First of all, the praise, a BIG praise, your TIC-80 is amazing, well done :) The bug(?) happens when I try the demos with the 64 bit linux version (I use Ubuntu Mate 16.04.2 64-bit) of the editor. It acts like the up and left arrows are always pressed, it is very strange because the others carts run just fine. Other than that, thanks for your work, I hope you sincerely the best and long live TIC-80!


I created an issue, will try to fix it

Thank you for the appreciation and the bug report :)

Thank you for TIC! See you :)


Could you pls test the bug on the latest .19 version, because I cannot reproduce it.


It seems it's gone away... well, all is fine :) Ps: in the android editor, when I have a lot of lines of code I can't scroll up nor down, it keeps selecting a block of code if I swipe, can be resolved somehow? Thank you!

Tic does not support touch scrolling, you have to use the arrows with your keyboard to move around. I recommend using hacker's keyboard.


So, I closed the issue then.

As for scrolling on Android I'm thinking how to do it better, I can scroll the code editor on touch events and select only with mouse cursor events, or I can add toolbar button to switch mode scroll/select on mobile devices...

Well, I'd like to have the toolbar button, which one is easier for you? Anyway, until then I will use hacker's keyboard, thanks for the replies.

One reason keys may be permanently pressed may be if you're holding them down when you unfocus the window, that is sometimes an issue on some platforms.

Could it be, anyway it disappeared with the 0.20 somehow, so it's okay


And some more praise: I can't thank u enough for making tic-80! Anyone following the progress of tic, knows Nesbox is also a very active dev that replies quickly and responds to suggestions. Each update also has many great new additions and improvements!

You deserve the highest praise. Not just for the end result, but for passion and dedication to your work. It is truly inspiring to watch this project develop!


Thank you man :)
