Re: Keyboard

Hi,

By no means an expert but I think you could...

a) Test in love.update() using love.keyboard.isDown("key").

Re: Fledgling (LD46)

Well done, it's lots of fun! I liked the game mechanics - especially the way the owl swooped and the rats ran away. The chosen music gives it quite a sombre feel? I guess it is a night-time game with life and death at stake though! I would have liked some sort of progress bar and perhaps for the win...

Re: [SOLVED] Erratic slowing down/juddering

Thanks for taking a look. I didn't know about the function... print(garbagecollect("count")) ...before trying to solve this one so that was a good learning curve.

[SOLVED] Erratic slowing down/juddering

Hi folks, Could anyone help me figure out why this little beginning-of-a-game slows down cumulatively but erratically?

Re: Cave Bird!

Nice work!

The download said it was damaged (mac) when I first tried it, but the .love file inside the app worked just fine.
