Ha! Thanks Jupiter :D
I've made some adjustments to make it a little more fast paced. Was really fun watching you work out the concept for sure.
Your series is such a great idea, definitely inspires me to keep posting stuff I'm working on!
Towerfall! Nice work on this! I've been looking around for a good place to start with platform controls -- what you have here is done really well. Any chance you can post the p8 file? Hoping to learn from it.
I'm interested in joining this jam, but I have no experience with ZX Spectrum Basic :)
I spend a lot of time writing stuff in qbasic way back, so I'm sure to have an overwhelming amount of nostalgia power me through.
Should I spend time experimenting with something like this: https://www.worldofspectrum.or...
or does that go against the spirit of the code jam? I'll certainly be tinkering with straight up basic, but wondering if an "engine" is more or less cheating for this event.
I've thrown together a tool that lets me build pico-8 games using multiple files, and include them with an @import "something" syntax.
Wanted to share this with folks here, but after I built it I thought to myself.. what if its is baked in and I just missed it? :O
Heres what this tool allows for:
Inside my carts folder I have a folder called apps, with a folder for each project
The folder structure for mygame, and code is as follows
@import "foo" @import "bar" print("hello from _main.lua!")
print("hello from foo.lua!")
print("hello from bar.lua!")
The tool replaces any @import statement with the contents of the file mentioned.
It watches for changes across any file in the mygame directory
replaces the __lua__ portion of the mygame.p8 file with the resulting code, and rebuilds mygame.p8
print("hello from foo.lua!") print("hello from bar.lua!") print("hello from _main.lua!")
You still use the sprite, map, sfx, and music tabs of PICO-8, but you have to forfeit the code tab and use an external editor. I use Sublime Text 3.
Let me know if I've totally reinvented the wheel on this, or if you guys are interested in helping me test/distribute this :)
Awesome, I've submitted it as of now :)
I'm seeing a lot of other folks projects getting updates, I too am updating my entry. When are you shooting to bundle these? And is it within the rules to continue to work and keep updates flowing?
