Platformer Collaboration. I'm a noob, so noobs are welcome.

Post by PixelHero »

Hi. I transferred from Scratch Coding to Lua, tried almost every game engine out there, including Unity's personal edition. Then I came to Love2D. I liked making platformers on Scratch, so I thought I might be able to do it with Lua. I was wrong. I need help. May I please have some? I want an animated character that can double-jump. I don't care if it has one scrolling level, or multiple stationary levels. I have the character done (several, actually) so I don't need help with that.
It's the code I need help with. That, and converting it into a .love file. Is that enough explanation? If it isn't, I'll explain more.

All i can do is give you a little example on how its done:
jump.love

Just tell if anything there isnt clear for you.
And regarding converting, there is no such thing as a .love file really. Its either a zip or 7z file renamed.

Hey, i started learning exactly this stuff with the tutorial series by DevJeeper, hes even on this very forum. Just copy what he does until you got a basic understanding of lua and love2d!

I've tried his tutorials already. They have NEVER worked for me. If that sounds a bit harsh, sorry. I just can't use Tiled.

Huh? I did a search for that on Google just now, and I can't find anything by that name.

Nothing stops you from placing it ON the ground yourself.
Currently touching stops movement but it gives crap about where that is.
