I tried to change the theme to something cute. The original is here: <a href="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?pid=55085&amp;tid=31664">https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?pid=55085&amp;tid=31664</a></p> <p>Issues:</p> <ol> <li> <p>If I knew more about coding, I would try to make the title/end screen art larger by using more of the spritesheet. Or even better, animations for the character sprites.</p> </li> <li>The music doesn't fit the theme. If anyone has some fun/happy music to add, that would be awesome!</li> </ol> <p>Release Notes</p> <p>0.3 - Fixed final screen image again.<br /> 0.2 - Changed the final screen image so it doesn't get cut off. Changed the transparent green exit sprite.<br /> 0.1 - Initial release</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=31833 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=31833 Thu, 06 Sep 2018 15:12:34 UTC How to automatically launch into SPLORE mode in Linux? <p>I created a custom launcher for my Gnome desktops (running Fedora 23/24 and Ubuntu Gnome 14.04), but I can't get it to launch in the SPLORE mode.</p> <p>The .desktop file I added to ~/.local/share/applications looks like:</p> <div> <div style="max-width:800px; overflow:auto; margin-bottom:12px"> <table style="width:100%" cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0> <tr><td background=/gfx/code_bg1.png width=16><div style="width:16px;display:block"></div></td> <td background=/gfx/code_bg0.png> <div style="font-family : courier; color: #000000; display:absolute; padding-left:10px; padding-top:4px; padding-bottom:4px; "> <pre> [Desktop Entry] Encoding=UTF-8 Value=1.0 Type=Application Name=PICO-8 GenericName=PICO-8 Comment=PICO-8 Icon=/home/username/Games/pico-8/lexaloffle-pico8.png Exec=&quot;/home/username/Games/pico-8/pico8&quot; Categories=Game; Path=/home/username/Games/pico-8/ </pre></div></td> <td background=/gfx/code_bg1.png width=16><div style="width:16px;display:block"></div></td> </tr></table></div></div> <p>If I change the Exec line to include the -splore option, like this:</p> <div> <div style="max-width:800px; overflow:auto; margin-bottom:12px"> <table style="width:100%" cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0> <tr><td background=/gfx/code_bg1.png width=16><div style="width:16px;display:block"></div></td> <td background=/gfx/code_bg0.png> <div style="font-family : courier; color: #000000; display:absolute; padding-left:10px; padding-top:4px; padding-bottom:4px; "> <pre> Exec=&quot;/home/username/Games/pico-8/pico8 -splore&quot; </pre></div></td> <td background=/gfx/code_bg1.png width=16><div style="width:16px;display:block"></div></td> </tr></table></div></div> <p>it doesn't work at all.</p> <p>Any ideas?</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=3966 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=3966 Sat, 30 Jul 2016 14:58:38 UTC An online game guide for Mistigri <p>I created an online game guide for the awesome PICO-8 game Mistigri:</p> <p><a href="https://pico8blog.wordpress.com/">Mistigri Game Guide</a></p> <p>It is a simple wordpress site, but it's free and mobile friendly.

I wanted to mimic the old school Nintendo black box games. You can view the large faux box art here:</p> <p><a href="http://imgur.com/a2Rf0Kz">Large Box Art</a></p> <p>I am considering making a few video tutorials to show other users how to do it. Is any interested? </p> <p>If so, I could post a few videos in a couple of weeks. I would be curious to see what others design. Maybe someone could make a template, so it is easy for everyone to make consistent covers.</p> <img style="" border=0 src="http://i.imgur.com/sFrJFPa.png" alt="" /> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=3489 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=3489 Sun, 29 May 2016 20:18:53 UTC
