So, I am trying to create a simple game with love, I would like to include animations in this game, unfortunately, the tutorial on the wiki for AnAl does not seem to want to work for me.

I am not exactly sure how to get animations working in Love, does anyone have any sort of detailed resources or examples I could utilize? I would love you forever if you were able to help me, thanks! :awesome:

To animate something in LÖVE, you can either use a lot of images, one for each frame, or a single picture, which has all the frames next to each other.

You can use Quads to pick one portion of the image at the time and draw it.

Those are the basics. What sort of resources would you like to see? Tutorials, or animations used in actual games?

I would love to get some sort of sprite-sheet tutorial for animation in love if anyone has a good one.

Here's something I made for someone in IRC a while back. It might help.

What a bummer expecting an animation and seeing a static blank square :cry: #PO2problems #firstWorldProblems

[Response]Bartbes's AnimationLibrary Usage Sample

Hi Garb,

You could take a look at the minimum usage of bartbes's AnimationLibrary (sounds so wrong if typed as is, doesn't it? Guys, please stop making lewd library names; parents would forbid their kids to code on löve .. )
Garb-Animation.love
LÖVE0.7.2
(6.17 KiB) Downloaded 635 times
And one with a bit more twist:
Garb-Animation2.love
LÖVE0.7.2
(6.32 KiB) Downloaded 453 times
I hope they could help you pick up the library. Enjoy.

Note: sprites are borrowed from Advance Wars (Copyright belongs to Intelligent Systems I suppose).

I saw the garb animation thing, and coded an animation myself and this is how it looks like.

Code: Select all

function love.load()
	require(anal)
	spritesheet = love.graphics.newImage("animationtest.png")
	spritesheet.setFilter("nearest", "nearest")
	animation = newAnimation(spritesheet, 20, 20, 5, 4)
end

function love.update(dt)
	animation:update(dt)
end

function love.draw
	animation:draw(20, 20, 0, 5)
end
and got this

Code: Select all

Syntax error: main.lua:15:'(' expected near 'animation'

Traceback

[C]: ?
[C]: in function 'require'
[C]: in function 'xpcall'
Whats wrong with my code?
