I have enhanced the Pico-8 cheat sheet based on the PDF version.
I included more info which I find useful.
This version fits best on a 1080p screen (or closer aspect ratio),
while the pdf version fits best on an A4/letter size paper.
revision: PICO-8 0.1.11g (rev:M)
fixed: shl, shr, for loops, character limit
added: p/enter, folder, mkdir, peek4, poke4, lshr, ceil, shrink code category, coroutine category, indent selection, cartdata category
enhanced: colors for visual clarity, screen coordinate, rearrange layout
removed: dark theme
revision v0.9.7: (PICO-8 version 1.11d)
fix: fullscreen shortcut: alt enter/F11
revision v0.9.6: (PICO-8 version 1.11d)
added: import, export, !=, tostr(), tonum()
modified: sfx(), fullscreen shortcut
enhanced: dark theme, music keyboard layout
revision v0.9.5: (PICO-8 version 1.10c)
Commandline: shutdown, reboot
Sprites: sget, sset
Loops: repeat, while
RAM memory layout and manipulation
Sprite flag: fget, fset
String manipulation: length, sub, cast, concatenation

Rearranged more important stuff to the side, less important at the center
Made cheat sheet bottom taskbar proof when set as wallpaper
Rearranged Math by category for easier lookup
Changed colors on graphics for better clarity
pal() to change palette color
palt() to change transparent color
add url to https://neko250.github.io/pico8-api/
fixed a typo on table literals
This is how I normally use this cheatsheet:
- set as wallpaper
- PICO-8 in window mode
It has been so long, I used to have "cheat sheets" I think may have come with some old compilers (software in boxes was so long ago!). Or maybe from some books? (books in stores at malls was so long ago!)
I've been trying to force feed pico-8.txt to my kids "look at the text, spend some time reading the text" but this is what they really need! I'm going to run it off on A4 and laminate it at Kinkos! hehehe great work and thanks very kindly!
The cheatsheet is updated again. Yay!
Cool suggestion, which part of that that you think would be nice to add? ram layout or memory manipulation, can only add few more since space is limited
edit: I fit both in for v 0.9.5 :D
Don't print it yet, I'm still adding more stuff today and tomorrow. But making it a desktop wallpaper is highly recommended.
Ooh, good idea @imprimis
Was thinking the same thing every time I wake my laptop and got blinded!
Perhaps LightBWK could incorporate this/similar dark theme with the next update? :D
(along with refreshing the music "keyboard" to the latest version on API site)
I believe it is this one.
Thanks! I took your version and retyped/redrew it in Photoshop for my Thinkpad X230's native resolution of 1366x768.
Let me know if any of you would like the PSD document.
Edit: Oh and I made it with a space for a right side taskbar in Windows 10.
When/if you great people make a new version of your cheatsheets for the next release or 1.0, I would love to have a new section for the character set! (like a table with the custom glyphs, the keyboard shortcut and the bytes/character code).
(edit) I have edited my file to paste this simple list of characters-glyphs:
(would need different colors, size and heading to be properly integrated!)
Also note this post that also shows the fill patterns corresponding to each glyph: https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?pid=73223

here's a version I made a while ago with the button layout tweaked to try to match the mobile overlay and KEYCONFIG:
it's not perfect but I just needed something to show at a little career fair booth I did where I showed some kids what PICO-8 was, and the button layout was bugging me so I changed it :)
Hello everyone, I've wanted to have pico-8 with me wherever that may be, but I didn't want to install anything on which ever PC I happened to be on. So I've gone ahead and set up a VPS running Linux which I can access via a browser using VNC. All I've installed on that server is pico-8 and Chrome.
Yeah it's not really ideal for playing games but its fine while you're tinkering with a game engine. I've made it so I can export games as html and then play them directly via the browser as well, when and if I want to actually play the games properly.
Anyway I wanted a wallpaper that matched the XFCE theme I was using, so slightly edited the version imprimis made a while back.
and just for those interested, this is how it looks as part of my desktop setup
@ChrisM - great GitHub cheatsheet page. I also like your website ;) and our names are very similar... thanks for the low contrast version. I personally like using the I3 window manager, you should check it out if your into terminal based stuff but in a GUI. And if you want to go hardcore terminal, check out byobu / screen, a tiling terminal window manager.
Hi @dfilskov. To save your game data take a look at the following commands:
