Hi, for a game I'm working on, you can choose between two characters. But I dont have enough space to store the two characters in the same cart. I was thinking about releasing two carts, each one with a character.
The issue is that a given thread in the BBS only show the most recent cart in the "splore" of Pico 8.
Do I need to make two separate threads then ? Or is there a way to show or choose what cart is shown in splore ?
I could also try a multiple cartridge thing, like with a main cart with a selection menu, and two cart for the characters. But I dont think it work in web player or in splore. You would need to download the 3 carts manualy.
Is there a better idea than two separate threads ?
The plan is to treat multiple cartridges in the same post as different versions of the same cart, but it will instead be possible to put each cart in a separate post (within one thread) and have them show up in splore. It should be working by the time you post the two carts!
(also, I look forward to seeing if can scrunch whatever you post into a single cart, for sport)
Thanks for the reply, I'm not sure I understand what I would do to submit my carts. It will be great to see versions in xplore anyway.
But I will face the challenge you stated, and try to make everything fit in a single cartridge. It's a bit difficult as my data are mainly vertex and index buffers, so not realy much to compress. So I started using "strip" index meshes and I should get back a lot of space.
Ok, I managed to pack everything together so I will release a single cartridge. It only tock me 2 days of work ^^.
But now a least I have some room left to put sounds.
The solution realy was in using strip index buffer, it's about half the size.
Here is my character selection screen :
