Oh god, triple posting. What the hell I'm doing.

Anyway, there we go. Another tech demo with tilemaps, basic collision and flashlights. Still using the ROL2 chars as placeholders. (Request if you want it shipped in a binary :))

Feedback is, as usual, welcome.

A binary would be nice, as I don't have any of the software to run .love files D:

You can download the software on http://love2d.org, it's only a standalone file you can drag the .love file on. I can always package the game for Win-x86 tho.

Woot, I like it!  I think you should implement some sort of framerate limitation though, since it's running way too fast for me lol XD

I think there's already a limitation at 60 FPS. Anyway, glad you liked ^_^

Really?  Because in the top left there is a framerate counter and it was going way over 400 FPS O.O

Oh? On both of my computers it never went higher than 60 FPS, as if there was a frame limiter. I guess it depends of your video card.

This looks great so far juju. A few suggestions, however:

-Make it so the character cannot stand this close to walls from the bottom of them. Maybe a few pixels below, so it's more realistic with the character width
-Do not use that Seiken Densetsu-style camera. Use Super Mario World's instead, which is inverted, so that you see more stuff in front of you, or you can make the character centered when possible. Otherwise it's hard to see what's ahead of you.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Yeah those stuff aren't finetuned yet, it's pretty much a work in progress. I agree the camera could be better. Thanks for the feedback though ^_^

I was able to reproduce the framerate problem at school, so this should cap the FPS at 60. Also press L to desactivate night mode.

Now on working on more cool features, such as the map editor and finding a way for the camera. (Also notice new subforum ^_^)

And there we go, it now uses the Tiled TMX tilemap file format :D

And some misc changes such as new character, grass changed to snow, etc.

You can always download the latest dev version on GitHub. (Tip: Download the zip and rename it to .love :P)

Next will be teleports and actions, which will be defined in the tmx file (and a supporting lua file for actions), then make decent maps.

ooh =D
the latest zip doesn't want to execute, for some reason, but the last demo you posted looks pretty great. i like the night effect quite a bit.

I'll have to try the current version soon. Also glad you found a map format with a map editor. No map editor makes it a major PITA to make maps (unless you use strings for map data like the original version of ROL0). :)

Yeah, with this one it's really easy to do pretty advanced rectangular or isometric maps.

Edit: Oh yeah I know what's wrong, GitHub puts everything in a folder then zip that folder instead of just putting all the files directly in the zip. You may want to unzip it, then rezip it correctly so the main.lua file is in the root.
