ScrubSandwich [Lexaloffle Blog Feed]https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?uid=30036 Adding a BBS System to Pico-8 <p>Internet capability. It's not something you hear much of when talking about Pico-8, even if it's looked down upon for the ridiculousness of a 80's themed console could do such a thing. But there is one common term that does crop op alot, BBS. BBS is the name of Pico-8's Cart Library (Bulletin Board System, for those unaware) and the thing I wish Pico-8 users could freely control. Now Pico-8 already has one of these and indeed it does, but Imagine running your own.<br /> Pico-8 has started many people on there careers as game developers, why not web developers? I'd like to mention some points.</p> <ol> <li>Private Sites<br /> Pico-8 isn't a very private thing, which is a good thing, but imagine a small Pico-8 games company. hosting there own BBS for chatting with there members on a custom designed web-page, keyboard controlled. Having your mini-software logo featured at the top of the screen in glories 16 colors, it sounds like a dream come true. </li> </ol> <p>2.New Challenges<br /> The struggles of dealing with the web development are more than a minor nuisance, an while I believe It would be simplified for Pico-8 users, Dealing with the people logged in, Members who are allowed and not, maybe even dealing with a White-list. Valuable skill for anybody</p> <p>3.Many Possibility's<br /> With a take to the internet many Pico-8 Developers will find new things to do with that. And who knows a BBS game could be rather interesting. Wouldn't you like to play a game across the web with your favorite Pico-8 pals?</p> <p>4.New Cart Sharing Methods<br /> A Custom BBS could be one's hub to there favorite Carts, or a way for them sharing Carts. Some people use a raspberry<br /> PI for Pico-8, and having the only description for a game be available from the Users browsers, makes it difficult<br /> for those users to learn about there favorite games. </p> <p>As for limitations. Well there are several Ideas. One making it text based only, Two limiting colors or a few select<br /> colors per page. I think there would be several benefits to adding a User Controlled BBS System.</p> <p>Those are just my thoughts, opinions, and ideas. Thank You for reading! </p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=32565 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=32565 Fri, 14 Dec 2018 17:10:24 UTC Inversia OverWorld Theme <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=58915#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico58914.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=58915#p"> Inversia OverWorld Theme</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=30036"> ScrubSandwich</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=58915#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> This is my first cart to the splore so forgive me if its a bit messy.
