Sorry for these noob questions, but what exactly are Sprites? Heard that word being thrown around and still don’t know what they are. Also, what is github? And, how would I put a code someone types here, onto codea and simulate it. Thanks in advance.
Sprites are 2d images. The sprite function draws a 2d image on the screen. It is used for most any kind of game graphic.
Github is a code repository, which is an online place to store and share code. It also has a lot of cool features like versioning and branching that you will learn about as you become a more experienced coder.
To try someone elses code, you can make a new project in Codea and cut and paste the code in. You can also use a program called iExplorer to transfer Lua files from your computer to Codea. Try searching the Codea forums for “iExplorer” for more info.
@Vega thanks man, really appreciate it.
