I'm relatively new to Pico-8 (and programming in general). So I have two quick questions.

Can you save strings similar to the dset method? I know you can save each character in a slot but that brings me onto my next question.

Can you have more than one cartdata to save to? I'm trying to economize my 256 memory slots. Without saving character names, I can fit about 4 saves in that space. But I can only fit about 2 or 3 with doing letters in each slot.

If there is no way to have multiple cartdatas or a similar feature, is there a more effective and accurate way to store multiple characters in a single byte?

I was thinking of some crazy stuff like adding up the alpha-numeric value and dividing it or taking away a certain amount but it's too late at night and I'm a bit brain dead from all my stuff before hand.

Thanks in advance!
