I am very much a beginner when it comes to programming, but i've always enjoyed tracking and the demoscene.
I figured i would give pico8 a shot and try to create some of the classic demoscene effects (sinescrollers, rasterbar, starfields etc.) if possible. I thought i'd try with something (that i thought) would be simple like putting some text on
the screen that would move like a sinewave. But that was obviously a lot harder than i thought. So i was wondering if anyone had any tips or perhaps some simple codesnippets i could look at to get a basic understanding of it.
I know some basic programming but not enough to be able to download a cartridge here, look it over and understand exactly what it is that is making things move.
Thanks a lot in advance!
Thank you very much, exactly what i was looking for!
I now realize i should have searched for "sinus" and not only "sine"
Also, what is the best way to ask small questions regarding programming in pico8? i feel like there are so many simple things i would like to ask but don't
feel like cluttering up the entire BBS with such trivial things.
