Hello there, I am a total noob when it comes to Lua and Pico 8 but I have been trying to get past my own limitations.
However I kind of need help finding a better direction to code everything. I know there are demos and countless searches on the internet keep telling me to look at them but everything is so short hand that even JELPI is ridiculously complex looking.
Like I want to learn, but a lot of things with the code in JELPI might be too optimized for me to get just be glancing at it.
This is what I have been working on:
link my P8 file
Still don't know how to get embed...
Just looking at the code there is some problems as using booleans like that allows the controls to break down due to holding down a button. Was trying to fix that.
Again I am really trying to start from Zero experience so it would be great if you know of good video/material/forms that cover this too. While looking at other people's code is neat and all... if I cannot read it... it does not help.
Thanks for the help I really want to hopefully make something soon.
