well, after having to reformat my computer a few weeks ago, i downgraded to ubuntu 10.04. making love 0.8.0 inaccessible as an unstable package. but i found today that 0.8.0 is stable, but it breaks the old games. Ortho Robot works fine so far, until it crashes on exit

Not Tetris 2, however, is completely broken and won't start at all

i'll take a look at ortho robot about the exit command and see if i can update it to Mari0's command to fix it. as for Not Tetris 2, that may take a while as i'm still a total noob to lua coding

the exit command just needs to change to love.event.quit() instead of love.event.push('q')

yeah, i got that after looking at the 2. Not Tetris 2, however pretty much needs to be updated, which would be a pain

love.physics{} was updated a lot so it would be a real pain. But worth it though

Translation: I don't want to spend time fixing my first game up so that 5% of users can play it again.

I was miles off. I must have miscounted the 'e's.

This will fix the broken require calls at the beginning, but not the problems with the physics module …

But I think the game can be rewritten with the new physics but the gameplay will be the same.

Sure! Probably, not much code has to be changed. I looked at the sources, but I don't have enough knowledge about Lua and esp. the Löve framework to see what exactly has to be done to make it work with 0.8.0. – so I hope, the author(s) of Not Tetris 2 will do that.

At least for Gentoo Linux, a solution would be to be able to install more than one version of the Löve framework. I requested this here: https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=416703 … let's see what happens ;-)

I'm pretty sure this was said before, but regardless:

Ortho Robot works after the basic 0.7.2->0.8.0 changes, while Not Tetris 2 requires a lot more work.
