From the Forum – Issue #160

Sign in to follow this  


Forum iconWelcome to this week’s From the Forum. In this post, we highlight a few Corona Community Forums posts that cover important topics.

Tracking velocity

Games usually include objects that move. Knowing when they hit something is a common event to track, but another thing you might want to react to is when an object stops. In this thread, a couple of developers address this matter.

Controlling the console log fonts (macOS)

Maybe you have a really large monitor and the text of the Corona console is a bit on the small side. Wouldn’t it be nice to adjust that or even make your own theme for the console window? In the Corona Simulator for macOS, you can do just that — jump to this thread to learn how!

Target in range?

In this post, the question was posed how to trigger an action when an object is in range of another. In Corona, many people use physics sensors for this, but there are other ways to take action when two objects occupy the same space. This thread includes some alternate thought processes on the issue.

Do you have a particular forum thread that was helpful for you? Let us know about it! Email support@coronalabs.com, put FTF: and the forum title in the subject, and include the URL in the email. We will consider adding it to an upcoming edition of From the Forum.
