Re: What was the reasoning for changing setColor from RGB 0-255 to 0-1 interval?

So you built another framework :-) Or a connector. Or a bridge. Erm, smart, but thanks no thanks.

On a side note, what makes you think Wesley Werner is Alex Szpakowski?
Ah, It was just a guess based on this: https://github.com/wesleywerner/loveslime

Re: What was the reasoning for changing setColor from RGB 0-255 to 0-1 interval?

BTW, found this game which I believe has been written by slime:
https://github.com/wesleywerner/nova-pi ... tag/v0.2.3

Unable to run as it only supports 10.x and crashes.

Re: What was the reasoning for changing setColor from RGB 0-255 to 0-1 interval?

Maybe, it would be the right thing to add a conversion function (helper) for people using 0-255. I made this . It patches all relevant functions for you when you start your game and forces everything (not just the trivial functions) back to 0-255 in a transparent way, as if the change never happene...

Re: What was the reasoning for changing setColor from RGB 0-255 to 0-1 interval?

Adding a simple function to convert 0-255 to 0-1 (and potentially other color conversion functions, although there are a lot of color spaces and few are really useful for games) might be helpful, but having love's base APIs take 0-1 colors was a necessary change. I understand the goal was to standa...

Re: What was the reasoning for changing setColor from RGB 0-255 to 0-1 interval?

I have to say, I'm not a big fan of this change either. I think it is a step in the wrong direction, in the sense that it makes it harder for novices to work with colours, while one of the big selling points of LÖVE is how novice-friendly and easy it is because of how it hides many implementation d...

Re: What was the reasoning for changing setColor from RGB 0-255 to 0-1 interval?

If only Love wouldn't take years to go from 0.7 to 0.11. Good news! We've already reached 11.1. The last sub-1.0 release was 0.10.2. I don't know if that means the interface is stable now. Right. Must have missed that. Jumping from 0.10.x to 11.x just makes that much sense ;-) Well, I hope that set...

Re: What was the reasoning for changing setColor from RGB 0-255 to 0-1 interval?

Well, also an argument that 0.xx.xx means unstable versions that are bound to change underlying functions - I agree. If only Love wouldn't take years to go from 0.7 to 0.11. With this pace we will never see 1.x in our lives. (this is not a criticism of the Love developers per se, but rather criticis...

Re: What was the reasoning for changing setColor from RGB 0-255 to 0-1 interval?

Ehm, I just downloaded official deb package of trAInsported (http://trainsportedgame.no-ip.org/download.php) and of course, it won't work, because ... it was made for 0.9 and my distro has love 0.11 executable. Kind of mess, now for me as a user, too.

Re: What was the reasoning for changing setColor from RGB 0-255 to 0-1 interval?

Well, what a discussion. And thanks for the pointers as why the former (standard) color addressing was not up to date with shaders. Anyway, I am pretty sure any good ecosystem provides backward compatibility to some extent. I have been part of multiple open source projects and the golden rule was no...
