I have been thinking about something: an easy way to apply simple lighting to games. I was thinking about creating an emtpy ImageData, and filling it with a dark color, with a low alpha value.

Re: Accessing Data from the conf.lua file

Actually, this would be the easiest, I think: conf.lua configTable = {} -- use any variable name function love.conf(t) t.screen.width = 800 t.screen.height = 600 t.title = "Test Window" configTable = t end main.lua function love.load() local screenWidth = configTable.screen.width -- access all of th...

Re: Accessing Data from the conf.lua file

You could also just declare global variables in the conf.lua files, I think. It is possible, though, that LÖVE does not run the two files with the same Lua_state.

Re: Jupiter - Save tables to files

Re: Storage - Save data to files
