Sorry guys, this is not a game but it is still a quest.

Unicode if you are not familiar with is the very huge character set you have available to print in most messages including some text editors. Here are a few familiar examples.

😀 ✌️ ❤️

My question is, is there a way to write any Pico-8 code where for instance you could have a unicode character such as this, "⭐" created in the code and then transferred to the clipboard where you could PASTE it in a regular message either online or in a text editor ?

-- only works with pico8 glyphs
printh("❎🐱⬇️","@clip")

pico8 is not unicode (it is under the hood, namely to handle transfer of glyphs back & forth) - so anything above 256 is not correctly handled.

Yeah, that's I was thinking this too, @freds72. Especially when you consider the Katakana characters after and including chr(154) do NOT come back as true ASCII but unique unicodes themselves.

Now I could write something in Blitz to compensate for this, converting Pico-8 "ASCII" unicodes to true 0-255 characters, yet I want this to work for Pico-8.

And as Pico-8 has a unique unicode for the characters and in fact is not true ASCII - well, that's why I asked - to see if someone knew of a way to do it.
