I've been searching around various forums and can't seem to find a definitive answer. Is it possible to set up Pico 8 to boot directly into a game, and have it run automatically? Pico 8 is an awesome platform for writing silly applications and I would love to make a dedicated hardware setup that boots directly into one of these applications (think: cosplay gadgets!). Anyone have experience with this?
When you run Pico-8 from the command line, you can specify command line flags to control certain behaviors. For example, you can specify the name of a cartridge file, and Pico-8 will load and run the cart immediately.
Check out details on the wiki:
i know i saw someone had a rpi boot sd that auto booted into whatever game was on it, couldn't connect to the bbs or something
all i remember was the guy had it set up so you pit one pico 8 game on a sd and the rpi gooted into it directly, if anyone finds it i need to bookmark it
pico8 -run cart.p8
for everyone looking for it
also, I noticed that http://pico-8.wikia.com/wiki/RunningPico8 is outdated, since I found a -kiosk mode that boots directly into splore favorites and it is not listed there, so I thought maybe running pico8 --help our pico8 -h would give me the full list, but no
