Re: LÖVE and open/closed-source, hidden/not-hidden code

But as others have said, the visibility of your source code has little to do with this. If your source code is visible and a license is included the prohibits modification, redistribution, etc. then it is unlawful behavior to do so. Does anyone have experience with going through the enforcement of ...

Re: Source code protection

It should also note that if future versions of Love use LuaJIT 2.1, then the compiled versions for LuaJIT 2.0 won't work. Or at least there is no guarantee it will work. from LuaJIT's website: The generated bytecode is portable and can be loaded on any architecture that LuaJIT supports, independent ...

Re: LÖVE and open/closed-source, hidden/not-hidden code

It's a limiting idea to only allow Love to be used with open source games. It limits the author's freedom to decide how to distribute his work. The zlib license, I suspect, was chosen for this reason. The game player's freedom isn't an important issue, as they are not the user of Love; rather the ga...

Re: Source code protection

Alright, so after doing the luajit thing I got a luajit decompiler and tried it out. I have some new questions: 1) This pretty much offers no protection as far as I'm concerned. Is the luajit method the only and best one available? 2) Assuming the answer to 1 is true, what are other techniques that...

Re: Mouse problems

What does wait(2) do? I suspect it does something that it shouldn't (like sleep for 2 seconds?). It works perfectly fine in my test. Wait is called once and only once if you click within a y range of 65 to 98. local mon = true local selectedbutton = nil local gameplay = 0 local function wait(n) love...

Re: Strange fuzziness when animating sprite

LuaJIT will gladly inline math.floor into SSE instructions if it's in a hotloop, don't worry about its impact on performance.

Perfect!

It doesn't require OpenAL on your machine? :)

Re: Particles scattering

I have an idea, but I've never done it. You can apply a shader to a particle system. You could draw the area you computed to a texture and multiply it with the particles. Then any particles out side of the computed area would simply be not-visible, yes?

Re: Lua 5.3

I'll bet on a new GC within 5 years, but none of the big users of LuaJIT have any reason to add 5.3 support.
