I've been a fan of double pendulums for a while now, they're such fascinating mechanisms to watch play out and often act in exciting, unpredictable ways. So obviously, someone needed to make one of these bad boys for pico8 and since nobody seems to have done it yet I put this cartridge together.
For best results, I highly recommend opening up this cartridge for yourself and editing the various time and initiation values as these can have a huge affect on the pendulum behaviours as time goes on.
I'm a big dummy and don't claim to know how all these bits of complex mathematics all work together, the code available here is very similar to Micael Oliveira's double pendulum example found on physicssandbox.com
