Re: Monitoring variable changes

I don't think you should worry about some print calls making the code bigger and messier. It certainly wouldn't increase the size of your code as much as monitoring variables. And of course you would remove them after you've found the bug. But I understand that sometimes print statements don't provi...

Re: [LD27] Triad

... I use Bandicam as well. The lack of compression in Fraps made it impossible to work with. From what I know, the game is capped to 60 FPS, due to V-Sync. My particular problem is that the Bandicam FPS counter would still show 60, and the video was definitely recording at 30, but LÖVE was evident...

Re: LovePunk - lövely framework (FlashPunk port)

No, there's no problem with it (that's the way I went with Ammo); in LÖVE it's better in many ways. More compatibility and more user choice.

Oh, so that's why angles move clockwise in LÖVE.

Re: Most frustrating moment?

My most frustrating moments with LÖVE have occurred with love.physics. Box2D can do some really weird stuff sometimes, things that can often only be fixed through trial and error.

It's a good habit to be in.

It's worth noting that you can use local variables in files as well, since files essentially operate the same as untitled functions.

Re: Why use local variables?

Ah, so for smaller projects it's not as noticeable, but it'll help in bigger programs more so? Thanks! It's hard to predict whether a "smaller" project will end up becoming a big one. And the bigger a project gets, the more noticeable the performance detriments, and more importantly, the ...

Re: LovePunk - lövely framework (FlashPunk port)

My Ammo framework (along with its extensions) is also based a lot on FlashPunk, although a lot of the details are different, largely due to LÖVE/Lua being a very different environment to Flash/AS3. I'm interested, did you opt to draw everything to a global canvas (like FlashPunk), or did you opt to ...

Re: [LD27] Triad

Wow, sweet. It's great to see others coming up with strategies different to what I came up with. I may link this in the Ludum Dare page for now.

How'd you manage to record it without massive performance issues? Or did you use a non-Windows operating system to do so?
