Tutorial requests and ideas

Post by rude » Sat Feb 09, 2008 8:58 pm

Post suggestions to tutorials here. Maybe we'll eventually get our asses moving if we have a concrete to-do list. Remember that LÖVE is still in an early stage, and there's no guarantee that it can do everything (or anything).

For starters:
  • [In progress] Using input devices. (love.mouse, love.keyboard, and related callbacks)
  • [In progress] Using animations.
  • [Done] Using sound and music.
  • [Done] Using fonts and imagefonts.
  • [Done] Using Callbacks

  • Using load, update, render, etc (the callbacks).
(I am, of course, volunteering to do this)
Now posting IN STEREO (where available)

Something I could really use right now.
  • Advanced animation, Breaking the effect needed down into functions, and coordinating multiple parts in sync.

I'm not sure.. I did a basic callback tutorial: http://love.sourceforge.net/?page=tutorial&id=2, but perhaps you are going to be more specific.

There's overlap, sure, but there's also love.keyboard and love.mouse, which probably will be used more often than the actual callbacks. (When it comes to input, that is).
Advanced animation, Breaking the effect needed down into functions, and coordinating multiple parts in sync.
I did not fully understand what you needed here, so please elaborate. Meanwhile, I'll start on the non-advanced animation tutorial.

I did something similar, also adding info about most input-related methods like isDown, setVisible, etc. I don't think it's really important, most of those are pretty easy to figure out. Anyway, I'll see if I can post it here anyway, maybe you guys can use it.

Does that mean that we're not doing the input tutorial?

I guess it means I'm a douche who completely forgot about it. I'll try to upload what I have somewhere so you guys can give take a look at it.
