Noob Question: kudoLib (LÖVE Library)

Post by nightvenom » Fri Oct 10, 2008 5:05 am

What is a library ? Do i need one to make a game ?? Whats its purpose ?

I'm a noob to every thing that is programming, so more or less lament terms are preferred :P


And also, what is a good way to start creating games, more or less a work flow, one that doesn't have me ummm getting confused and clustered :) ?

A library is a collection of objects or functions.

You'll need to include that lua file also.

In your main.lua, you would require the library file(s) in question.
Also, shouldn't this be in Support?

I figured it wasn't that big of a question just an inquiry :)
