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!

Came to ask same question about using a dice, or having to make it. I'm good with cutting it out :)

Thanks for the question, and the answer!

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.


Thanks!

Thanks everyone, I'll check out BASin :)

I'm interested in joining this jam, but I have no experience with ZX Spectrum Basic :)

I have done some things in pico-8, and work full time as a javascript developer so these things should help me out.. but I have so much to learn, and that part is exciting. :D 
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.


Thanks!

UGHHHHHH I LOVE THIS.

I'll be out of town tho.. I realized that after I posted :(

At least it's vegas 8)

maybe ill throw something together still :D

Hoping to have time to join in on this. :)

How are the ideas assigned/selected? Is there a list I can check out?

Thanks!

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

mygame/_main.lua

@import "foo"
@import "bar"
print("hello from _main.lua!")

mygame/foo.lua

print("hello from foo.lua!")

mygame/bar.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

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.

The tool is written in nodejs (since im a javascript developer by trade) so you will need that to run.


Let me know if I've totally reinvented the wheel on this, or if you guys are interested in helping me test/distribute this :)


Thanks

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?

This is really fun, nice work!

Not at all worried about getting votes, but do want to share!
