WingedRobot [Lexaloffle Blog Feed] Strings preceded by newline get chopped up. <p>I don't know if this is just a quirk of how print does its job, but I've found that print statements with strings that begin with a &quot;\n&quot; newline character get cut off in the middle of the line. </p> <img style="margin-bottom:16px" border=0 src="" alt="" /> <p>In this image, the lines who are cut off are formatted with a \n at the beginning<br /> <code>print(&quot;\nthird&quot;)</code></p> <p><code>print(&quot;\nfourth&quot;)</code></p> <p><code>print(&quot;\nfifth&quot;)</code></p> <p>I'm in a bit of a hurry, will update with more later.</p> Wed, 03 Jul 2019 23:54:46 UTC Swirly!

It had been a while since trig class. I was rusty on how they worked and after some time re-learning how to make a circle I made this.</p> <p>One thing I learned while playing around was what printing could do if you didn't clear the screen. I found this out while trying to print out a debug statement! The line feed creates a really interesting effect if you're playing with motion, and purposefully using empty prints to achieve this is not something I've seen many other people play with.</p> <p>Later on, I added simple controls and a button to clear the screen so I could make little art pieces with the cool patterns created by a spinning object like this, and created pieces some art:</p> <p><img style="margin-bottom:16px" border=0 src="" alt="" /><img style="margin-bottom:16px" border=0 src="" alt="" /><img style="margin-bottom:16px" border=0 src="" alt="" /><img style="margin-bottom:16px" border=0 src="" alt="" /></p> <p>I just now added a button to reverse the direction of the wheel (just 'cuz) and I decided to (FINALLY) share this on here instead of just on twitter. I'm gonna keep on uploading stuff on here so I can keep a little blog of my own Pico-escapades. </p> Tue, 26 Feb 2019 05:03:31 UTC Kirby of the Stars <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=62235#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_kirbyinstarfield-0.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=62235#p"> Kirby of the Stars</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=26354"> WingedRobot</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=62235#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>This is a Pico-8 doodle I made a while ago using only circles. I wanted it to be the first cart I published on the BBS because I love it so much. It might be one of my favorite things I've ever made. </p> <p>I tried as closely as possible to follow the traditional tutorial of how to draw Kirby:</p> <h3>First you draw a circle,</h3> <h3>Then you dot the eyes,</h3> <h3>Add a great big smile</h3> <h3>And presto, it's Kirby!</h3> <p>I have plans to add some animation to Kirby himself later on, but for now I just wanted to share him with everybody!</p> <p>EDIT:<br /> I forgot, but I actually was inspired to do this because of a tweet from @thekirbybot on twitter!<br /> <a href=""></a></p> Mon, 25 Feb 2019 08:46:14 UTC
