    So I´m learning lua atm but there´s one thing that keeps annoying me. Everytime I want to test the project I have to drag the complete folder over the love.exe. I know you can avoid that by inserting a .bat in the projects diretory, but for me it somehow don´t work.
    My .bat contains
    Code:
    @ECHO OFF
    
    start "" "%PROGRAMFILES(x86)%\LOVE\love.exe" 
    And when executing the .bat it even opens the love.exe but it´s just the default screen when there´s no game.

    any suggestions?

    You need to specify the path to the game as an argument.

    I'd suggest:

    Code:
    @echo off
    
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\LOVE\love.exe" --console "C:\path\to\game"
    This would work if "C:\path\to\game" contains main.lua (i.e., the directory containing your Love game).

    (You'll be able to see the result of print calls with the --console flag, since it seems possible you're not using an editor that supports debugging Lua programs. I suppose this is why you used "START"?)

    I'll test this tomorrow :)
    I just used start because it was made so at the tutorial I'm watching (there it works for whatever reason) and also on the official love2d wiki.

    Edit: Actually I tryed ASAP, at it works, thank you :)

    Well have anither problm actually: I want a ball get bounced off another rectagle, so a little pong-game, how do I that? Both objects are dynamic and when they collide the rectangle get bounced by the ball too. I tried to give the rectangle more weight, but that didn´t really solve it.

    How can I make a dynamic Object with a picture? I only manage to show a image up and move it and stuff, but it can go though walls because it´s no object :x
