Question: is there an official specification of ... I guess it might be called PICO-8 extended ASCII? The characters from 32 to 126 are recognizably standard ASCII with lowercase and uppercase letters reversed, but I'm wondering what the rest of the characters officially mean.

Current ones can be copied and have corresponding emojis, although some are a stretch like ✽ (snowflake) is
. 18-31 appear to be general ui stuff.

Most of the new ones are Japanese Hiragana (155-255), although I'm kind of excited to find novel ways to use them.

Ahh, that's a good point! Thank you!

Oh, re: new ones: I think there's a small bug in the OP cart: Lua arrays start at 1, but the initial value of i is 0.

The sprite sheet start at 0 so I found this easier to at a glance find out which number corresponded with which letter.

damnit, I meant sub() starts with 1

to start with the first character (the \0) in the upper left corner, line 5 needs to say "i=1", not "i=0"

I swear something is wrong with the Splore version of the cart... I lloked into the code since it wasn't printing the chars on the new version, and everything was commented out except for the following:


I'm not even familiar with the scoresub() function...

The character set (repertoire) is called P8SCII!

uploaded a fixed version, now using the newer function chr.

was probably testing scoresub. scoresub is supposedly going to be the multiplayer function, but it does nothing right now. will upload a new version since I never found a way to delete carts and splore always uses the most recent.
