i like to make a raspberry pi pico 8 console. is there a way to end a game and go back to splore with gamepad only? i can t find anything about this. cause the console will have no keyboard, so no esc button.
Yes, the "menu" or "pause" button, which is more precisely mapped to "enter" or "P" on keyboard is what you are looking for.
For controllers, it is mapped to "start" in SDL2 Gamepad API terms (which is based on the Xbox 360 controller layout) so exiting a splore game already works great with most controllers.
Assigning TAB to a key helps too, Some games taking advatage of the extra menu items (Like those 'tiny tvs') can be toggled with TAB instead of having to go in the menu at all. I THINK it maps to "BACK" via the xbox control standard but don't quote me on that.
