Re: When does love.keypressed actually run?

Mouse clicks and key presses can be very quick, especially while typing or double clicking; loop n during love.update, user presses 'x' event knows something happened during love.draw, user lets go of 'x' loop n+1 event triggers, captures whatever key is currently pressed (none) -- the user's input ...

Re: When does love.keypressed actually run?

Lets say the game loop is in the middle of love.update and the user presses 'a'. Does keypressed actually capture 'a' at that point - or does it simply add an event for the next tick to capture any keyboard input if a key happens to still be pressed during the actual execution of keypressed? If it d...

Re: When does love.keypressed actually run?

What would happen while a user enters text into a text box? Would love.keypressed trigger for each letter typed?

When does love.keypressed actually run?

Lets say the player presses a key in the middle of the part of the game loop where love.update is running Does the function defined in love.keypressed trigger right there and then, essentially 'interrupting' love.update? Or is it queued up and run during the next tick during the love.event part of l...

Re: chunk index structure, flat or matrix?

Cool, I'll stick with the simple matrix for now then. Striding the matrix sounds like a nice optimization, but I want to have unlimited sized maps, at least at this stage. Has anyone had troubles updating their worlds in 'rows' (x, y) when 'columns' (y, x) would have been preferable? I'm thinking if...

chunk index structure, flat or matrix?

I'm splitting my game world into chunks, and was wondering if anyone had an opinion on the merits of a 'flat' store for the chunk's index, or if nested (2d matrix) style was fine? chunk[1][-5] = { ... chunk data ...) -- nested or chunk['1,-5'] = { chunkX = 1, chunkY = -5, ... chunk data ... } -- fla...

Re: debug.debug command history?

thanks, I gave it a try. It does add a command history, which is really cool. :awesome: I have to use it in −−always−readline mode though or it causes all sorts of bugs in the interactive prompt. What sort of cool things do you do with rlwrap? It's all new to me, and I don't quite get the filters th...

debug.debug command history?

I love debugging love code in real time using debug.debug and the terminal. But when I press the up arrow key to repeat the last command, it just prints ^[[A. I'm using the latest love binary on mac os 10.6.8. I have darwin10-gcc-4.2.1 installed, but I'm not very skilled at building. Would anyone kn...

Re: Can you make Love2d's Identity Not Be Inside the LOVE Fo

This is an old thread, but it still comes up in search results, so i thought I would update with my 2 cents. I just tested on 0.9.1 and 0.9.2 on mac os 10.6. All i needed to do was 'fuse' the game using these instructions, and it created my game's save folder in ~/Library/Application Support/game no...
