From the Forum – Issue #181
Welcome to this week’s From the Forum. In this post, we highlight a few Corona Community Forums posts that cover important topics.
Corona community developer extraordinaire @roaminggamer, posed an interesting but simple question in the forums: “Do you use a game module?” Asking about how you organize your code. This active thread covers how many of our experienced developers handle placing their game code in their projects. It’s well worth the read!
While there are efficiencies in using sprite sheets (or image sheets), do you have to use them? Not always. This thread jumps into circumstances about when you need them and when you don’t.
And when to use them. This thread originates around the question of how to get a ship to fire a laser continuously. How do you get the event listener to make that effect possible? Learn more from our community developers!
Do you have a particular forum thread that was helpful for you? Let us know about it! Email firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
