Primitive "Tiled" map loader and 2D game lighting

Feel free to steal from the code, press 1, 2, or 3 to set the lighting to different brightnesses. Notice the lightsource underneath the player. Also, this map is being loaded in from a map created with Tiled. There are a few demo maps, just look in the directory and change the map name that's being ...

Re: Camera Shake? / Collisions

Ryne, the collision detection function you are using is going to return a 'true' value if the two objects are colliding, and a 'false' value if they are not. When a function returns a value you can think of it as "passing it back to the code." So let's say I had a function which was real simple, all...

FML.

Thank you Robin, good eye.

Great point .

Actually, green (one of the colors from the sprite I'm performing this on.)

[Solved] Silly love.graphics.quad question!

(Yes I know one exists already, but) I'm writing a small sprite/animation library, and naturally I'm going to run into issues on the first most trivial thing I write, that said: Main.lua require "Sprite.lua" function love.load() love.graphics.setBackgroundColor(59,185,255) -- gorgeous sky blue color...

Re: Newbie questions (re: particles, physics, audio)

So glad I happened to stumble on this, I was having problems with my audio earlier today and this fixed it up. The only problem I have with the sound manager is that it's absolutely terrible for large files (because it loads the whole file into memory and decodes it.) Using this for my background mu...

Re: Breakaround - My take on the classic 'Breakout'

Added a framework for powerups: Left click to activate them, Right click to drop them. A couple of demo powerups, they come at a high frequency but this will be tweaked eventually, it's just for testing: E is explosive (causes an explosion around the ball in a 75px radius blowing out blocks around y...

Re: Breakaround - My take on the classic 'Breakout'

This might be an Idea for the g-sensor of the Caanoo :-). The goal is to finish the game and then port it to the iPhone (I've already ported my space-scout game :) ), however I'm not sure using the accelerometer will really benefit the controls in any manner. I would probably do rotation by draggin...

Re: Collision detection using separate axis theorem,

I've used this before, I switched over to my on algorithm, which involves a lot of rotating in a relativistic fashion. I'll [eventually] make a tutorial on how to use it. :P If you wouldn't mind, I would love to profile the two methods and see which is faster. I don't do a lot of collision checks i...
