Re: Beginner looking for advice

Read through these. There's even one specifically for Snake. The only thing this won't teach you is how to divide your code into multiple files.

Re: is there a better way to code this?

You've got to be careful removing elements from a table while you're looping through it. If you remove the 2nd block in blocks, then the rest will all rearrange themselves, and your 3rd block will become your 2nd. Then your loop will try to get the 3rd block in the new blocks table, but will give yo...

Re: Bump in the Night

Hit a bit of a designers-block with the alien scenario mechanic, but I finally got it figured out. New version is up.

Re: Could really use some help in Lua, have hit a wall and can't move forward.

I applaud your effort to attempt to roll your own animation code. It can be a great learning experience. But if you want this to "just work," then I suggest using Anim8 (https://github.com/kikito/anim8) or another of the Love2D helper libraries for animation that the community has written.

Re: Could really use some help in Lua, have hit a wall and can't move forward.

Hard to say without knowing what you actually want this code to do. It looks like you actually meant for line 23 to end with para .x = 0 instead of para[currentFrame].x = 0. Since as soon as the player lifts off of the "d" key, the currentFrame will switch to the image in para that hasn't had it's x...

Re: Issues porting light_world.lua to 11.1 from 0.10.1

I use tanema's light_world in my own project, which still uses LOVE 0.10.2. It's the only thing holding me back from upgrading. As an experiment, I tried removing the post shader system to see what it would do to my game, and I started getting an entirely black screen, just like you. I think the pos...

Re: Bump in the Night

No recording this time, but I learned just enough about GLSL and Love shaders to google and find the wobbly rainbow effect I wanted to use for when the aliens (the next scenario I'm working on) mess with your head and reverse your controls. I also sat down and brainstormed what the aliens' behavior ...

Re: Bump in the Night

Ghost scenario v2. Upon playing through my first attempt at this scenario a couple times, I realized that it was VERY boring. Having a stealth game where you have to sit still and wait a long time gets really boring really fast. This new scenario is much more active and demands a lot more from the p...

Re: Bump in the Night

I tried the latest version to have a look and once starting the game after just a few seconds it said out of memory. This is on my iMac. Ouch! Sorry to hear that. The game is not optimized at all. It loads all the resources it will need for any scenario right now, so there will be a lot of unused s...
