Re: Inventory and equipment inventory help

I really don't think you should develop an MMORPG, or an RPG for that matter with the amount of skill you have thus far. I'm sorry to say but I can almost assure you the project will fall by the wayside. Try something more simple, get into the logics of it. Create code, don't copy code. You gotta le...

Re: teaching friend problem

I'm pretty experienced in XNA. It, like love, is pretty structured, however Xna is more barebone. You have to implement everything from the ground up with xna. Its pretty complicated to get an image rotated or scaled, as you have to pass that to the spritebatch when you add sprites to it. It can get...

Re: bump.lua - minimal collision detection lib

Ah, that's actually really cool. I may use this in the future. I'm usually experimenting with physics engines in my games. If I'm not using box2D I'm usually just doing bounding box. Perhaps in future projects I can use this instead, sounds like it would save me a lot of hassle.

Re: bump.lua - minimal collision detection lib

Not trying to bash you library, maybe I'm not completely understanding, but why not just use a simple Bounding Box solution. It offers the same benefits.

love.physics getting collision force

I'm trying to find the measurement of force of a collision callback. Any ideas?

I looked at Contact objects, they'll provide friction information but not any information about forces or impulses.

Re: To Trigger Animations At Certain Times - help?

You're code is objective, but in a seemingly weird way... Your objects should have there own methods so inside each object is the code to control that object. Usually I give objects there own init(load), update, and draw functions. This organizes your code and later on can prevent a mess of oddly na...

Re: Questions before trying Love

Check this out -> https://love2d.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=3733&start=20 Love2d 0.8 has available shader effects. Something I think a lot of other 2D game engines lack support for. I also think love has an overall cleaner API, and makes much more sense. I remember using PyGame and getting frust...

Re: How to limit my frames per second?

using the sleep timer just idles the instructions for that duration. You should set the cap through dt, dt is a pointer that references a value from my understanding. Therefore allowing you to change its value outside your scope.

You can serialize your gamestate as is with DataDump, then save to a file.

Re: High processor usage drawing forms on mouse position

It seems odd that that would take that much processing, however calling for the mouse coordinates everytime you draw something seems like a waste. Try something like this: local x, local y = love.mouse.getPosition( ) love.graphics.setColor(0, 200, 0, 100) love.graphics.circle("fill", x, y, test1) lo...
