Hi. I was boring and I wanted to try do to stuff with LÖVE2D and Internet. After seeing how to (basically) use the socket.http, I came up with the idea of making a News shower that gets the data from Internet (like when we launch Minecraft)

So, here it is now :

It contains text shower, image displayer and click-able links (here the link of the picture)

Annnnd random backgrounds (they are 7 in total)

Plus did I said you can properly size and color the text :

I know it's not finished, but if you want to have something like this for your games/videos/whatever people wanna follow you, the basic version will be download-able soon (as well as my version ;-p).

For the data ? I don't have a preference, whatever that can be read from http.request() would be fine.
I am personally using pastebin.

Hope you spent amazing vacations and everything will be fine for you in 2015.

That's a first XP

This looks pretty sweet. It'd be cool if it launched .exe files. Will it? or is it just for display?

You mean the click-able links? If so, that's a good idea, but they will need to be downloaded every time, due to the way I made it. But don't worry, it will delete them right after

This is my 100th post. And it will be my 2nd signing in "birthday" in less than 200 days. \(^o^)/ And I will prepare you something that nobody ever saw in a Mari0 mod ... Yes I know, I give presents at my own "birthday".
