Re: Help me decide what to do next?

The problem lesslucid has is that his functions look a lot like that one (or are even more complex). Is it really that bad, I thought? Then I check... I have an updateBall function with almost 100 lines! :rofl: ...this gives me an idea of a gentle way back into coding; I will try to move all of tha...

Re: Help me decide what to do next?

Trying to program after a couple of months away from it hurts my brain.

Re: Noob on collision detection

How do you turn circles and rectangles into the images in your game? It won't give you perfect "per pixel" detection, but you just have a rectangle sitting roughly over the area of the image you want to be "collidable" and use that as your basis. So, a perfectly square bullet that's 5 pixels by 5 pi...

Re: Help me decide what to do next?

Thanks! I could probably afford to make the easiest level a little tougher than that ... At this point this is just curiosity rather than a real problem, but... should everything except the other callback functions be inside the love.load function? The explanation in the tutorial says: "This functio...

Re: ideas for new game

I think less interaction than PQ is a pretty tall order... I think the only way to do that would have it automatically begin every time your computer starts up; that way installing it would be the only interaction you did. :ultrahappy:

Re: Help me decide what to do next?

Ok, now with variable difficulty levels. I don't think it's quite reached the status of unmanageable spaghetti but I can see it's headed that way. I've beaten level 4, I suspect level 5 is completely impossible. Hmm. I think my next project will be to try to use the middleclass module to create a br...

Re: Help me decide what to do next?

Thanks for the feedback! I've added some intro & outro screens and altered the balance a bit to make it easier / possible to win. Maybe I should try to add different difficulty levels now? Hmm.
