am I doing wrong? Think of sources as... Well, sources. A trumpet, for example. A trumpet can only make one sound at a time. You can't have one trumpeteer (I may just have made that word up) play two notes at the same time. The same goes for sound sources. Once you've played a sound source, yo...
