zlg [Lexaloffle Blog Feed]https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?uid=14922 A textbox I'm building, comments welcome <p>Hi there, fellow PICO-8 lovers. Today I want to share something I've been working on a little bit here and there throughout the year, and ask for a little feedback.</p> <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=98479#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_tojenanoja-0.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=98479#p"> tojenanoja</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=14922"> zlg</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=98479#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>My endgoal for this text box is to be able to make decisions (2- or 3- options at most) and to add extra features, such as Zelda-like highlighting, chaining to another textbox (for conversation), and a page-break like feature to pace which lines get scrolled in. So far, I have a custom inset and outset animation with sound, per-letter sfx, a throbbing button indicator to advance, and clean removal from the objlist.</p> <p>It's taken me quite a bit of trial and error to pull this off. If you know of ways to simplify my code while supporting all of the same features, please let me know!</p> <p>The textbox is implemented in coroutines that run in parallel until certain conditions are met. This allows one to think of the phases of the textbox in terms of a Gannt chart.</p> <p>This is the first time I've gotten something together that feels <em>almost</em> ready for production, so any tips or feedback are appreciated!</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=44940 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=44940 Sun, 10 Oct 2021 23:04:36 UTC Bouncing Bubble <p>It took me a while to update to PICO-8 0.2.1b, so when I upgraded, I took the opportunity to play around with the pattern feature implemented a while ago. I also wanted to try out the new oval tools. The result is this little guy. I wanted to draw with only shape drawing tools, and used a simple table with some runtime values. It could probably be cleaned up, but I think it's a cute enough demo to learn a few new features. I enjoyed figuring out how to draw a bubble without using the pixel editor.</p> <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=86729#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_tamemanize-0.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=86729#p"> tamemanize</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=14922"> zlg</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=86729#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>If there are any style or logic improvement suggestions, please share them! The screen edge collision logic isn't terribly good, so I know that needs work.</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=41259 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=41259 Sat, 23 Jan 2021 23:52:34 UTC
