Hello there,

(English isn't my first Language, I hope it doesn't sound too bad, Sorry^^)

I was looking for a easy Solution to "modify" the Linux in my GPi Case to boot directly into PICO8. I don't want to use something like Retropie/Recalbox/Lakka, just a PICO8-Machine.

There was already a Project called PICOPI, which already assembled that. But it seems this Project doesn't exist anymore (Homepage is down; the Files I could find on archive.org doesn't seem to work anymore).

So I thought I write my own Script for this, which builds upon Raspbian, the Default-Linux-Distribution for Raspberry Pi (which builds upon GPi Case). I thought it could be useful for others, so I uploaded the Script^^.

While using this Script, you will be able to put your .p8-Files directly on the "boot"-Partition on the SD Card.

Script can be found on Github, including a Manual for using it:


EDIT: I also uploaded a Video on Youtube to show the Process:

Quick question: can "makepico8" work on a regular Raspberry Pi (i.e. Model 3B+)? I want to make a non-portable PICO-8 for some reason.

[EDIT 2020.AUG.09 10:22pm CST]: Never mind. It does work in a non-portable setting.
