Issue #529 invalid

No-game screen should give (brief) instructions

created an issue

In the last 2 weeks we've had 3 different people asking "I installed and run LÖVE but I can only see the rubber piggie, what do I do?"

For the next version of LÖVE, I recommend adding a small text explaining what is happening somewhere in the no-game screen.

It doesn't have to be big or extensive. I propose this:

Hello! This is LÖVE's "no-game" screen. You are seeing it because LÖVE could not find a game. See https://love2d.org/wiki/Getting_Started for details.

    I agree, we just had another guy asking the same thing on the IRC channel.

    What I think would be useful is to actually display the reason why LÖVE couldn't find a game (invalid path, not a valid archive, ...).

    The exception to this would be when LÖVE is run without arguments.
