I was looking around to see if I could use the notifications that pop-up in my game.
I was unable to find anything.
Example: "high scores cleared", "game saved", ...
Does anyone know if this is achievable? And do you care to share? :)

thanks in advance

hello! pico-8 only gives us basic functions to draw pixels, lines, circles, rectangles and sprites on screen. if a game wants to pop-up a little rectangle with text, the developer has to write the code to do that!

do you have a game in development? if not, I suggest following tutorials to get the basics, then you will be able to program this!
if you already know the basics, then we can discuss more to help you do what you want to do!

Hi, I do have a game in dev. I know how to code it but I was just wondering if it was possible to use the console pop-up to save some tokens :)
Thanks for your response.

PICO-8 has a few system pop-up messages that animate in from the bottom of the screen, such as when taking a screenshot. This mechanism isn't available to programs as a feature. It appears directly on the screen, so a program could do its own thing to replicate it, but yeah it would be coded from scratch.
