This is for @huulong but will likely assist others.

There was some talk of not being able to export the LABEL of a Pico-8 cart.

That is the screen you record when you press the F7 key during its runtime.

Well it can be done with a bit of work.

These instructions are for the commercial version of Pico-8.

Load the cart you want to export the title screen and type the following in immmediate mode:

save flip

Then edit the FLIP.p8 in Notepad or some other convenient text editor.

Look for __gfx__ change that to __label__

Look lower in the code for __label__ change that to __gfx__

Save that code.

Bring back up Pico-8.

Now in immediate mode type:

load flip

You will see that the spritesheet now contains the title screen.

To export the title screen type:

export title.png

When all done you can delete the flip.png file.

If you found this helpful or have further questions, please let me know.

It seems that way, @merwok.

But then I was wondering why @huulong was having difficulty using it HERE:


Is why I mentioned the alternative method above.
