Re: RPG script interpreter or such

Yes, a callback should work. But that'll break down the event code into several parts, which is not conveient to do when logic go complicated.

Re: Problem with generating shadows

Yes, I think you have some problem understanding tables. You are returning the same table in getShadow, that is why you have only 1 shadow. To return a copy or a table, you need to create a new one. function getShadow(vertices, lightX, lightY) x1 = vertices[1] y1 = vertices[2] ydist = y1-lightY xdis...

RPG script interpreter or such

Many RPG have their own event script interpreters, so I'm considering to make one. I know I can execute raw lua code directly, but that is not good to control event that can block the game. For example, after clicking an NPC, a couple of task is assigned. if somevariable>0 then dialogue("text1") els...

Re: Jumping(Platform)

If he is going for an isometric platformer, then I would use not use a base variable but rather a z position variable... Yeah, but I doubt it. Or it is too early too assume now. Back to topic: For example, when the character jumps forward to a platform which is higher than the ground. When his x-ax...

Re: Jumping(Platform)

If I'm making the game, I'll make at least 5 related properties. oliver.xpos, oliver.ypos, oliver.xvel, oliver.yvel, oliver.ybase xpos and ypos are your current coordinates, xvel and yvel are your velocities. ybase is tricky, it is your base altitude. If you have some platforms, and your character i...

Re: framerate/dt problem

Back to topic, I think it has something to do with float calculation (like 100.00000000001 vs 99.99999999999). if self.py == math.floor(self.y) and self.px == math.floor(self.x) then Although you do this check here, but maybe math.round is better? Or perhaps you should avoid using dt as a parameter,...

Re: framerate/dt problem

Nah, it doesn't report error in 0.7.2, just crash, so I'm not sure what happened.
Although in 0.8.0 it works when if I remove those .lua.

Re: framerate/dt problem

BTW, the game doesn't run on my PC (windows).

I also tried 0.7.2, but it simply crashed.

========

Edit*

Code: Select all

require("src/constants")
require("src/map")
require("src/actors")
require("scenes/game")
Remove those .lua and it works.

Re: Randomizing an initial layout, with caveats

In short,

1. Add a block without considering the issue.
2. Destroy those adjacent blocks using the rule you already wrote for your game.
3. Repeat 1 and 2 until there are enough blocks on screen.
