UPDATE: Forgot to put in the changing wind direction, added now.
VVhat's new ?
LAST MINUTE ADDITION, Gruber the resident Pico-8 musician came through, was very kind to me, wrote to me on his page, and offered what I could use for my Christmas project here. How wonderful !
-- + added changing wind
-- + added 3d card opening
-- graphic. tricky stuff.
The music that I wrote I am keeping (the post after this one). It's a curious method to be sure where all notes are the same length and some are repeated in different octaves to maintain the flow of the song.
Who knows ? Perhaps in the future someone might be interested in this style of music. :)
This code is very reminiscent of what I wrote back in QBasic with a few exceptions. Back then I had access to 256-colors for the palette so I neatly encoded it all by only animating the palette I could have snow fall, glitter the 5-pointed star on the tree and of course turn off and on the ornaments/lights with 8-different colors.
You can also now press (O) to pause the music, and (X) to hide the text. Hit again to continue them.
Hope you like it, it's the best I can do for now. Have a great holiday season everyone !
Thanks ... That page turn was a bit of work. I wish Pico-8 was just - well, BLINK, you know, for reading and writing every pixel. It's almost there but not quite.
Was thinking of writing a metal picture roller at some point. I did that for my sister's birthday greeting back in Turbo Pascal. May need to make an expansive table for brightness levels if I do.
