Re: Tower Climb

Thanks! :)

If you can, I suggest creating more random components to build the tower from. It started to feel a bit "canned" after a few minutes - although that might just be me since I'm really interested in procedural generation and I'm getting good at spotting it. ;)

Re: Tower Climb

Fun game. :) I'd appreciate a Pause button (space bar?) since it tracks time. I tried hitting ESC during gameplay to pause the game, and found myself back at the main menu. Is that intentional? A height counter of some kind would be nice to track player progress. Are all towers the same height? I di...

If they hold to their track record, this is just the first 2 steps of the MS takeover style: Embrace, Extend, Extinguish https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Embrace,_extend,_and_extinguish Intentionally driving out all others to create your own monopoly is, at best, selfish. It's pretty much the corporate...

Re: Creatin an adventure/rpg game.

Hi Syl, I strongly suggest you begin with some super simple Lua games to get you used to coding. Then you can expand from there. Be aware that jumping straight in to designing a full featured game is like jumping into the deep end of the pool in order to learn how to swim - most people will drown / ...

Re: Minerman - On iOS & Android

Lol, I suck at these. I got a high score of 175 so far. I don't normally enjoy twitch games (or whatever you call them), but I kinda enjoyed this. Fun music too!

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...
