Trouble with screenshots

Hi all, I was working on a sample state machine / crappy game demo as a followup to this post of mine. I decided to use a screenshot for fun to make some transition effects, and it seems like Love is refusing to make more than 1 screenshot. It either crashes (if I release the old screenshot) or it s...

Re: Efficiently drawing a grid map

I thought sprite batching became automatic in Love a few versions ago? Am I mistaken about what that meant? I mention that later on. https://love2d.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p=240186#p240186 Manual batching is still available. As I mention in that post, I'm not sure whether it improves performance o...

Re: If statement and Goto

If I have three states: LevelOne, LevelTwo and Pause, then I need to return from pause to first and second level, isn't that? Or Menu with submenues. Each level shouldn't need it's own state. The states should be more like MainMenu & PlayingGame, and maybe LevelLoad too. Anything that functions...

Re: about Lua and games

See the Games & Creations thread: https://love2d.org/forums/viewforum.php?f=14 Look for anything with an attachment or a link. You'll find code snipets, full games (.love files), etc. Keep in mind that a .love file is just a renamed .zip file - you can unzip it to see all the files & code. A...

Re: If statement and Goto

Here's a sample game state system I just whipped up. I've not done this before, so I don't promise it's correct, but I think it's solid. The only thing I don't like about is all the string repetition. It would be better to define the strings in one table and then set player.string to that. (Which wo...

Love2D isn't a game itself. It's framework for games. You still have to supply the .love game file. Once you have that, don't run Love2D itself - run the .love instead.

Re: Multidimentional arrays/Tables

You can also use the # prefix to get the size of a table Note though that it only counts the elements from index 1 up until the first nil. Not on my system. local test = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} print(#test) -- 5 test[3] = nil print(#test) -- 5 print() for i = 1, #test do print(i, test[i]) end The output of...

Re: my love2d is broken

Sounds like you've got a bad install or something corrupted in your OS. Try this: 1. Uninstall Love2D 2. Reboot 3. Download a fresh installer and re-install Love2D Let us know if that doesn't work. EDIT - What's changed since the last time it worked properly? Or is this a new install? Could also be ...
