[ANSWERED] A Question about Functions and Using Their Parameters

I've been thinking about the way I use variables in functions. Which is more efficient? #1 function fff(foo) -- use foo directly local something = foo + 3 end #2 function fff(foo) -- use a local variable for it local var = foo local something = var + 3 end This may have a case-to-case basis, but my ...

Re: Find 24: An Educational Math Game

Your "Info.plist" is more compact than what Love2D's Distribution Guide recommends. Do you natively build on a Mac?

You know it's getting serious when there's little room for the cringe-y jokes on the script (and yes, that's another objective observation).

Re: How to make a platformer [Youtube Tutorial]

Re: Labyrinth of Legendary Loot - turn-based roguelike released on itch.io

I love it! :awesome:

What makes it awesome is that it doesn't feel turn-based at all.

Re: Ice Slider - Released

Thanks! What you saw was a product of experience; Tutorials, coding struggles, getting as much info from these forums and wiki, etc. 1.
