i made this for this upcoming jam: https://itch.io/jam/lowrezjam2016

made this so its easy to get to work on a low resolution project, dynamically scales for window mode.
hope anyone else can use this, and maybe wants to join in on that game jam.

    maid64(64)

    --loading test sprite
    maid = love.graphics.newImage("maid64.png")
    --setting the test sprite's filter so it wont do any anti-aliasing

I saw this jam on twitter a few hours ago - this might be a nifty library to use! Thanks!

pixelated font, hopfully its readeble (have to test it still)

Set minwidth=64, minheight=64 in main.lua:5 for the real deal. :)

Looking forward to #lowrezjam!

EDIT:

I combined maid64 and love3d. It kind of works...

Skipped the letter 'N', other than that, it works

whoops, il try and fix that, im not to happy about it and will probebly change.

maybe something not to well explained is the init parameter you can change, for example if you like the pico8 resolution:

Code: Select all

--initilizing maid64 for 128x128
    maid64(128)

not sure if i should add a shader selection to maid64, any ideas or sugestions?

made a cga mode and some others just to try it out, never done anything like this

Code: Select all

mode  = {
    [[  // mode 1 - CGA mode
        vec4 effect( vec4 color, Image texture, vec2 texture_coords, vec2 screen_coords )
        {
            vec4 texcolor = Texel(texture, texture_coords);
            vec4 col = step(0.5,texcolor);
            if(col == vec4(1.,1.,1.,1.)) return col * color;
            if(col == vec4(0.,0.,0.,1.)) return col * color;
            if(col.r == 1.0) col = vec4(1.,0.,1.,col.a);
            if(col.r == 0.) col = vec4(0.,1.,1.,col.a);
            return col * color;
        }
    ]]
    ,
    [[ // mode 2 - prime color mode
        vec4 effect( vec4 color, Image texture, vec2 texture_coords, vec2 screen_coords )
        {
            vec4 texcolor = Texel(texture, texture_coords);
            return step(0.5,texcolor) * color;
        }
    ]]
    ,
    [[ // mode 3 - 8bit color mode?
        vec4 effect( vec4 color, Image texture, vec2 texture_coords, vec2 screen_coords )
        {
            vec4 texcolor = Texel(texture, texture_coords);
            return  ((step(0.25,texcolor)+step(0.75,texcolor))/2)* color;
        }
    ]]
    }

    shader = love.graphics.newShader(mode[1])
    love.graphics.setShader(shader)

this is really great and showed up exactly when i started having problems with my resolutions.

I fiddled around with your implementation and got rid of maid64_draw since i wanted to use states. now everything occurs in love.draw() again. Also i changed it so now all the functions fall under the maid64 variable. this means that all of the function calls are maid64.something which makes it feel more like a library. I wont bother uploading a .love since this is functionally the same .

main.lua

Code: Select all

require "maid64"

function love.load()
    love.window.setMode(640, 640, {resizable=true, vsync=false, minwidth=200, minheight=200})
    
   maid64.setup(64)--This has been changed from maid64 it just looks nicer idk
    
    maid = love.graphics.newImage("maid64.png")
    maid:setFilter("nearest","nearest")

    rotate = 0
   
end
function love.update(dt)
    rotate = rotate + dt
end
function love.draw()
    --now all of your drawing occurs in love.draw
    maid64.start()--starts the maid64 process

    --all of your drawing goop goes in the middle
    love.graphics.draw(maid,32,32,rotate,1,1,32,32)
    
    maid64.finish()--finishes
end

function love.resize(w, h)-- i moved this to main.lua since i like having all the base love. functions in here
	maid64.resize(w, h)
end
maid64.lua

Code: Select all

maid64 = {}--I declare maid64 up here. Its a global anyway so this is better practice than in in a function
function maid64.setup(pixels)-- maid64 is now maid64.setup
    maid64.size = pixels or 64
    maid64.scaler = love.graphics.getHeight() / maid64.size
    maid64.x = love.graphics.getWidth()/2-(maid64.scaler*(maid64.size/2))
    maid64.y = love.graphics.getHeight()/2-(maid64.scaler*(maid64.size/2))
    maid64.canvas = love.graphics.newCanvas(maid64.size, maid64.size)
    maid64.canvas:setFilter("nearest","nearest")
end

maid64.start = function ()--part of maid64_draw is now maid64.start
   	love.graphics.setCanvas(maid64.canvas)
   	love.graphics.clear()
    end
maid64.finish = function () --The other half of maid64_draw is now maid64.finish
    	love.graphics.setCanvas()
    	love.graphics.draw(maid64.canvas, maid64.x,maid64.y,0,maid64.scaler,maid64.scaler)
end

function maid64.resize(w, h)-- this is a function for neatnesses sake
    if h < w then
        maid64.scaler = h / maid64.size
    else
        maid64.scaler = w / maid64.size
    end
    maid64.x = w/2-(maid64.scaler*(maid64.size/2))
    maid64.y = h/2-(maid64.scaler*(maid64.size/2))
end

Another jam this system would be great for! https://itch.io/jam/bit-jam
