Hot Particles - particle editor

Hot Particles is a new particle editor for LÖVE. I tried making it one snap spicier than the existing particle editors I've seen around the forums.

Main features:
  • Layer multiple particle systems
  • Pixel art mode
  • Animation editor
  • Save/load projects and textures in any folder
  • Export Lua or any custom format, to files or clipboard
  • Lots of sliders!
Other features:
  • Undo/redo
  • Automatic buffer size calculation
  • "Kick-start" continuous particle systems
  • Fast-forward/slowdown time
  • Shader functionality
  • Recent files list
  • File browser
  • Copy/paste
  • Custom background images
Download .exe or .love from GitHub Image

See the README that comes with the program for more information.

Notes:
If there are any issues, please report them in this thread. I'm open for feature suggestions too.
I haven't been able to test the program in Linux or macOS yet so it's possible there are some issues on those systems.

When running the universal version with love11.3 I got the same error.

@4vZEROv
Hmm, there seem to be a problem with how I'm reading and writing to folders outside LÖVE (using PhysFS). It works for me on Windows 7. Can you try putting the program in the normal Programs folder?

@4vZEROv
Ah, I figured it out. I tried to access a folder before it got created. Doh! Fixed version will be up shortly.

Very nice work. Works great here. (Love 11.3, Fedora 32.)

I'm happy to take this to PM if you think it's a distraction here... but what is up with the source? It's not quite lua, and googling gloa in various combinations with lua is not enlightening me yet.

Ah, good that it works on Linux. :)

@hoistbypetard
Yeah, the program is the first "real" program written in Gloa which is my own language.
