Re: Future features

I understand but I still think the external application is better solution. Let small applications do their work and do it best. I don't see any arguments :) Why exactly do you think it's a bad solution? BTW, anybody created already a small banner "Made with Löve" to be placed in games fo...

Re: Future features

If I could say my opinion, I'd say "I don't want it". I like it as it is as an interpreter. I can compress love directory to zip and sand it as a game to my friend. There are lots of nice game launchers for MAME. Everybody can make the same for Löve. If i's necessary please do it as an ex...

Re: Future features

Are you using DisneyOS? I've never come across this problem. True. This must be fixed. Will probably replace ESC at some point. It's planned. Unfortunately, it involves reloading all textures, so I haven't gotten around to it yet. Feel free to make suggestions as to how we should do this, but it wi...

Re: Future features

PopCap.. that's those fuckers who made millions of dollars off making games like Bejewled (and Bejewled 2, as if that concept needed more lens flares), right? Hey, why all this hatred??? PopCap are nice guys, they made their engine and source code freely available and if they make money - good for ...

Re: Future features

Oh, I got it. Even more clever. For my purposes I wrote a small class that loads fonts, created by PopCap utilities. Since their tool handles all the trouble of calculating widths and kerning pairs, loading is easy. And their tool is very flexible - it creates a raster image from vector fonts, insta...

Re: Future features

You have a bitmap, where one colour is specified as the colour separating two characters, so there's a line of that colour. So what about the quotation mark (")? :) Will it count as 2 characters? Plus there can be other characters, consisting of two and more parts... Otherwise - quite clever s...

Re: Future features

No, I meant using Windows fonts, like Tahoma, Verdana to draw text... About kerning pairs - well, to be short - each character in complex fonts has its own width. That's set of values A. Then, some characters change their position, based on combination with another character. That's set of values B....

Re: Future features

Oh, so this was your major contribution to the project! :) Users like me, who will spend countless hours trying to find your precious, hidden treasure-bugs will certainly appreciate your effort! Ah, little surprises... Keep it up! BTW, I guess you didn't use Windows fonts, right? Because of portabil...

Oh, I thought you were both equal "partners" here :)

Ok, let's wait for the Big Boss and see what he has to say...

Re: Future features

So, as I understand, you don't need any help with development?
