hello all,

ive kept my eye on pico for a while now and thought i may as well give myself a present. i love that its minimal, i think more engines should learn from that - only give you what is truly needed. plus makes you try different things in different ways, so well done

on that, i was wondering about picos future. now firstly im not saying that we should be able to play pico games on xbox. whilst i think that would be cool, its too much ;)
but on that here are a few questions i have thought of in regards to what pico could end up with and really just questions of interest

• will [or can] pico be able to export out [linux/mac/win], so you could share with others without being online? - so they will be applications. i guess you could even then sell if they were really that good, i guess but not why im asking...
• minimal controller support - but only using the same amount of controls that is available with the keyboard
• can pico embed on your own sites?

there was 1 or 2 that i cant think of again. but just more of interest of wonder more than anything. but pico is lovely. great idea and i really think more engines need to learn from it

  1. We've been talking about something like that here.
  2. There's unofficial (yet recommended) support using this gamepad tool, just put the stuff generated from that into a file called "sdl_controllers.txt", which should be located in PICO-8's AppData.
  3. The Built-in HTML exporter could be used for a website, so that's covered.

My dumb-ish question is: Will online multiplayer support be added? :D

online player sounds good. though i guess would be harder since it would require more. unless there was some black magick involved ;)

thanks for those links, ill give them a look

ive seen that controller tool before though never used it. i use the once taggle bot one that is now being used on github

one thing that would be nice in the text editor, is since you can scroll with the mouse up and down. it would be good if you could scroll sideways as well

i guess as well that it would be good if you could have an option to show the source code in the embed. but as a choice when exporting
