Hi everybody, Love2dCS is a C# Wrapper for LÖVE.
It means you can make your game with C# in the way you make game in LÖVE .

Check out it on Github.

I always forget what I did in lua code, so ... :?
However, truth be told, it means your lost support from so much libraries already exist in LÖVE as well.

It still in development, temporarily not support physics module.

------- update 2019.04.12 -------
physics module support already added. (finally..., get rid of something <_< )

Seems pretty cool! Can't imagine myself wanting to program in C# over Lua when it comes to Love2D though, I think if I was going to use C# I would be using Unity! =P

Yes, I think Unity3d is pretty choice. And, there may be a misunderstanding here, Love2dCS enable you directly call LÖVE function not through lua.

I think that was clear. When Sir_SIlver said "C# over Lua", he meant to favor one over the other.

Anyway, cool project. Although I'm a C# coder myself, I'm wary of such wrappers in general. They may introduce extra bugs, be incomplete, or not up to date. Not to mention they might affect performances (might be interesting to benchmark it). I don't mean to sound overly negative, though, it's still a nice project.

It's still a bit rough around the edges, like getting NullReferenceExceptions when calling Love.Graphics.NewImage on a file that doesn't exist, but it's cool to see love being used from another language. As I wanted to test this, I got it compiling and running on linux (with mono), so I sent you a pull request with my changes.

I kind of feel like the c library component could also be useful for bindings for other languages.

I also moved the topic to the Ports subforum. I guess it's not really a port to another device/os as such, but it seemed like a more sensible place than the Libraries and Tools subforum to me.

Thanks for your advice!
I have not yet try to build Love2dCS on Linux.
Agree with your point of view. And this posts indeed suitable for staying in Ports subforum.

Haha, I am not a native speaker of English. My English makes me misunderstood many sentences. This time I learned some language knowledge of prepositions. :D

To be fair, the way it's written could mean both.

When you calling Love.Graphics.NewImage on a file that doesn't exist it must be throw a error which is "file not exist" !
Love2dDll.CheckCAPIException will response for error check. :awesome:

Awesome, I'm going to try it out! :awesome:
Will it possible to reference external Love2D libraries?
