### First Ride

Greetings! My first foray into Love. Not much going on here, just playing around with the mechanics. Very fun and pretty quick to put stuff together. Need to figure out a better way to run updates than deleting .love archive, re-zipping files, and adding .love extension.

love file attached

To do:
-turn the rider (player) into an object
-make an alternate version with a static rider and a scrolling ground level
-add collision detection to the ground layer rather than position based on y coordinates
-add sound effects for the gallop
-...aaaand the big one, come up with some actual play mechanics

YOu can actually open the .love's as an archive and just treat it as a folder.

### Re: First Ride

very nice

as for adding files to a .love the easiest way ive found is creating 2 batch files containing

Code: Select all

rename *.love *.zip

Code: Select all

rename *.zip *.love
assuming you have winrar or something similar installed that lets you drag files onto an archive icon to add them you can double click the first batch file, drag the main.lua on (or whatever your adding) then run the second batch file

Thanks for the tips on zipping. Saves even more annoyance than time. And thanks for the feedback. Nice little community you've got here.

I did the graphics, yes. The horse was hastily rotoscoped from an old Muybridge series. The rest is just a quick hodgepodge of textures, brushes, and snippets of junk in Photoshop.

I've been recently sidetracked re-doing some old python scripts in PHP that grab and manipulate text from various sources, but I'll soon get back on the (this was unanticipated, I swear) ...horse (ugh).

Really do appreciate the warm welcome. Reason all the more to keep playing around with Love.

If i arent mistaken, and you just want to test the updates you made to a script, you can just drag the folder containing your game onto love.exe and save yourself all the zip/rezipping.
Nice aesthetic style.
