Forward-scrolling racing game - Storing the track

For examples of what I'm thinking of, think early pre-polygon "3D" racers like Pole Position, Hang-On, and the like, but with the ability to go up and down as well as left and right. My game will actually feature a train but I intend to use the same methods in terms of doing the graphics a...

Re: Axion Scion - A Space Opera Strategic Card Game

Unfortunately it's not working for me. A brief bit of audio plays, then the blue screen of death appears. Here's the error: Error Thread error (Thread: 0x600002742a80) io:12: attempt to concatenate a nil value stack traceback: io:12: in function 'prompt' io:23: in function 'looper' io:34: in main ch...

Re: Offline Documentation

There are Lua and LÖVE docsets (among many others, of course) available for the lovely Mac offline docs app Dash. I'd really recommend giving it a look if you're a serious programmer (and use a Mac).

Re: LÖVE Support For Panic's Nova Editor

Nice! I've just given it an initial try so far but it seems to be working for me. This will definitely come in handy. Incidentally, I wrote a Nova extension for Luacheck which I'm pretty proud of. It's useful for LÖVE as well as Lua in general: https://github.com/GarrettAlbright/Luacheck.novaextensi...

Re: Physics & Camera - Infinite floor

You could have two floor rectangles. It shouldn't be hard to update one so that when the other goes out of the screen, it is placed in the next spot. It's very similar to the technique applied to tile rendering, where you only draw the tiles that are in the screen. Ah, good thinking. After a bit of...

Physics & Camera - Infinite floor

Hello. I'm hacking together something where I've got a ball which gets launched as if out of a cannon, and a floor the ball bounces on until it comes to a stop - it's basically an adaptation of the physics tutorial in the wiki. I've added a "camera" to keep the ball in frame based on what'...

Re: Debugging Tools and Tips

I run my projects from the Terminal. But in one case I created my own debugging system where everything was printed into a console on-screen so I didn't need to keep Terminal running. But in the end I just use Terminal. Occasionally I have wished the Console flag would open a Terminal window (In OS...
