Re: Interface: primitives

Another 2D primitive problem: how to set the color on each vertex in order to draw gradients? We don't need this feature right away (or ever), but the current interface should be created in such a way that this extension is possible later without breaking consistency I've done a little research in ...

Thanks rude n_n

That would be pretty cool :D

Re: Tutorial requests and ideas

Well, it took way more than expected, but I finally managed to put together my humble little tile-based scrolling tutorial. As many might already know, coding a real, efficient, complete tile engine is no trivial task, so I decided to go with the very basic idea: draw a simple tilemap and be able to...

Re: Interface: love.filesystem

For highscore tables, savegames, tilemaps, etc. Granted, it's not critical, but it can be useful. It's not like we need it right now, though :)

Re: Interface: primitives

love.graphics:shape() sounds good and I like the love.fill / love.outline idea too. I don't like and all-around line method :P

Re: Interface: love.filesystem

Two questions: Is there any way to open a file in binary mode? Include behaves like Lua's include or more like require?

And maybe this can help you with the Mac question: http://www.jmu.edu/computing/mac/filestructureOSX.shtml

Re: Future features

IMHO, basic collision detection is easy to implement on the lua side, but I'm sure a lot of people would disagree with me. I know I promised a tutorial about that, but I don't want to waste my little free time if you're going to implement it in the near future. I'm not whining about my lack of free ...

Re: Internal Architecture Improvements

First, the plugins will not be for "general dumb users". They will be developed by Love Development Team and by those, who really need some non-standard, fast functionality. Hmm, so what? About being cross-platform. I don't get it. Do you mean that if we move code from "drivers" into EXE it will so...

Re: The Emo Thread

From a user standpoint, I absolutely dislike the DLL idea, for a number of reasons: 1) Someone will have to produce .so equivalents of those libraries. That's cool if we're talking about "core" libraries, but it'll be extremely annoying not to be able to play a certain game because some custom DLL i...
