Re: Spanky Butt

Funny! Can I request a George Constanza cameo from the episode the massage?, the one where he gets confuse because it moved when a man was giving him a massage. That's a real fun idea! I'm going to add that, I'm always up for any suggestions. Right now I'm working with the Love Android package to g...

Re: Löve decides to break the game upon compiling?

I didn't get the chance to look at the code, but you should definitely let people know that this program will lock up your mouse cursor. To exit I had to alt-f4

Re: can people view the source code of .love files?

After looking through the GameJolt API you guys are right. There really isn't much value in hiding the private key. My initial understanding was that GameJolt would generate a unique signature every time you made a request, but the signature seems to stay static based on the private key. Someone cou...

Re: can people view the source code of .love files?

Hmm, instead of storing the key in lua, could you modify Love2D's source and put it in the compiled code? And then hook the function into lua and call it that way?

But... butt! Silly silly. :) I'm sure you know of Hurt Me Plenty ? https://youtu.be/wXvIBWCa0N8 Curious to see how the next version will be. I'm glad you guys got a kick out of it haha. I actually hadn't heard of Hurt Me Plenty before this! I'm thinking I'm going to go a time attack route and attem...

Re: [library] bump.lua v3.1.4 - Collision Detection

I think old zeldas (and definitively the first Marios) didn't have the luxury of breaking appart their main character into several rectangles, nor using vector math. I suspect they didn't even use rectangles, but pixels (you can do this if you have a fixed time step, like they did in MC kids ). I a...

Re: [library] bump.lua v3.1.4 - Collision Detection

Characters in some games skirt around an obstacle when trying to butt against its edge. Any ideas how to implement this behavior with bump? (don't mind the artifacts) mario_jump.gif zelda.gif There are two ways that I know of to handle this that aren't specific to bump. The first way is to break ap...

How am I supposed to canvas:clear() since 0.10.1 ? Is there a generally fast good-practice I don't know about?

Thanks!
Set the canvas, then use love.graphics:clear()

Code: Select all

love.graphics.setCanvas(canvas);
love.graphics.clear();
love.graphics.setCanvas()

Re: "Questions that don't deserve their own thread" thread

Edit: Nevermind on that one. I finally figured out a fix. :awesome: Another question, though: If I were to compare arrays of strings, would there be a more efficient way than concatenating both arrays and comparing those resulting strings? For example, if I had something like this to populate an em...

Re: gpu particle simulation

I attempted to run this on my home PC and I received an error. I don't have the message handy but it mentioned that you have an unused variable in one of your shaders. It might just be a quirk of my specific video card but I've found that externs and variables that don't an impact the final pixel th...
