So I got my hands on the Pico8Zine mag # 1 and I did the beginners Pong-like tutorial. Now I am trying to add on code to it. I was going to put a game over scroll when you lose.
So I download a few carts of other players/makers that had something like what I was looking for and I came upon
draw_text function - It's not in the PICO-8.txt - So where would I go to learn more about stuff like this that the editor can do? A straight Lua book or somewhere else?
Thanks in advance for your time,
draw_text function uh? Sounds like something I use in my carts... Anyway, if you did find it in one of my carts, just scroll down enough and you'll see the function is actually coded there. I'm basically using a lot of print() just to make my text look better.
Personally, all the functions I use in my carts are either from the manual or from the cart itself but you should find all the pico-8 functions here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3594143/yal.cc/r/picodoc/index.html
