This program may not be too useful for you Pico-8 veterans but may prove instrumental to those learning the system or want an easy route to build their own mapper.
Obviously you can use the MAPPER if you want, but if you don't want to or can't, you may find this code to be of interest.
Here is the top of the source to show you what is going on in it.
As you can see it is a single string, 240-characters in length that uses only the special characters for Pico-8. If you check out the sprites you have:
Where you can replace each letter of the alphabet here with your own custom image. Then in the source editor, press SHIFT followed by that letter to enter in that character for the string in your board.
Run the program to see the results and build your own original game around this.
IF YOU USE PLEASE LET ME KNOW !
