And the idle-movement camera should definitely be much slower, it sort of made me dizzy. :P Other than that, it works beautifully.
Thanks!, and yeah. I'll be working on that. :)

Re: splash screens, game states, loading, etc.

All decent ways to do that basically involve having a draw and update function for each state, put into a big table, and then you can defer love.update and love.draw to those functions. Yeah that's actually how I imagined doing it, and it's how I've done it in the past as well. Is this the best way?

splash screens, game states, loading, etc.

So I've begun thinking of menus, and start screens for my game. I want to have a nice big "LOVE2D" screen when the game starts, as well as some other minor stuff. I'm not totally unfamiliar with game states and I could probably create a really gross version of what I want, though I'm wonde...

Re: Scary Monsters

Seeing it in motion is awesome. Keep up the good work. Might I suggest making your camera sway either significantly less powerful, or a fair bit slower? Yeah, the cam needs to be tweaked quite a bit and will definitely change. ps - thanks to everyone who actually helped me get that camera working.

Re: small "shaky-cam" effect

ahh new lovers ... your overwriting the original values with the ones provided in the formula, = overwrites so maybe (without looking at a single bit of code...) camera.x = camera.x + (camera.xmag * math.sin(camera.time * camera.speed * 2)) camera.y = camera.y + (camera.ymag * math.sin(camera.time ...

In love.update: camera.time = camera.time + dt camera.x = camera.xmag * math.sin(camera.time * camera.speed * 2) camera.y = camera.ymag * math.sin(camera.time * camera.speed) in love.draw: love.graphics.push() love.graphics.translate(math.floor(camera.x), math.floor(camera.y)) -- drawing code love....

Re: small "shaky-cam" effect

When I do shaky cam, I use a random offset, but if you want to use figure-eights, that can be easily accomplished. Remember the sword-slinging in Simon? You'd use something similar to that: xoffset = xmagnitude * math.sin(time * speed * 2) yoffset = ymagnitude * math.sin(time * speed) for a standin...

Re: Scary Monsters

a few things. I'm having an incredible amount of difficulty deciding how combat will work in game, and I'd be interested to hear your ideas, since I haven't mentioned it yet. How do you guys see combat here? - I had an idea to do something similar to how they do in the Pokemon games, except not turn...
