Opening files in zip files

Post by bartbes »

Is there a way I can open files that are in zip files? I already tried

Code: Select all

love.filesystem.include("some.zip/some.lua")
I guess this isn't implemented or documented? I don't know anything about PhysicsFS, except that it is used to read the love(/zip) files.

I don't get it. Why would you want that? When packaged, löve files are already zips...? I don't see any advantage to having zips inside the main zip, or in an unpacked löve dir. :?

In that case, I don't think it's possible at all (with PhysFS).
