Re: professional results?

I may be biased, but I don't think there's any reason it couldn't be used - LÖVE doesn't have any real gaping holes in its functionality that I can think of. The one possible issue is performance - there's a penalty, albeit not a large one, associated both with using an interpreted language (though ...

Re: Alternative tile implementation

2009? Are you sure it doesn't just support power-of-2 framebuffers? I know some graphics cards can handle framebuffers with PO2 dimensions but otherwise fail.

Re: 32 lines of goodness, yet another OO lib

Also, RE: Java: the core language may not be too slow, but many of the standard library things (Swing, anyone?) certainly are. And you have to take those in consideration, because Java is nothing without its stdlib. Yes and no - Swing may be part of the standard library, but Java sees much of its u...

Not actually true! Twitter was Ruby on Rails for a while, but eventually the engineering team determined that it was too slow, and shifted over to a custom Java server instead.

Re: What is a triangle "mode"?

It's DrawMode, which describes whether the triangle (or any other shape, as it's used in rectangle and circle and polygon and the rest) is drawn as an outline or as a filled shape. Your choices are "fill" or "line".

The wiki has all these modes available for your perusal!

Re: Strange Performance Issues

Well, the fact that text rendering is awful and slow in 0.7.2 doesn't really help matters there.

Re: Lua missions (AKA Lua Koans) - Learn Lua while programmi

Looks neat! Though I think you missed swapping a few instances of Ruby to Lua in the readme:

Re: Extremely Strange Lock Up on Mac

It would appear that way, if that's really all the Console is printing from LÖVE.

Also, I can't get Launcher to freeze like you describe. At all.

Re: Extremely Strange Lock Up on Mac

FSAA is full-screen antialiasing. It makes things look nicer, but not all graphics cards support it to the same degree. As for the error messages, I'm pretty confident they're unrelated to your lockup. They have to do with the way SDL handles threads on Macs (read: improperly), and will likely appea...

Re: Extremely Strange Lock Up on Mac

Hm. Okay.

The weird thing is I've seen those messages before, they happen sometimes (my guess is it's a problem with SDL, though I don't know for sure), but they don't usually herald a freeze.

Can you post your .love?
