love.physics.newRopeJoint

Available since LÖVE 0.8.0
This function is not supported in earlier versions.

Creates a joint between two bodies. Its only function is enforcing a max distance between these bodies.

O.png There is a bug in version 0.8.0 where the cooridnates of the anchors are divided by the number from love.physics.getMeter. As a workaround, multiply your anchor coordinates with that number and it should work like expected.
