I'm trying to get P8 to run in a window on my Linux Windows install on my Raspberry Pi, so I can have it and my editor up on the same desktop (like I do in real Windows). But by default, P8 runs fullscreen. I've tried launching it from terminal with the flags outlined in the docs and even by editing the config file, but none of that is working, it's still going fullscreen.
Anyone else tried to run it windowed on Linux (RPi)? ..and got it working? Or is all that windowed stuff for "real" Windows only.
i'm not even capable to open it in fullscreen from the terminal so ... after five sec of intense research understand i forgot the "NODE SLASH" before the pico8 in terminal but it change nothing about window if i add -windowed 1. Disapointed but not surpise. T_T
Just bumping this. Anyone else been able to run PICO-8 in windowed mode on a Raspberry Pi? Doing a workshop this weekend teaching kids gamedev with PICO-8 on Raspberry Pi and would be really nice to be able to have PICO-8 side-by-side with another window.
I'm using a Raspberry Pi 3B running the 2018-04-18 Raspbian Desktop release from the official site.
I haven't tried this but you might want to consider installing and using "xnest", which can open a new window within the current system.
So, from a terminal:
sudo apt-get install xnest
Xnest :1 -geometry 800x600 &
(xterm or another terminal emulator, maybe lxterm ? otherwise install apt-get install xterm)
and it should open a blank terminal into the Xnest window. Now you can run pico-8 and it will be fullscreen, inside this smaller window!
Haven't tested it in real!
