Getting it into 'vanilla' love.

Post by bartbes » Mon Mar 21, 2011 7:05 pm

As some of you may know, though nLÖVE can do great on its own, it doesn't hurt being in the 'real' love. Combine that with a desire to make love more modularized, and have alternative modules, and it's easy to see how the merge was born.

I'll be adding to the topic as we go (if I remember to update it..), so let's just start.

To clear things up, this will render nlöve obsolete?

It will become an official part of love. But this will take some time, and quite heavy modifications of the current build system.

Oh, and while we're at it: would it be possible to make the name of the target executable easily changeable? I've tried building it to the name selove, but it seems it requires several non-trivial changes to the build script, which I'm not comfortable with for a few reasons.

Yes, but that's ugly.

Hold up. Does this mean getting rid of hardware-accelerated graphics? Surely not.

No, the SDL graphics module will be an option for platforms that doesn't support the OpenGL graphics module.

Any chance that there will be any OpenGL ES supported module? :)
