Re: Can you point me to a good, simple, up to date game example?

Have you looked through the Games & Creations board on the forum?

viewforum.php?f=14

It should have all sorts of examples, work in progress, and complete games.

Re: Barrack - A simple type checking library

I've noticed that after implementing this schema, things started to work properly considerably more often and a lot earlier in development than before I had it :P

Re: Barrack - A simple type checking library

I've also created a validation-type library, which also allows extensions and user defined types. It's a little more verbose as a result, but it might also be more powerful. Maybe it has something you can use? Feel free to scavenge whatever you want from it. I'm always a fan of tools that improve er...

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

Since I found that you can actually get some work done if you have to commute 2 hours by train/bus every day, I've jumped back into some löve because it's just that awesome. I'm currently working on a UI/rendering library, mostly because I found it to be a really interesting challenge and I wanted t...

Re: What's your Lua/Love setup ?

I use ZeroBrane studio for all my editing and running. Don't think I've changed any settings. It's quite nifty, although there seems to be a bug in the Ubuntu version, which crashes a lot when I switch project directories :(

Re: The Better GUI framework for Love

Do you have any special requirements for the library? Usually you pick a tool because it's good at what you aim to do with it :)

Get the current screen translation?

Is there any way to obtain the graphics system's current translation?

Ie;

Code: Select all

love.graphics.translate(10, 5)
love.graphics.translate(25, 3)

x, y = someWellHiddenMethod() -- should return 35, 8

Or will I have to track the changes myself?
