Re: Is there a way to simulate a mouse click?

Not what you asked for but depending on what you aim to do maybe an alternative - https://www.autoitscript.com/site/ Years ago I used it for a simple automation task, I can't even remember what it was, but I know it worked quite well and was easy to use. If you need the rest of Löve too it's of cour...

Re: wwwoooo

All things equal, for obvious reasons a framework would be less prone to bugs as it's just less and lowerlevel code with less potential for sideeffects due to the usage/data. But there's no such realworld situation where all things are equal so in the end it highly depends. The very general rule of ...

Re: Another Lua Vector library

Thank you for your comment, I had not thought about that, do you think that change is enough to optimize it and work properly? The suggested change is a good, and primarily memory and construction time optimization. Without it, each single vector requires more than 1 kb of memory, quite an overhead...

Re: Is it that easy to reverse-engineer a love2d game?

Oh while we are in the topic of commercial games made with Love2d, i want to point out that Kingdom Rush: Frontiers and Kingdom Rush Origins for PC are also made with Love2d both part of a very successful tower defense franchise (my personal favorite) will post the links if you want to check them o...

Re: Another Lua Vector library

I'd like to repeat what ivan said as it's not only not very efficient, it also wastes a lot of memory. The problem with the code, as it is, is not primarily the closure but whenever you create a vector instance (which, at the moment, you do in almost all core operations) you create a new table and t...

Re: Is it that easy to reverse-engineer a love2d game?

So i have got the answer i expected - Don't make a commercial game in Love!! Huh, on what answers is this based? There's no reason for that, you just should not fear the virtually non existing problem of reverse engineering of your code/data first and foremost because nobody who aims to do anything...

Re: Is it that easy to reverse-engineer a love2d game?

Don't make it harder than it is ... your typical tools like 7zip (or even the builtin Windows zip support) happily finds and extracts the zip compatible part of the file - with 7zip you don't even have to change the suffix. So yeah, it's a simply container format and so it's easy to access it's cont...

Re: A Question about SpriteBatch and Maxsprites

Pre 11, the size of the batch was a fixed value, quads added beyond the limit were discarded. With the current version, the buffer grows dynamically as required and to still offer good performance it does the same as your typical dynamic array/vector does, i.e. it doubles the size whenever more spac...

Re: What's everyone working on? (tigsource inspired)

> of course know and own 1849 and yeah, it's a very similar style. We're aiming a bit for bigger cities as, as far as I played 1849 the maps are really tiny. Lethis is another game in a similar style and pretty good as well. You played it, I KNEW IT. Anno 1602 too? Also yeah, was kind of annoyed ho...

Re: What's everyone working on? (tigsource inspired)

Nelvin, looks like 1849 a bit. If you're not familiar it's a resource manager, where you ferry resources between buildings producing more and more complex resources. If you're not familiar look it up. It's a little hard to find on google (owing to how common the number '1849' is), so you'll have to...
