I have finally finished the basic version of my tower defense game. I was wondering if anyone would like to test it? What is the best way to get a test copy out?
Either gist, DM, installers (my personal fav), or just posting the code on the forums
I like the idea of an installer. Are there any examples on how to create one? I thought about posting the code but it is way to many tabs and lines.
Just post your code to pastebin, get the link to the RAW code, and insert the link in this:
supportedOrientations(LANDSCAPE_ANY) displayMode(FULLSCREEN) function setup() http.request("http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=qymVPREM", function(d) loadstring(d)() setup() end, function(e) print(e) end ) end
If your code can fit on the forums, you can press and hold the project icon and hit copy and then just paste the code in the forums.
I just use github and paste a link to the code
If you’re using Codea’s own browser to look at the forum, then the very handy “COPY” button also appears when you click through to the Raw page of a github or a gist (90% of the time. Sometimes it’s mysteriously absent, or, it’s very small and in the top left corner and you need to zoom in. Dunno why. Most of the time it’s in the usual place, top right).
So +1 for placing the entire project (in “paste into project” format) in a single file on GitHub. Plus you also then get access to version control.
