Re: cannot understand the error in this code

Using the latest version of push.lua is the best advice we can give you. I have to apologize. Everybody actually knows the drill. We're just tired of addressing it over and over again, although it's not your fault for following CS50. As someone who is wrapping up CS50's GD50, I'd give a slight twis...

Re: Jitter when creating images in love.load

Also what is the best place/way to instantiate new assets like images? I have no idea why those two work differently. (I didn't test your code, just taking your word for it.) I hope someone smarter weighs in on that. That said, my approach is usually most similar to the one that works without jitte...

Re: Love Builder - Love2D Packaging Bash Script

Thanks for sharing this. You just saved me the trouble of making my own version for Linux. (I had already put together some scripts that weren't quite as nice for Mac and Windows.) I couldn't find a way to do replace the windows icon without wine and ResHack either. It looks like there is probably a...

Re: Is LÖVE2D a good framework for Windows desktop apps?

I'm not sure what you mean by a single vs multi-window app. A couple examples of one or the other would help this old brain. Most games that you've played are single window. Meaning they can only have one window on the screen. Your web browser, for example, can have multiple windows. So can your wo...

Re: How to render text at a higher resolution than the rest of the game?

For large amounts of text, I'd probably rather solve it differently.

That said, both of your scaled texts look much rougher than what I see... can you post the font you're using and the code where you load and draw the font? Maybe as a .love archive so we can see what's going on?

Re: How to render text at a higher resolution than the rest of the game?

Another alternative is to render your text after you call push:finish(). Here's a little test program ripped out of a gadget I made a few weeks ago when I was trying to figure out how push worked. Maybe it'll help you too. I tweaked the sizes to match what you described. It runs full screen. Press e...

Re: Mac Executable -- Logo Won't Update

Here's a thought. Does anyone have a Mac program (using latest love2d version) that is easily downloadable where you were successful in changing the logo? I wouldn't mind downloading. If the logo is changed, I can look to see what was different between what you and I did. If the logo doesn't change...

Good eye. I never spot things like that in code I can't run.

Re: generateQuads Limited to two instances?

It looks like you're calling generateQuads2 for ss.png and generateQuads for ss3.png. How do those two functions differ? I'd suggest a little debugging by print statements here. right after self.stumpsprites = generateQuads2(self.stumpspritesheet, 16, 16) add (caution: i wrote this in a forum text b...
