Columns! 0.0.1

Postby EmmanuelOga » Mon Apr 04, 2011 12:57 am

Here is Columns! 0.0.1.

Since it uses framebuffers, I'm figuring some of you won't be able to test it. I tried to make a video with fraps on a windows PC but it did not render some of the stuff that is drawn from a framebuffer (weird). Anyway, I'm attaching some screen shots for now.

There are only 15 levels for now. I was thinking of adding more but I got lazy. The current levels are not particularly well thought/balanced either. :oops:

I plan to host its source somewhere next week.

All feedback will be welcomed!

This game is sweet, and my favorite background mode was fast by the way.
My best combo was only 4x though. I love how the background goes into warp speed when you're doing something awesome. Each level got progressively harder and introduced new elements. The last one I played had colored cubes with arrows surrounded by black blocks. I didn't understand what that was.

Thanks guys, glad you like it! :ultraglee:

Yeah that level is a bit too difficult for its own good. The arrows indicate that when you destroy a gem it will destroy all gems in the direction the arrow is pointing. So for finishing that level you'll need to remove that yellow gem at the bottom right.

Did you use Po2 framebuffers? On my MacBook it crashes.

Interesting. I did use po2 everywhere I handle images or framebuffers. Does it spit a backtrace or does it just segfault?

It's probably because the shared graphics doesn't support it. I guess a "segfault" (segmentation fault, right?), it didn't spit back a trace message, it only froze after the "made with LOVE" screen, and then crashed.

At least you got to see the title screen... :cry:

I wonder if some kind of framebuffer support checking could be done. It looks pretty bad when a program just hangs like that.

The best I know of is using pcall:

Code: Select all

result = pcall(love.graphics.newFramebuffer, argsGoHere)

This happened to me under LOVE 0.7.0 but not under 0.7.1
