From the Forum – Issue #175

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

Building a Reversi-like game

Board games like Reversi (or as it’s trademarked Othello) are a common target for computer games, but how do you go about making one? The original poster was curious how to implement it in Corona. Long time Corona developer xnailbender jumped in and provided some board game handling code in the thread.

Going pixel-perfect

There are too many different devices to make pixel-perfect games but that didn’t stop Corona mega-developer Dave Bollinger from trying. He’s been publishing a developer blog and sharing it with the community in this forum thread.

Pseudo-global trick or not?

Code organization is important and breaking your code up into modules is a way to do so; however, it can become cumbersome to include a bunch of modules in each other. In this thread, several developers jumped in to offer suggestions on how to make this process more manageable.

Do you have a particular forum thread that was helpful for you? Let us know about it! Email, 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.
