Re: Love2D to switch

I really wish Nintendo would get rid of those NDAs, I wonder what their motivations are because to me this seems counter productive. Nintendo doesn't always make the most sound decisions so it might just be because they're used to it. It's a quality thing. Nintendo would rather release a few, high ...

Re: What is your advice for saving game state?

I put all my saveable data into one table, and used a library called table_save to save and load it. It works fine, but could easily be swapped out for some other system if I wanted more security or whatever. My inventory and level state data are in sub-tables inside the main savedata table.
