Suppose the player wants to load one image as his player sprite, is it possible to open it with the android file manager? And how would I do that?

It's not possible. You have to use Android API which interacts with LOVE code and pass the file streams over.

The bolded part is important. You're not allowed to pass file paths since Android 7.
Profile. I don't always online in forum, so Discord is preferred. Am I LÖVE for Android dev or not? Only you can tell.
