This thing is fantastic! I didn't use the particle system before because it was a little hard for me to visualize but this is an excellent way to prototype new effects quickly. I might be able to utilize this for my current project.

Thanks!
I went ahead and just fixed the breaking errors. ParticleSystem:setSize is now ParticleSystem:setSizes and ParticleSystem:setColor is now ParticleSystem:setColors. The new functions take in as many params as you want but I just wired them up to only adjust the 2 sets in the original editor. If I find a need for my purposes I might add the ability for to add any number of colors and sizes to this editor.

Enjoy.

Hi, everyone! I was searching and testing stuff while learning, because I started last Saturday with this amazing engine, and was trying to learn something about particles (because I really love how particles improve the visual of a 2D game).

I reached this thread but discovered that the last updated version did not work with LÖVE 0.9.0 so I took the liberty, while inspecting the code and hopefully learn something, to update it.

Thanks to Mud (the original author) and Halt_and_Catch_Fire (version 0.8.0) for their work on this.

I did not altered the love.author info.

You open the .love file with winrar or another zip program and then you open the files that are inside with any text editing softwere

Thanks again for the fantastic tool. Might be other bugs, but it at least starts now.

- in main.lua, changed line 73 from 'additive' to 'add' to work with love 11
- in main.lua changed line 123 from "mouse.isdown '1'" to "love.mouse.isdown == 1" to work with love 11
Currently working on something Love2D could really use. Shhh.
