Re: Concerned Joe

Will there be online / LAN multiplayer in the future ? I forgot to mention, it's all local multiplayer for now. Online multiplayer is totally a possibility, but probably not soon. (Unless I can find someone to help with that because I have zero experience there and wouldn't want to push it out unle...

Re: Downloading Love.app Problems

The reason I download the game files individually, and not in a zip is mainly because: -To be able to update single files instead of the whole package (so if only a couple of code files changes, it would only take a few seconds to get the new updates) -To easily be able to access things like: startu...

Downloading Love.app Problems

The Setup The launcher of my game is a fused love.app+launcher.love file, which when opened, downloads the game files to the save directory of the launcher. It also downloads a love.app inside there so that the launcher can run the command: os.execute("cd '" .. love.filesystem.getSaveDirectory() .....

Re: Concerned Joe

My library lurker provides this functionality and can be used the exact same way on shaders as is demonstrated in that video. That is pretty cool! I have wanted to have this ever since I saw Bret Victor's demonstration , and I only did it when I saw it was possible with Monocle Although Monocle was...

Re: Concerned Joe

Quite useful but a quick question - for the issue with the character getting caught in between tiles, wouldn't it be possible to solve by extending the tile hitbox horizontally by about a pixel or two? Tried that. Still produces the same problem. (It just seems like box will eventually get stuck in...

Scaling down images?

So let's say you've got your game with big HD-sized images and assets. Now that takes up a lot of RAM. And the game freezes during loading for some people because they run out of RAM! If the images were smaller, that uses way less RAM (of course at the expense of looking worse, but that won't be not...
