It has been renamed from SpriteBatch:lock.
Removed in LÖVE 0.10.0
It happens automatically since version 0.9.2. Use SpriteBatch:flush if absolutely necessary.


Binds the SpriteBatch to memory for more efficient updating.

Binding a SpriteBatch before updating its content can improve the performance as it doesn't push each update to the graphics card separately. Don't forget to unbind the SpriteBatch or the updates won't show up.
