Hello lovely PICO-8 people!

I'm getting started with PICO-8 and am having trouble running my game outside of the PICO-8 editor. Can anyone help?

If I open the game in splore, it causes PICO-8 to freeze. If I export the html and js files and run the HTML in Safari or Chrome, it gets stuck on "booting cartridge". Yet the .p8 file runs in the PICO-8 editor with no problem. I'm using the standard _init() / _update() / _draw() game loop.

I'm using:

  • PICO-8 v0.2.1
  • Atom to script
  • MacOS Mojave
  • Safari and Chrome

Game code: https://github.com/andrewhick/pandora/blob/main/pandora.p8
Game is hosted here: https://www.andrewhick.com/games/

I'd appreciate any help, one of my main reasons for choosing PICO-8 was its ability to share games easily on the web so I'm sad to be stuck at this stage!

Could you please try it with the newest Version 0.2.1B ? As I see on your hosted Page, the Game was exported with PICO8-Version 0.2.1 (without "B"). Could be a possible solution^^.

I've just tested your Cartridge; it doesn't work with Chrome on your hosted Site. However: I tried to export the File with the newest PICO8-Version to HTML, and it worked...

Hi @Astorek86, many thanks for the quick response, that's brilliant. Moving to v0.2.1B worked for me!

I've now updated the version hosted on https://www.andrewhick.com/games too. Much appreciated - I'll enjoy building the game a whole lot more now I know I can host it too :D

I just installed Pico 8 and tried running it on Windows 10 with the installer, but the EXE won't run. Is there something I'm missing? Am I not supposed to just run the EXE? https://speedtest.vet/ https://vidmate.bid/
