I don't know what to put under the "about me"

:: Unfold ::

Back in August I sent some gifs of this program I made alongside my dad so I could talk about old GFX. It occurred to me that I didn't post this snippet for others to use (unless you trudged through my discord message about it). I know many people have done effects like this since TLINE was released but as far as I know, my algorithm is unique, or at least uninfluenced by anything other than RGME's video on Mode 7 transformations. I wrote this before I knew anything about symbolab, calculus, or matrix multiplication, so it was all done with fuzzy mind logic.

*Quick note: the rotation control is accelerated so it'll be easier on the eyes when showing the program to others, variable t is the rotation, tsp is it's velocity. To change that Replace tsp±=0.0025 with t+=0.0125 and toss out the two math expressions below it.

Feel free to use this code how you want

How do you post to Itch.io and be able to play in-browser? I'm aware that you can export carts as more than just .p8.png, which is what I've been doing, but I've been unsuccessful uploading .html and .js to itch.io allowing for play in-browser. I know this is possible since others have been able to do this, even before those features were introduced. I can't find any documentation on how though. Does anyone know how?

A while ago I made a function for this

This was very clunky so I remade it. It used to have 124 tokens but I lowered it to 43.

You can use this function as much as you want without credit.

How to use:

printl(text,x,y,inner color,outer color,height)

inner color --the color inside the border
outer color --the outline,
height --how far down you want your outline to reach. 0 means the outline has the same width in all directions.

--the x and y are the coordinates of the top right corner of the inside color.

I'm going to get to the point here.

  1. How do you update? It seems almost all the games not predownloaded are incompatible

  2. How do you import and export .P8 files?

  3. Dev Kit Mouse. I've seen people talk about it a while ago. Is there any news on that? Is it possible to macgyver the GPIO or USB port to get it to work with a mouse?

I’m going to refer to them as chinese characters because it makes more sense. Of course this all applies to Kanji.

So I’ve been itching to make a game with chinese characters and I know many of you want Japan Kanji for your Japanese styled games. Kanji and Chinese aren’t new to pico-8. But almost every use of chinese characters are put into the sprite sheet. I think it’s obvious that won’t work for most people since you can’t use any other sprites or the map.

So I’ve been working on a horrible compression system to get vectors of radicals and work on combining radicals into hodgepodged characters. If you didn’t know, chinese characters are often made of smaller radicals (which usually function as their own characters too)
For example: 好 meaning “good”, “nice”, etc.. . The character is made of two smaller characters: 女 “woman” and 子 “child”. My goal is to make the radicals as vector shapes and combine them into various characters. I’ve gotten the radicals down to strings, with 0-9 letters representing cordinates which will need to be changed to base 64 by using the letters, glyphs, numbers, and two other symbols which I haven’t figured out but should be fine. Then I need to get a function to read some variable of where to put and size each radical. I think that when someone would want to use this system they shouldn’t have a respiratory of 2,000 to 8,000 characters and instead pick and grab some for their use.

So if you read my worthless plan I want to know what am I missing or what am I doing that is horrible? I will post a demo soon once I got the placement function down. If you ask me I got about half way with it all in about a day excluding adding the many characters and radicals which might just take forever. I should probably wait to post but I know something in my plan must be bad.

Edit: Here’s the Wikipedia article on radicals: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radical_(Chinese_characters)

There is a sine and cosine function but no tangent function. Anyone have a function of their own?

Hey Guys, I'm making a custom OS. Becuase Cartverse can't load like the inbuilt OS can. So if you have a game you want to be included then comment your cart name and ID.

I was working on a Chinese to English vocab program, and pinyin (The English alphabet for Chinese) uses diacritics all the time

maybe not a thing that can be used in the code, but in text variables. Having a function in the text variable like "dia" (like flr) or something. If you're having issues imaging what the would look like, here

 Print("Hello W' .. dia("o") .. "rld")

Hello Wòrld

This is a free to use font base you can use

This also can also calculate any base to base 10

This also comes with 2 fonts, "Boxy Bold" and "3,4"
