I recent wanted to replay Swarm Racer and now the game does not work at all. It open then closes immediately followed by
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
Running Lubuntu 14.04 LTS - 64 Bit. I tried before the 32 bit and 64 bit version.
Any help on this?
Can someone help me understand the For statement like I'm 5.
This is from the Squashy project in Picozine #1
-- draw the lives
for i=1,lives do
I understand what spr function is doing but in trying to use the for statement myself I run into a lot of errors.
So I got my hands on the Pico8Zine mag # 1 and I did the beginners Pong-like tutorial. Now I am trying to add on code to it. I was going to put a game over scroll when you lose.
So I download a few carts of other players/makers that had something like what I was looking for and I came upon
draw_text function - It's not in the PICO-8.txt - So where would I go to learn more about stuff like this that the editor can do? A straight Lua book or somewhere else?
Thanks in advance for your time,
New to Pico-8 - Trying to get my feet wet. I created 3 sprites - 2 Bad Guys and 1 Good Guy. In the sprite editor my bad guys are located in location 000,001,002 and 016, 017, 018 while my good guy is located 003, 004, 005.
I am using a move_demo from here - Movement Demo by Shane Riley.
When the program is ran - I get the Bad Guy located at 000 to 002 to control. I tried changing some values around to get the sprite located @ 003 to 005 to no avail.
How do I go about doing this without cutting and pasting my Good Guy to the Bad Guy position?
It's been a great many years since I coded anything, FYI.
