I'm assuming you've never heard of LICK then.

Re: library naming questions abound??????

It is highly intentional because it's all Löve, baby. But now that you mention it, we really outta be coming up with much raunchier names for this stuff. If I make something Löve specific, maybe I'll call it the Go Föck Yourself lib or something.

Yeah, you gotta be careful when using any physics engine, really. They don't call it the "ten-ton hammer" for nothing.

Re: What module/class structure should I use in this case?

Have you taken a look at the lua users wiki? They have a lot of stuff having to do with different styles and practices. They should have a section on OOP. Go and pick something you like. Honestly, though, libs like middleclass and Bartbes' new class-commons are well worth adding the dependency. Ther...

Back with a little something...

After getting busy and uninterested in game development, I left all my code to sit for a while. Well, now I'm back and I decided I might as well share a little something I've found useful. Inspired by a post over on BlackBulletIV's blog, I decided that this was a must-have feature for Lua, if only i...
