Re: Ludum Dare 25 Results

Thank you. :)

I'm still not sure what I'm going to do next time. A result like this is very gratifying, but the work required is grinding. We'll see.

Ludum Dare 25 Results

Well, the results have come in for Ludum Dare 25. Here's the competition's top 50 , out of 902 entries. I personally scored place #27 (my best yet), which I didn't expect at all, especially considering the input lag issue. Congratulations to leafo on scoring #19; not particularly surprising consider...

Re: Tic Tac Toe Board

Pretty much what Jasoco said. Show us what you've tried, and then we might be able help.

Also, this kind of thing is better posted in the "Support and Development" subforum.

Keep in mind that series is more targeted at those with some previous programming experience, so you may find that a bit hard to grasp.

Re: love.keyboard.isDown() Function

You should be using dt when moving your character around. Indeed. Example: char1x = char1x + speed * dt I'm guessing the framerate of your game has been capped at 60 (thanks to v-sync), so you'll probably want to set speed to 60 to get a similar effect to what you were getting before: char1x = char...

Re: Optimization tips

by experience, i know that drawing is worse than calculating If you're talking about the performance of visual calculations versus logic calculations, it depends. It's that rendering is more draining in most games (especially modern 3D ones), though there are some which rely heavily on logic (advan...

Re: Help with Tic Tac Toe

Okay guys. I know it seems that way, that I'm lazy and all, but I've tried and there isn't enough time. I've downloaded tutorials, watched them for 2 days, read bunch of stuff. The project is due January 5th. Try to understand me, please. Ok. Perhaps try to formulate an idea on how the game might w...

Re: Optimization tips

Be sure to check your FPS (frames per second) too. You can get the current FPS by calling love.timer.getFPS ; you'll want to print it out to the screen. If you think something is a performance hog, run the game with it on and again with it off. For small things, you won't be able to tell a differenc...

Re: Löve/Lua-Performance sucks on my PC... why?

Ohhh, I thought it was related to the posting-count... I think it used to be, but not anymore. EDIT: Proles and inner party are references to George Owells book 1984, and the telescreen is an important item from the book. Oh, I get it; that's pretty cool. (Hadn't heard of a telescreen, but I do rem...
