A console thing

Post by zeddy » Mon Jul 07, 2008 12:47 pm

Hi,

I knocked up a fairly basic console sort of thing.
You can enter lua statements and whatnot.. now you might actually use the 'Continue' button on the BSOL (blue screen of love)!

Hopefully, you'll find it useful ;]

Some pictures:

(*ahem* ignore the background)

An example and the lua script if you can't be bothered opening the .love to get Console.lua:
ConsoleTest.love
Console.lua

EDIT: Just changed/fixed a couple of things, and stuck it on google pages
EDIT 2: Updated file links

I have just a "change me I dare you" when I launch the ConsoleTest.love. What am I missing?

Hey, you can hit tilde (~) key to toggle the console. Try typing something like g_printText = "new text" to set the string that's being drawn ^^

I don't know if it's because I'm on linux or it's using an US keyboard, but it's not working. In a windows virtual machine with virtualbox, it's working though (and the keyboard is qwerty)

It looks cool anyway!

Hm It's not the key checking by any chance? Maybe try changing it to love.key_f1 or something in keypressed()
Does it just not display at all?
