Re: Need help making a save file

One of the things I love about Lua(JIT) is that I do not have to have the separation of core engine (e.g. C or C++), scripting (e.g. Lua or Python), and serialized data (e.g. XML, JSON, something custom) anymore. I used to develop in that traditional way, and it was so ugly. Translating between the ...

Re: Starting from the begining... of the principle.

You sound like someone who wants a game maker [1], not LÖVE. In LÖVE you will have to program almost everything yourself and/or integrate other people's libraries. I do not think LÖVE is a good choice if you just want to make relatively simple games. LÖVE makes more sense for people for whom program...

Re: Window size limit?!

If there is no way around the window size limit is there a way to draw to an arbitrary sized offscreen surface and somehow save said surface to a file? I ask because that's what I would do with plain SDL. [wiki]Canvas[/wiki]es. And [wiki]Canvas:getImageData[/wiki]. Thanks! Got it working in no time...

Window size limit?!

Does LÖVE (0.9.0) limit the window size to the maximal full screen resolution? Because it seems that way. I am unable to create a window with a width larger than 1920.. which happens to be the maximal full screen resolution of my system. Please tell me there is a way around this. I used LÖVE as a qu...

Re: Possession 2 - A Roguelike made in LÖVE

If I have, for example, a fast creature that can move 5 times a turn, but only attack once, what do I do when the player moves three times and then tries to attack? Good point, I did not consider how to handle such cases using a typical roguelike interface. In a RPG you simply press "end turn" if y...

Re: Possession 2 - A Roguelike made in LÖVE

I would. You should separate movement and attack/special ability speed. If you do not, speed becomes a super-powerful uberstat. The fast creature which can move 4 spaces while another can only move one can also attack 4 times while the other can only attack once - that is insanely imbalanced unless ...

Re: LÖVE is a CPU/power hog: why?

nvidia's OpenGL driver in windows seems to wait for the screen's vblank by basically doing a busy-loop until it happens, which will always use 100% CPU on that thread if it can. Other drivers do it differently. One of the links I gave provides a possible workaround for the issue. I already have wor...
