Love2D Unofficial Support and Community Discord / Live Chat

Post by Mapyo » Wed Feb 01, 2017 5:06 am

Recently I set up a new Discord channel for newbies, experts and other cool goats alike to help each other out making some of the coolest 2D games.

If you don't know what Discord is, let me quickly explain it to you. Discord is a very simple and user-friendly made for large communities voice and text chatting platform with many different useful features such as "Code Blocks". Image

I want to create a place where you can get help solving your problems extremely quickly, a place where you can spread ideas with other developers or a place where you can drop a poorly timed meme.

If this seems like something your interested in take a peek. (We don't bite... :vamp: )

Good initiative. We've also started a server with the LÖVE community a year ago, in case you'd like to join. http://discord.me/gamedev

What's wrong with IRC? I mean besides being free and open source and not running on ads.

Also your link is invalid for some reason.

Also, fragmenting discussions is never a good idea for various reasons. I mean, i'm in the irc channel, Ulydev's linked discord and i'm also in a telegram group related to löve... that's three windows i'm juggling, and honestly, not everyone has N screens where N > 1. (And it's still hard to keep track of everything)

If it's okay, I would like to suggest that someone consolidates ALL IRCs, Discords, and the like, as a list in one thread.
Currently looking around and the only easily obvious find is the IRC which is in the main LOVE2D website.

This way, if someone wants to join the IRC(and completely missed it at the main page), he/she can find the thread in the forums and we can just redirect them either to the main page or to the IRC itself.
If someone wants to join the Discord, then it's the same process.

I dunno, that's just me though.

Game Dev League has a #love2d channel and seems to be extremely active (daily activity at least)
https://discordapp.com/invite/0TYNJfCU4De7YIk8
lg.newImage("cat.png") -- made possible by lg = love.graphics
-- Don't force fullscreen (it frustrates those who want to try your game real quick) -- Develop for 1280x720 (so people can make HD videos)
