Hi,

I'm just getting started and I wanted to know-how:
1) To create a custom player
2) How the scripting system works
3) How and where can I find the demo cartridges in Linux to open them and see how they are made and work

Thanks a lot hope to hear from you soon

This series of tutorials is quite nice: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9PPB6mawOBWzuPQAz_qPI6lWKMJBiwi1

For scripting, there are two ways:

The carts may be under ~/.lexaloffle/Voxatron, or you could load one then escape to designer and see the code and other parts there.

Good luck!

Thanks! As soon as I go over all this I'll maybe create a step by step guide while creating my game ;). I think it would help a lot.

Note that microscripting can be much faster than lua scripting; for example microscripting could be used to animate each flower in a scene, which would not be possible with the global scripting mode.

Both modes can also be used together.

(As a bonus, there is also a third mode which consists of including a pico-8 cart inside a voxatron cart and the game gets rendered in one slice of the display. That’s a fun bonus for devs who already know pico8!

)
