Hi, so with the new Pico-8 update (0.2.4) I've been messing around with some of the new features and specially P8SCII, as of now I found something pretty weird, the new one-off character control code (\^.) seems to use the same control code as dotty mode used to, I noticed this when I ran the Impossible Mission cart, which has a corrupted title now due to Pico-8 treating most of the string as 1-bit character data.

Cart #impossible-1 | 2021-03-13 | Code ▽ | Embed ▽ | License: CC4-BY-NC-SA
98

I don't know if this is was done on purpose since it's still mentioned in the manual ALONGSIDE the new one off character control code, maybe Zep forgot it was already in use or he changed it to another control code without adding it to the manual? If this has been documented before or I'm doing something wrong please tell me.

@zep, this one is pretty bad, and should be patched asap. It seems that "\^." has been re-used for the new one-off image chars, but it was supposed to enable dotty mode. Any cart that used that feature is broken now, and any current cart using one-offs will break after the patch. T_T

Edit: Void Roller is also broken now. The score at the end used dotty mode, so the summary when you die is also glitched out. https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?pid=93976
