Re: Calling a previous file

Löve will always call your "main.lua" file. If you want to call code inside another file you need to require it. Below is an example (that assumes you want to reach the shape.lua file). require("shape") function love.load() end function love.update(dt) end function love.draw() en...

Re: Love 2d showing black screen

Just like "CogentInvalid" pointed out, Löve requires you to name your main file "main.lua".
Also it would be best to share the file, rather than a printscreen. Bonus points if you do it in the "Support and Development"

Re: Why you get bugs & how to fix them [Youtube]

1. It's useful even for me who already knows all this stuff. 2. The Tab>Space Rant made me lol. As a 2-Space Indentation Coder, the "Configurable Tabs" argument is what I'll remember when making big, open-source projects. But since all of my projects are small, I'm re-inforced to use Spac...

Why you get bugs & how to fix them [Youtube]

It's bit a bit over a month since the last video in the beginner tutorial series was released. This video is a bit different in that it covers a broader topic. The idea was to provide some information and help for beginners who are running into issues and not sure how to proceed. Everything from dif...

Re: Tables and "for" statements

I'm having some difficulty understanding how these statements are defined. Most of the tutorials I can find just tell you to do something like, for i, v do But, they don't tell you why and what that means, they tell you not to worry about it now. I can copy the code, and it works, but if I don't kn...

Re: Memory Profiling?

Iirc this has been discussed before, unfortunately there's no simple way to count all the main memory used by the application as far as i'm aware. That said, LuaJIT has a memory limit (from 1-2GB on 64bit to 4GB on 32bit or something like that), whether or not you're intending to use the 32 or 64 b...

Re: I tried using Atom to edit but it keep getting this bug

To elaborate on what Zorg said; The error code tells us where in your code the error is, but we can't tell you what the problem is unless we can see your code. Imagine you wrote a book and your editor tells you there is a spelling mistake in the first sentence on page 439, that's basically whats goi...
