Re: Why does this freeze Love?

I see. I was modifying it so I could pause everything except the draw functions.
But now I see that if I had everything in the update function and simply paused love.update it does the same thing! :crazy:

Re: Why does this freeze Love?

Any reason you're redefining love.run? I don't know! I'm new to love, can you explain what the benefits are of redefining it and not redefining it? The problem is probably that you're not processing any events. Well that wasn't my entire code! I was processing events lol. But what's wrong with the ...

Re: Random numbers in Love

Okay, thanks. Yeah, that's what I meant by offset it by the time. ^^

Random numbers in Love

To get a random number in Love, should I just use:

Code: Select all

math.random()
offset by the time on the computer or something, or does Love has it's own, better, function for getting a random number?

Re: nlove (LÖVE 0.7.0) beta for Caanoo Handheld

I've been thinking about buying a gp2x or some other programming handheld for a while now. I hadn't heard of the caanoo before, but it looks pretty good. Now that I'm programming with love, and it's working with this handheld, I might consider getting one of these. What other handhelds does love wor...
