### Environments, safe and unsafe.

Hello, I am working on user defined scripts, and I can't find a list of SAFE/UNSAFE modules. Eg something like this: http://lua-users.org/wiki/SandBoxes Is there a defined list somewhere on the wiki? If not I think it's a good idea to list them, as for example filesystem.remove and openURL can be qu...

### Re: Physics Shape Problem

I'm sorry, Relazy , I'm not really good in math. How do I use your snippet in my code? Can you make an example? Sorry for the late reply I wasn't available during the last few days. I have made a demo for you, using the snipet. Controls: c = spawn your polygon b = spawn a ball p = pause the simulat...

### Re: Physics Shape Problem

I'd use love.math.triangulate for that though. You may also want to make an algorithm to make shapes for you and check em for self intersection etc, it saves a huge amount of time and effort. I should point out that Box2d has a few limitations. For example, very long or thin triangles may not be ge...

### Re: Physics Shape Problem

I'd use two rectangle shapes for the body. This. I'd use love.math.triangulate for that though. You may also want to make an algorithm to make shapes for you and check em for self intersection etc, it saves a huge amount of time and effort. Heres a snipet that you may want to use: local shape = pca...

### Stencil or Mesh?

Hello. I have been working on a game (sort of an engine too) and during my development I have come forth a question of sorts: Which is more efficient; Stencil or Mesh? My editor for maps has the ability to add shapes and then to attach a texture to it, the image is reused across all other shapes tha...

### Re: Box2D - ray casting on mutlifixture polygons

Thank you Ivan, You're the best around! :D I implemented a method similar to yours but ignored the fixtures and focused on the rays independently, so that there is no need to look up fixtures; function rayCast:cast() self.hitlist = {} local x1 = self.x -- Origin X local y1 = self.y -- Origin Y local...

### Box2D - ray casting on mutlifixture polygons

I recently started to use box2d's raycast, it works fine.. as seen in figure 1 (multiple squares) 0_raycast.png However it doesn't work for polygons, that being complex polygons which consist of more than one fixture. As seen in figure 2 and 3 (same polygon) 0_raycast_poly.png fig3.png Here is the c...

### Re: Löve "Light vs. Shadow" Engine v2

I would need to calculate the normal/glowmap/material all at once for the draw call and right now I do not know how I could do that while keeping the API relatively simple and not prone to user error. I would love to see a proposal Huh? why would you need to calculate normal/glow/mat? When you use ...

### Re: Löve "Light vs. Shadow" Engine v2

Thanks for the quick reply, its fixed now. Although I have a question. Why do you support animations, but no quads? Wouldn't it be easier to allow the user to make quads and then introduce his own preferred animation plugin/own instead of forcing the use of anim8 for animations? Besides quads can be...

### Re: Löve "Light vs. Shadow" Engine v2

My issue is fixed but..
I am having a few problems /w the new build. Glow maps appear to be broken or something else along the line, test the complex example and see for yourself.

thanks for your work so far I really appreciate it.
