Re: RetroLove

Wasn't sure if I should start a new thread or not, but I've released RetroLove (all 3 games in one app) on Google Play here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... .retrolove

It's not an amazing set of clones, but it is my first release on a mobile app store of any kind.

Re: Building love-android-sdl2 on Win10 (x64) step by step

Apparently all I had to do to target API 26 (the minimum required to publish on Google Play as of August 1st, 2018) was to update the targetSdkVersion in .\app\build.gradle. I've updated the guide to reflect this.

Re: Building love-android-sdl2 on Win10 (x64) step by step

Whelp, I've done all the work to get my apk signed for distribution, and Google Play won't accept it because it's targeting API 25.

Guess I've got some more work to do. :-(

Re: Building love-android-sdl2 on Win10 (x64) step by step

I assume that you haven't yet found a method that works for Love 11.1? I tried to build off the android 0.11.x branch but try as I might, I couldn't get it to build. There's just so many layers of dependencies in this toolchain that no matter what I tried there were always tons of errors, and I'm n...

Building love-android-sdl2 on Win10 (x64) step by step

I'm on Windows 10 (64-bit) and I wrote a game for LOVE 0.10.2. I decided I wanted to try releasing my game as an Android app, but software changes fast and none of the official docs worked exactly as written. I'm not a Java/Android developer, and I wanted to install as little as possible to my syste...

Re: Distributing your games (making a .love file)

For those who want an easy command-line way of creating a zip archive on Windows without requiring any external tools, I find it easy enough to create a simple PowerShell script and embed it inside a batch file. There's an example of what I mean here: https://github.com/jonthysell/RetroLove/blob/mas...

Distributing multiple love games in one package?

Is there any existing/standard way to release multiple love games together in one package, preferably with a launcher to pick which game to run? I'm building a small collection of retro clones (https://github.com/jonthysell/RetroLove) and I'd love to release them for Android as a single apk rather t...

Re: RetroLove

I've added my take on Asteroids. It's pretty much done, I just need to figure out what makes sense for touch controls and possibly add continuing levels / gaining extra lives to make it more interesting.

Re: RetroLove

Thanks, I applied the filter, and it does look better for retro graphics, though I think I'll have to find a better bitmap font for the future. My plan for an original game is definitely low-res, which is why I'm playing around with scaling small resolutions now. I'm thinking maybe 256x144, as if yo...

RetroLove

Hi all, I discovered LOVE this past weekend while trying to build my own simple 2D game framework from scratch. LOVE is way cooler than anything I could have built in my free time, so I jumped straight into making some simple retro games: https://github.com/jonthysell/RetroLove So far I've got playa...
