For some odd reason, luafft now returns me an error, bragging about some debugging function not existing, when in fact it does.

With that error, the game splashcreen just stalls. I can hover at the button, but clicking it does nothing.

Actually, looking at the source code of both lovedebug and luafft i found the problem...

You guys use a variable named "msg" whilst luafft uses it as a "function"

What should i do? I really didn't plan on messing around with the source code of none of the external libs i used. I don't even know if i'm allowed to do so.
you are. thats what licenses are for.

Code: Select all

print( type(love) )
if false then
  baby:hurt(me)
end

Allright, managed to get everything working. Using this in addiction to some debug helper stuff i made really looks neat now. Awesome!

Actually, that's a great example of what kind of problems arise when you don't define your variables and functions as local.

Looking at the code, it looks like an oversight in this case. Using strict.lua or static analysis can catch these problems.

Hi. Awesome work on this, it's really great!
Tho... I'm having a problem with the background color on my game. no matter what I set it to be, it gets replaced by 0,0,0 by LoveDebug. How can I change this?

I'll try to fix this once I get home, it should be an easy fix.

EDIT: Fixed, just redownload the latest version from the first post and everything should be fine :)
There was a line in love.run that cleared the background color to the current background color in 0.9.2 but this was changed to clear to transparent black (0, 0, 0, 0) if no arguments are provided in LÖVE 0.10.0.

Hey, thank you for answering, that was fast!
So, the background color isn't changing now.
I'm not sure if I'm doing anything wrong but the overlay isn't being drawn anymore.
EDIT:
Nevermind, I got it, just needed to uncomment line 806/807. Thanks again!

Was the comment thing fixed or do I need to do it if I just downloaded the latest unofficial version?

The commented lines were uncommented on the latest unofficial version, 1.4.4 by beuz, just download it from the first page or from github.
