I suffer from idea blocks pretty regularly so I made this tool. Most of the time game idea generators will generate a cool name or something, but this one is based around relationships between verbs. You can arrange the cards however you like, using as many (or as few) cards as you'd like, and then generate ideas! I like to just continually generate them until something pops out to me and then I save a screenshot to the desktop.</p> <p>I hope it helps someone other than me!</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=29248 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=29248 Sat, 29 Apr 2017 19:36:35 UTC Need more sprites? you can try this! <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=39974#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico39973.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=39974#p"> Need more sprites? you can try this!</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=22950"> 01010111</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=39974#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>So I was running out of sprites and I thought &quot;there must be a decent way around this&quot;</p> <p>a few hours later I came up with this. This cart is just showing 3 frames of a 128x128 animation - three times the size of the sprite sheet. You can peek at the code to see the relevant function - string_to_sprite() - but if you want to know the pipeline, here's how I did it.</p> <p>-I just searched for some anime gif at 128x128 to show this off, picked the first one I thought looked neat, opened it in Aseprite.<br /> -I switched over to the pico-8 palette and remapped the image to it<br /> -Then I went to pico-8 and typed the command &quot;export img.png&quot; - this gives you a 128x128 image of the spritesheet.<br /> -Then I went back into Aseprite, opened img.png and copied the first frame of animation to it, and saved.<br /> -Back in pico-8, typed the command &quot;import img.png&quot; - now we have the first frame of animation.<br /> -In the sprite sheet editor view, I copied a 16x4 selection of sprites by holding shift + clicking and dragging, ctrl+c<br /> -I then went into notepad, and pasted the selection. Now, if you do this you'll see a long string, starting with <table><tr><td width=0> <img src="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/gfxc/22950_0.png" width=0 height=0> </td> <td valign=bottom> <a style="cursor:pointer;font-size:8pt" onclick=' var el = document.getElementById("gfxcode_22950_0"); if (el.style.display == "none") el.style.display = ""; else el.style.display = "none"; microAjax("https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/gfxc/22950_0.txt", function (retdata){ var el = document.getElementById("gfxcode_22950_0"); el.innerHTML = retdata; el.focus(); el.select(); } ); '> [0x0]</a> </td></tr> <tr><td colspan=2> <textarea rows=3 class=lexinput id="gfxcode_22950_0" style="width:640px;background-color:#fed;display:none;overflow:hidden; font-size:6pt;"></textarea> </td> </tr> </table> . I did the same for the other 3 sequences (is there a way to copy the entire spritesheet?) and in notepad, I got rid of the [gfx] tags and the 4 digits in the front for each pasted section. Then I was left with a string 16,384 letters long. That's frame 1.<br /> -I repeated those steps to get 3 more frames.<br /> -So that is what those huge strings at the top of the code are. I couldn't fit the last frame in since I think the character limit is exactly 4 frames large, so to fit the rest of the code in I sacrificed a frame of animation :)</p> <p>This is kinda dumb, but if you need to swap out tilemaps for extra levels and stuff it might come in handy!</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=29236 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=29236 Thu, 27 Apr 2017 01:41:18 UTC WOBOLOB <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=36916#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico36915.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=36916#p"> WOBOLOB</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=22950"> 01010111</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=36916#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>Hi everyone!
