I'm making a cursor-based game.
I notice that when playing in the browser, the user's cursor is still shown.
But in the desktop, it's hidden.
Is there a way of detecting whether we're running in the browser or on the desktop? So I can decide whether to show a custom cursor or not?
(Or alternatively, is there a way of hiding the default hardware cursor when playing in browser?)
it's always been puzzling to me that the "devkit" mouse even functions in an HTML export, which is obviously not a "devkit" since it has no editor tools...
Mouse support is not official. I think it should either go away from the bbs or become standard. In any case it should be FIXED where available: it doesn't work in fullscreen, and hardware cursor should be hidden.
The way I see it, "core" pico-8 for BBS but anything goes for devkit or exports (including a way to lock the pointer for mouse deltas).
but of course the keyboard is lurking in the dark, waiting for mouse support to become official...

that sounds like a pretty good compromise to me. if devkit mouse was unimplemented on the BBS it would have the benefit of preventing the frustration/inconsistency of running into a cart on SPLORE which requires a mouse, when the rest of SPLORE is 100% controllable with a gamepad...not so fun when I'm sitting on my couch with a wireless gamepad and literally no other input device within reach ;)
