Re: Simple, lightweight, general purpose collision detection

O, sorry; I misunderstood the use of bottleneck. yes, It probably wouldn't change performance very much unless your doing a lot of operations with vectors as in this case.

Re: Simple, lightweight, general purpose collision detection

I was actually aware of the reason for doing it. it's a bottle neck for most languages, allocation. and it *should* actually be more efficient in every case. because creation time, and access time are so much lower. there is no access time so check mate there; creation time is MUCH faster becuase al...

Re: Simple, lightweight, general purpose collision detection

how does vecto-light.lua work?

edit:
never-mind; I looked at the source. have there been any issues using light vectors with other functions given that your just passing around groups of variables?

Re: SuperSprite - Draw and Animate Pixel-Styled Sprites

Re: bump.lua - minimal collision detection lib

The parentheses are merely for grouping, it's just a limitation of the parser. That said, everything is treated the same, (table):method() works too, and the colon syntax works for every kind of variable. Now, what you are mistaken not being able to use it for, is not being able to set a metatable....

Re: bump.lua - minimal collision detection lib

kikito: it's fixed :) I've always disliked how Lua handles that bit of syntax. variables, table constructors, strings, numbers, nil, true, false, etc... should all be treated the same by the parser but alas, Lua decided to give a bit of special syntax to variables and () :/ also the speceil function...

Re: bump.lua - minimal collision detection lib
