It saves the player name, along with their high score into persistent cartridge data. It is based on my cat, who has frequent battles with our neighbours cat. I have however, toned down the violence significantly, to make the game accessible for all.</p> <p>Go check out my project called PicoBoard to learn how to implement a high score into your game, or leave a comment!</p> <p>Would love to see who could get the highest score, of this game of complete chance and endurance..!</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=27839 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=27839 Sat, 08 Oct 2016 04:51:36 UTC Baba Gee the cat walks the fence <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=28209#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico28208.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=28209#p"> Baba Gee the cat walks the fence</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=15003"> afburgess</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=28209#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>Just for fun!</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=27621 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=27621 Thu, 08 Sep 2016 16:33:38 UTC QWERTY Boy - Keyboard for PICO <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=28042#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico28139.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=28042#p"> QWERTY Boy 0.5</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=15003"> afburgess</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=28042#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p><strong>-- 0.5 --</strong></p> <ul> <li>Added blinking text cursor</li> <li>1646 tokens</li> </ul> <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=28042#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico28131.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=28042#p"> QWERTY Boy 0.4</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=15003"> afburgess</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=28042#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p><strong>-- 0.4 --</strong></p> <ul> <li>Numbers &amp; Symbols keyboard</li> <li>(Potentially annoying) keyboard sounds</li> <li>Weird bug fix for the PocketChip version of Pico-8</li> <li>Token count has creeped up to 1529</li> </ul> <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=28042#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico28095.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=28042#p"> QWERTY Boy 0.3</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=15003"> afburgess</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=28042#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p><strong>-- 0.3 --</strong></p> <ul> <li>Keys now flash when pressed - would love to know opinions on which colour works best!</li> <li>Cleaned up + fixed a backspace bug</li> <li>Improved hitbox accuracy</li> </ul> <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=28042#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico28079.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=28042#p"> QWERTY Boy 0.2</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=15003"> afburgess</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=28042#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p><strong>-- 0.2 --</strong></p> <ul> <li>Backspace</li> <li>Space</li> <li>Cleaned up a bit to cut down token usage (at 1168 tokens, 4136 characters)</li> </ul> <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=28042#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico28041.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=28042#p"> QWERTY Boy 0.1</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=15003"> afburgess</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=28042#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p><strong>-- QWERTY Boy --</strong></p> <p>This is a keyboard for pico-8! Its still very much a work in progress, but hopefully soon I can turn it into a text adventure style game.</p> <p>This is my second attempt - you can find my first here: <a href="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?pid=27046#p27853">Pico Keyboard 1.1</a>. </p> <p>There are a number of changes to QWERTY Boy, including;</p> <p><strong>-- New QWERTY layout --</strong><br /> Makes a lot more sense than an a,b,c,d,e.. layout. Keys have been drawn so its easy to see the hit boxes when tapping on the PocketChip screen, or clicking with a mouse. Designed so it can be easily changed to AZERTY, and other layouts.</p> <p><strong>-- Significantly less token usage --</strong><br /> Currently down to 1300 tokens from 5122! There is still quite a bit of fat left to cut off too, so I'm hoping that the final keyboard will be under 1000 tokens. I would have to hear your ideas about how to write the code most efficiently. </p> <p><strong>-- Removal of Up,Down,Left,Right Selection --</strong><br /> I felt that nobody would ever tolerate playing a text adventure through manually selecting keys, so I removed it to save a bit of space. Tapping on the screen works great on PocketChip! For playing in the browser, I plan to add support for this project: <a href="https://github.com/dppc/p8keyboard.js">p8keyboard.js</a>. If this works out, I will also add support to 'hide' the keyboard GUI.</p> <p>Let me know what you think!</p> <p><a href="http://www.twitter.com/afburgess"><a href="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?uid=15003"> @afburgess</a></a></p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=27608 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=27608 Mon, 05 Sep 2016 12:44:28 UTC PicoBoard: Text + Number Entry Keyboard <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=27046#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico28738.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=27046#p"> PicoBoard 1.3</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=15003"> afburgess</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=27046#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p> <table><tr><td width=116> <img src="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/gfxc/15003_2.png" width=116 height=20> </td> <td valign=bottom> <a style="cursor:pointer;font-size:8pt" onclick=' var el = document.getElementById("gfxcode_15003_2"); if (el.style.display == "none") el.style.display = ""; else el.style.display = "none"; microAjax("https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/gfxc/15003_2.txt", function (retdata){ var el = document.getElementById("gfxcode_15003_2"); el.innerHTML = retdata; el.focus(); el.select(); } ); '> [29x5]</a> </td></tr> <tr><td colspan=2> <textarea rows=3 class=lexinput id="gfxcode_15003_2" style="width:640px;background-color:#fed;display:none;overflow:hidden; font-size:6pt;"></textarea> </td> </tr> </table> <br /> <strong>--// PicoBoard //--</strong></p> <p>PicoBoard is an easy to integrate keyboard overlay function which you can use in your projects. It uses the arrow keys to select a character, and is ideal for inputting a character name, a high score, or any other short piece of text. If you are looking at making a project where you input large quantities of text, you might like to look at my other keyboard project, <a href="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=27608">QWERTY Boy</a>, which uses a touch/mouse interface.</p> <p><strong>--// 1.3 //--</strong><br /> Whats new::</p> <ul> <li>Excellent optimisations from <a href="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?uid=11832&amp;amp;mode=about">Sibwara</a>, resulting in a reduction of over 100 tokens!</li> <li>Keyboard sounds</li> <li>Picoboard can now be called in your project just with the function Picoboard().</li> <li>The UI isn't as large now, so will be able to see more of whats going on behind Picoboard</li> </ul> <p>Still to come::</p> <ul> <li>Instructions + Demo of how to implement Picoboard into your project</li> <li>Some better SFX for the keyboard (would love your help + contributions!)</li> </ul> <p>&lt;----------------------&gt;</p> <p><strong>--// Previous Versions //--</strong></p> <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=27046#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico28503.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=27046#p"> PicoBoard 1.2</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=15003"> afburgess</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=27046#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p><strong>--// 1.2 //--</strong><br /> This version has be written from the ground up!</p> <ul> <li>Now only <strong>658 tokens</strong> (down from 5119 tokens in the previous version)</li> <li>The text display now centres</li> <li>New blinking cursor</li> <li>String is stored in a table along with a string</li> </ul> <p><strong>--// Legacy Carts //--</strong></p> <p><img style="" border=0 src="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/cposts/2/27853.p8.png" alt="" /><img style="" border=0 src="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/cposts/2/27045.p8.png" alt="" /></p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=4076 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=4076 Thu, 18 Aug 2016 04:22:54 UTC
