SpriteBatch

Using a single image, draw any number of identical copies of the image using a single call to love.graphics.draw(). This can be used, for example, to draw repeating copies of a single background image with high performance.

A SpriteBatch can be even more useful when the underlying image is a texture atlas (a single image file containing many independent images); by adding Quads to the batch, different sub-images from within the atlas can be drawn.

Constructors

love.graphics.newSpriteBatch Creates a new SpriteBatch.
