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

I'm challenging myself in creating an item generator.

Right now I'm creating 'templates' aka functions with a lot of love.graphics.print() functions.

I wanted to use string interpolation but all that did was made me confused and I wasn't sure how I would set the position of things and it was overall confusing for me.

Got the basic layout for a weapon.

Though I still haven't perfected on the resizing when some stuff isn't included.

Great. Keep up the good job.

Well, try my Allen. Or at least, rip the function you need (see line 263)

Code: Select all

function _.substitute(str,value) return (str:gsub('%${*([%w]+)}*',value)) end --Example print(_.subtitute('value =${value}',100))

So if I wanted to run love.graphics.setColor() to change the color of specific text. How would I go about doing that?

Look, that's the an old text problem/dilemma in LOVE. Preserve string vs divided txt strings for each color. Best way is get a to implement some instring tags in you string and parse your text for coloring changes. Not easy and require some work. But not let stay off-topic here. Open a thread for it. Also search see Robin's Rich Text and litearc message dialog lib.

Oh in that case, as coffee said, Robin's richText is probably what you're looking for.

Yeah, that seems like a job for RichText. If you decide to use it, and you find a bug, please notify me, so I can fix it.

@KingRecycle: Where did you get that font? It looks wonderful.

Hi there,
So much impressive stuff from everyone!
Here's a screenshot of my first foray into LÖVE. (It's supposed to be pixel-doubled but I shrunk it so it doesn't take up too much space.)
