Re: [Proposal] Better multimedia formats.

At that point there is no benefit to using animation-supporting format over any other format.

Re: What code editor do you use ?

IDEs are holdover from the times where it was either that or Microsoft Notepad, or worse - Vi. Same as two-panel file managers coming from the times where it was either that or DOS command line. Modern text editors have all the features you might wish for and they don't suffer from being extremely h...

Re: [Proposal] Better multimedia formats.

I don't believe library size has much to do with anything (see: box2d), it's the licensing and ability to statically link in general, and whether or not it's a duplicate feature. A game engine is not a media player, it doesn't need to support all popular formats, in fact it doesn't needs to support ...

Re: Fixture:GetBoundingBox gives irrational results

The obvious solution would be to use proper averaging formula, that being x = ( a + b ) / 2

Re: [Proposal] Better multimedia formats.

Video-ish image formats are not useful because texture atlases and texture arrays exist.

You need to use the Z coordinate and perspective projection.

Re: Need help with saving

Yes you should. You shouldn't try to read from uninitalized blank hitboxes though. Programming ain't magic. There's literally nothing that happens without your explicit instruction to do so, in other words, you must issue specific instructions for anything to happen. So pay great mind to what instru...

Re: Need help with saving

When you load a game save you re-create the gamestate from scratch, the same way as you do when you just load a game. The difference is that regular game load uses default values, and save game load uses saved values.

Re: [LIB] utf8string

It seems patterns are not UTF-8 aware. Should've expected that, since the entire system operates on single byte characters.🤦‍♀️ Yeah for pattern matching a simple wrapper will not do, what was I thinking. I can't think of a way to automatically replace strings' metatable when and only when string m...
