Sludgeman (a little platformer attempt)

Hi all, For a little holiday project I played around with making a little platformer. Levels are simply .txt files so it's really simple to make new levels (have a go!). There are 20 levels and counting... gameplay.jpg controls.jpg Give it a try and let me know your thoughts? Download the latest ver...

Battlecards

Hi folks, Thanks for the pointers on the previous thread I've steered away from any copyrighted material and have something playable that is in development, with the possibility for the addition of "skins" to customise the game. Here's a quick demo video: 7X4eQJvRhNM I'll keep this post updated with...

Re: Löve 11.1: love.filesystem.createDirectory( ) doesn't seem to work

Just a guess (because I'm not sure what happens if you try to create a directory when it already exists) but have you looked in the defined save directory (check conf.lua) to see if the directory does exist now? if love.filesystem.getInfo("skins", "directory") == nil then love.filesystem.createDirec...

Re: I need some help loading an external sprite sheet.

Re: Lord of the Rings Battlecards

Thanks both. I think I agree with Jeeper on reflection - now I've got a game that might actually work it's just not worth the risk/hassle. I think I knew that when originally posting really, I just couldn't see good ways around it but now I think I can. It'll probably take about a month to make the ...

Re: issue on showing large image

Just to say the graphics look great though!
Flicking down the screen was almost like doing one of those old flip books where the pages come to life as you use your thumb :)

Re: Lord of the Rings Battlecards

Thanks for the thoughts bobby-j. I've been thinking today and there may be quite a good new way to approach things. The way the game is built, a lot of the copyright material is easily swappable (music, card images etc.). So I think I could manage to make a "base" version with no copyright infringem...

Re: Lord of the Rings Battlecards

Thanks for the feedback Jeeper. Edited the original post to latest version. Simple fix on the PLAYER TURN screen thank you. It was a left over from "pass and play" but I've taken it out for single player. Sounds like good words of wisdom on copyright though it's difficult for me to ditch the LOTR st...
