Granted, I'm a novice to both Lua and PICO-8, but when I was able to get down to the core of what was throwing the out of memory error (after a few hours), I was astounded.
This one line will eventually exhaust all memory:
WHILE TRUE DO END
The question is...why?
Just before I purchased PICO-8, I found a cart through the web player that was a vector-like racing game against a single AI opponent. Your car looks vaguely like the ship from Asteroids, and there is a turbo button that allows you to boost periodically. The view is top-down around a track where the viewport moves to keep your car in the center as the flat track "moves" around you. I believe the normal race length is 2 laps.
I'm quite interested in playing this cart again on the PICO, but I've searched for days without success trying to find it again. Would anyone happen to recognize the cart I'm talking about and know the name of it?
