I might be mistaken, but it seems like the special characters for buttons aren't working after upgrading to v0.19 of Pico-8.
Shift+LRUDOX all show just the regular characters. Did something change (the manually still says that is how to use them). Or maybe something is busted on my end. Can someone else confirm this is broken/working?
The alt-a..z combination isn't working in Windows and OSX. There is a fix coming in 0.1.9b.
Note that decimal escape codes are automatically converted when copying and pasting (I did this to avoid junk showing up in external editors or the BBS). So as an additional work-around, you can type the escape code, and then copy and paste it in-place.
Try pasting this into the editor. It should show up as the house icon:
here 's a decimal version, since there's not much love for hexadecimal around here ;)
I'll be honest, I don't know why I stuck to hexa. some kind of misplaced dandism maybe...
if you're into octal, just ask me :) (no idea if it's even parsed by lua)
zep, when you load a p8 in an external editor, the 'garbage' is still there. the whole thing is hackish, I'd say just ditch it all. once upon a time we made do with chr$() for extended chars, I think escape codes would be ok if you document them. (just my 2 cents)
