NEW ONESCRIPT DUMMY-PROOF VERSION (READ BELOW)
Remember RealTimeCelester and maybe RealTimeProggrupter?
They were RTC programs for celeste classic. what that means is they corrupt the games memory over time!
Now, have you ever wished you could ruin ANY cart? not just celeste? well i have the thing for you!
Introducing RTC-P! The first portable RTC for Pico-8! Simple copy the below code, following the instructions, and bam! ruin any cart with ease!
Important: Do NOT run the cart above, as it will do nothing. that is just the corrupter, but it has no cart to corrupt. to use, copy the code below and add it in a new code tab, or somewhere clutter-free. then add
rtc() at the 1ST LINE in your update cycle. to change corrupt time or corrupt level, just go into the pause menu, go to the setting you want to change and press left or right.
nxt cprt in: is how many frames until next corruption.
REMEMBER: to use you must be able to EDIT your cart! to do this, just load it in desktop pico-8 or at https://pico-8-edu.com
To load your cart, find it in splore, exit splore and press esc. for edu users, find your cart on the bbs and either download it and load it, or copy its cart id at the bottom of the runnable cartridge on its page. (something like
RTC-P Manual (For non-game loop using carts)
Now, what if this is all too complicated? what if you just want to throw in a script and just have it work? well good news, ive concocted a easy to use RTC script that doesnt need anything! just put it in a new code tab or below all game loops (_init, _update, _draw) to use! the program will do the rest of the work.
code on cart above, or copy code below.
HOW TO USE:
Copy code, then go to a Pico-8 Editor- this can be on desktop pico-8 or at pico-8 edu, which you can access here. then just load your cartridge you'd like to corrupt by typing
load followed by its cart id. Cart id's can be found below the cart on BBS.
for example, to load manual rtcp, you would type
load #rtcp. the "-0" isnt necessary. that's just the version number and pico-8 automatically grabs the latest version.
