Re: How exactly should I learn

I've never used udemy, but that made me curious so I did some googling. Here's the love2d course: https://www.udemy.com/lua-love/ You have to pay for courses on the site, but it looks like right now (at least, on my PC) there's a sale and it's available at $10.99 for the next 13 hours, instead of be...

Re: #Game State Machine# help required!!

Have you worked with multiple .lua files before? I'm thinking that's where the problem is. I haven't learned game states myself (working on it, LOL) but your main.lua file that's in the ZombieGame doesn't require any other files, which means it's not going to link things up properly. At least, when ...

[SOLVED] Re: BadWindow error on Linux Mint 19 XFCE

LOL, so removing libgl1-mesa-dri didn't just break the display manager, but it also somehow prevented apt-get from being able to acquire a lock, which meant no (easy) updates. I didn't already have taskel, so I couldn't install it easily. So, yeah, I wiped the drive and started fresh with Linux 19 C...

Re: BadWindow error on Linux Mint 19 XFCE

No worries, really. I caused the problem and it's not the first time I've b0rked it. It's a big part of how I've been learning Linux - break it, learn why it broke, fix it, carry on. That's what makes it my screwing around system! :)

And I'll have to look into tasksel. Thanks for the tip.

Re: BadWindow error on Linux Mint 19 XFCE

No, I'm not using VMWare. Not sure why that was listed in driconf. I tried installing libgl1-mesa-dri, but it reported as being already installed. So I tried uninstalling it, and it said that would remove 110 packages and free up over 300MB of space. I thought it was strange, but proceeded anyway. '...

Re: BadWindow error on Linux Mint 19 XFCE

I'll try what you suggested when I have time, but for now this is really confusing. I followed the link you gave, and installed driconf. Here's what I get: cooper@Shuttle:~$ driconf Screen "0" is not direct rendering capable. Driver "vmwgfx" is not installed or does not support configuration. Driver...

[SOLVED] BadWindow error on Linux Mint 19 XFCE

Solved! Turns out the culprit was a newer version of Mesa, which broken OpenGL 2 compatibility with Intel 3rd Gen GPU's. Solution is here: https://love2d.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=85719&p=223077#p223077 ==== I have an old Intel Atom PC system that I play around with. Until recently, I had Linux...

Re: LÖVE 11.1 released!

Hi, thanks for the answers. I noticed that love.exe doesn't work cause it is 'forcing' himself to run at external graphics card, even by setting to run at integrated graphics. The external card driver is the lattest nvidia gforce v399.07. What's the DirectX version? I don't know anything helpful ab...
