Re: sock.lua - A simple networking library for LÖVE

I have some suggestions. Maybe a simpler way would be to just make a guess of how long it will take. You could perhaps calculate a guess based on ping and file size. If you are sending percentage updates from the server, ensure that is sent over a different channel than the file data or the progress...

Re: sock.lua - A simple networking library for LÖVE

Re: I made some fireworks

Thanks, I like it too :) The only shaders used are a bloom shader and another for the white "stripes" on the rockets. The fireworks were made by spawning a bunch of particles with randomized direction and speed, all affected by gravity. Each particle records its position and time each frame and then...

Re: UDP hole punching

@Fenrir, I just wanted to mention that you can get the public IP in lua-enet using tostring(peer) Also thank you for the information. @jack, if you could forward messages via the server it would work, and a single server would be enough to handle many sessions at once (if the messages are infrequent).
