TO LOAD THIS PICO-8 CART, in immediate mode, type: load #c32_string

This is a continuation of a project I worked on last Spring back to effect 32-colors out of Pico-8 and at a pixel-level where the screen is 64x128 in size.


Unlike the first version, this one does not fill up the spritesheet and instead has a single function, "show32pic()" of 82-tokens or 197-chars that takes the included single string located in the sourcecode of 8192-characters and draws out the 64x128x32 picture with the correct decompressed image.

This total code compresses at 4587-bytes or uses 29% of a total 15616-bytes to maintain posting online as a clipboard file or PNG file.

If you would like me to write a tool for yourself and others to use that can convert a 24- or 32-bit PNG or JPG to this new 32-color format for new 64x128 pixeled logo screens to your Pico-8 carts, I can do so, just ask.

Further if you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to enter them below. Thanks !

Thank you, @lily.kensa.

I hope @zep plans for the future Pico-8 that it may have the ability to display 256-colors for this 64x128 resolution as it will take no extra memory than it is now of 8192-bytes (64x128=8192, 1-byte per pixel).
