I just purchased PICO-8 and would like to start using it. However, my ESC key does not seem to be working inside the PICO-8 application. Something similar happens for the newer versions of Minecraft, but I couldn't tell you why. Even across a different keyboard, this still happens.
I have a feeling this isn't going to be an easy fix, so if you want to add me on discord to help investigate this further, my account is Archonic#1070.
Superb find, @Archonic ! You know my ESC key gave out a couple of weeks ago cause I was trying out some RPG. I had left it running in the background when I went to code in Pico-8 and sure enough - it was locked out.
Glad you found the solution ! I would clearly contact APPLE on that little discrepancy.
I just want to record for anyone googling that disabling Siri (which fortunately I was not actually using anyway) also fixed the broken escape key for pico-8 v0.2.5g (released 2023) on my M1 macbook running macos 12.6.
This is probably properly a bug in pico-8 but I understand why fixing it from within a multi-platform graphics app may not be easy.
