Oh wait. Was it "i ate ie"?

No, it wasn't. Hahaha, you fail!
Can you chill out with the attitude please? Thanks.

Okay. Sorry about that. Just kinda wanted to make fun of how he was so frustrated of IE that failed to name his website right.

I'm not an English native speaker and my knowledge of 133t5p34k is rudimentary at best. I thought 133ts never cared to use the letter "h", since it's mute.

Anyway, my domain name is a mixture of 133t5p34k and "can I has cheezburgerz", so I can m4ik rulz az I go.
When I write def I mean function.

Yeah I got it pretty much, but "hate" is normally 1337-spelled as "h8", not just "8".

I just had a quite fucking frustrating moment, And thought bump this thread and share it cause why not. (perhaps you can get a laugh out of my pain)

So i'm setting up a little platformer engine, And i was working on the collision. I was basically just adapting a collision method i figured out in another project to this one, The tile system is quite different so it took a bunch of tweaks. Anyway, I was getting an awesome bug so that everytime the player collided with the left side of a tile he'd get warped 2 blocks to the left.

After literally an hour of troubleshooting, and trying just about everything, I realized i'd forgotten to rename a god damn variable. My palm and my forehead collided with such force i think i gave my self brain damage.

frustrating moment #1:
When I was a beginner I always thought the programming command for love.graphics.getWidth() was love.graphics.getWidth(player.pic) yet I learned about 1 week later it was supposed to be player.pic:getWidth() I kept getting nill values in my game for a whole week till I learned about this xD

frustrating moment #2:
Another frustrating moment was when I found out that I can never have a dev group because none of my friends knew how to code nor had the ability to understand code even with tutorials....but atleast my best friend has a sense of taste for art

I recently came across this frustrating moment.

What's wrong with this code:

Code: Select all

if not Source:isPaused and not Source:isStopped then
-- Source is playing
end

Yeah, took me a while to find that, and I was also very puzzled why it did work when I tried it in my debug loop.

Another one, I couldn't figure out why this gave me an error:

Code: Select all

function love.load()
button = { label = "label", action = "action" }
end

function love.mousepressed(x, y, button)
if button.label == 'label' then
-- activate(button.action)
end
end

Most frustrating moment was probably spending like two days to figure out how to use the filesystem for a terrible game.

Or just whenever I try to make a tile-based platformer and I need to prevent the player from overlapping with the tiles. Everytime it get's harder.
