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.

kind regards

Your custom console or controller will need a 'Start' button, just like all console controllers have. Start will bring up the pause menu, which is where you can get to Splore.

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.

Tab is just a regular button on controller 2, not a special interface button. The tiny tv carts just use it as a convenience if the tiny game doesn't need the second controller.
