What am I missing? I see he jumps into coding and gives commands in the integrated vscode terminal but never explained anything about installing packages for the environment? I tried installing Love 2D with no help on how to run it. On Windows I set path but (for example) in birds0 he runs love . and his background and ground are rendered. I can't get there. Pwsh does not recognize love as cmdlet or executable. I tried running from the install location referring back to repo location with zilch results. Now also trying to figure how to install lua. Are people working with a remote environment for the course? Sorry to ask such simplistic stupid questions off the bat.

Setting the path in the GUI environments variables for Windows was not automatically adding to the path. I had to reboot to take effect; but on a little more searching I found that from PowerShell with $env:Path += "Some path" it id immediately add to the path without having to reboot. I found that if a program was running (as I was using vscode and the integrated terminal), I simply had to close and restart the program. Then, I was able to run the love . command (from the installation of love 2D). Then, simply changing directory to make sure I was in the game folder, I ran (for example in the bird0 folder) love . and the code ran immediately rendering the background and ground for the game. I'm on the road now, starting from bird0 for the fifty-birds-master repo for the course on Github. Woohoo!
