Using extcmd to record audio works correctly inside of PICO-8, but doesn't work in compiled versions. It shows an error saying that it's an unknown command. Am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug?
I doubt this is intended to be a feature. If people are only giving out a compiled version, not the cart, they probably intend their work not to be edited or shared outside of the use or purchase of their executable. That choice of open-closed source is, it seems, an intended feature.
And @dw817, no, all commands should not be available. The compiled versions are intended to be closed executables, and should not contain any commands outside of game controls. Pico-8 commands should only be available to those who own and are using the Pico-8 program with license.
Now @UnitVector. Perhaps I'm confused. What I mean to say is anything that can be run in P8 and provided you have purchased and own Pico-8 should also run in an exported executable ?
At no point even if closed-source should commands be restricted or prohibited that you cannot use in immediate mode, except for SAVE which saves off the source-code ?
With exception to the LOAD, SAVE, and SPLORE command. In fact if you attempt to use the SAVE command you get:
can not save while running
Which makes sense. Entering SPLORE in your source-code does nothing.
Failing this what other commands do you think should not be available for export that can run in immediate or Lexaloffle mode ?
