Do they run in "parallel" to the rest of code, or not? IE Does a function need to "end" before being th...

Re: "Questions that don't deserve their own thread" thread

Heya, I need a suggestion:
When I run into some kind of "freezing" error in my game, what's the best way to debug it?

Using Jumper's "Grid:eachRange" function

Hey there, I have a problem. I'm currently fooling around with the Gridlocked Player tutorial- I tried to have 3 characters move around the grid in succession, with all of them having a "range" they can move into each "turn". I managed to limit that range using the Jumper library (It seems super use...

This is cool as hell, and definitely explained some important concepts. ^^ But, I still don't know how to edit the LUA file AFTER I made the LOVE file with it.

Re: "Questions that don't deserve their own thread" thread
