Re: What's everyone working on? (tigsource inspired)

I wrote a terrain generator quickly, based on the diamond square algorithm. It came out pretty well, I think. It looks like a Tycho album art generator.

Re: Fractal Explorer

I uploaded a new version, it might fix the problem. I don't really have any way of testing on 0.10.1. If it doesn't work, then I'll just say this requires 0.10.2.

Fractal Explorer

This is just a small project I've been working on for a while. It can render the Julia set and Mandelbrot set with smooth coloring. It supports something like 100,000x zoom (that's as far as a float will get you). These are some pictures I've taken from it: http://i.imgur.com/zNJ4dX6.png http://i.im...

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

- I think logging all events is a bit much. Typically I changed it to just log errors and warnings because otherwise in usage it can bloat memory usage. I'm guessing the current implementation is just a stop-gap until it writes logs once they reach a certain length, but it feels a bit like a "gotch...

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

I just updated the library to version 0.2.0. It adds custom serialization support and changes "emit" functions to "send". I also updated the documentation styles.

You can check out the changes here https://github.com/camchenry/sock.lua/wiki#020.

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

This library is not dead, but it has been a while since I pushed any updates to the master branch. There is a WIP update that adds custom serialization support that is in the "serialization" branch. There may also need to be some naming changes in the next version ("send" or "emit"?). As far as I kn...

Re: On the topic of tutorials

There has been some talk about it on the IRC. The tutorials need to be more organized and many of them just need to be completely rewritten. Zorg and I are working on a manual for audio to explain the most common functionality, like managing sounds, cloning sounds, and sound effects. If you want to ...

Re: How can you get the current OS time?

os.date, or os.time, depending on what you need. https://www.lua.org/pil/22.1.html os.time() => 1476852730 -- seconds since epoch os.date("%X", os.time()) => 00:50:02 os.date("%c", os.time()) => "Wed Oct 19 00:50:02 2016" Edit: I don't know if these are cross-platform, but I haven't encountered any ...

Re: sone - sound processing library for LÖVE

Ikroth, how important is the state that sone's filters calculate at the beginning? Is it alright to re-calculate this on the fly, per-sample, for dynamically changing inputs? I'm doing this now, and it sounds alright to me, but I want to make sure. I don't think there should be any issues with it, ...
