i require a menu please ^^

Post by vt007 »

Wsup? ^^

I dont know how many of you know C but i will try to explain it simple:

How can i create different pages on screen in LOVE
(e.g. INTRO then MENUE then GAME then PAUSE etc)

in C its kinda easy, You just have to create 2 different .c files (e.g. main.c / menu.c / play.c etc)
then include them all together (where needed^^) and mark a key like this to blit it on "screen":

Code: Select all

[...]event.key.keysym.sym){
                    case SDLK_p:
                        options(screen);
                        break;
} [...]
then same stuff if you wanna go back...

So is there any way to do this in love2d?

thx ^^

PS: i tried to make a splashIntro as a big "fat" function in splashIntro.lua then include it in the main.lua
(e.g.
--main.lua
require("splashIntro")

function love.load()
splashIntro()
[...]
end
[...]
)
but it crashes and says me some weird stuff, idk... ^^"""
and in any case i dont even know how to FreeSurface it...

What you're asking for is some sort of game state management.
There are plenty of ways to do it (mostly involving some OOP solution).
Here is how I do mine: https://bitbucket.org/dannyfritz/blank-love/src

Actually, it was important, because I could not read it at all. Please stop using the color=#BFFFBF tag.
