I have a couple of people helping me make a 3D-Printable model for the case and plate, so this project might take shape fairly soon.</p> <p>Once complete, I intend to share the files, along with a QWERTY version of the keycap template.</p> <p>Here's a view of the sides:<br /> <a href="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/files/35208/PicoPal_Concept.png" target=_view_image><img style="" border=0 src="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/files/35208/PicoPal_Concept.png" width=160 height=44 alt="" /></a></p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=33536 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=33536 Tue, 05 Mar 2019 23:02:35 UTC Extreme Cave Chopper <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=62227#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_helicopter_cave-7.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=62227#p"> Extreme Cave Chopper v1.3</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=35208"> dripley</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=62227#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>Dodge rocks while avoiding the cave walls! Every 100 points, the cave colour changes, and your speed increases slightly. Inspired by the old Helicopter web game from the late '90s / early '00s.</p> <p>v1.3 changes:</p> <ul> <li>Added rocks that fall as you play, which increase in frequency the further you go</li> <li>Added ability to move left and right (to avoid said rocks)</li> <li>Lowered player speed increment as you progress</li> <li>Added fancier sprite-based title screen</li> </ul> <p>v1.2 changes:</p> <ul> <li>High score is now saved to base ram, and loaded on cart init</li> <li>Mute music by pressing O+X together</li> </ul> <p>v1.1 changes:</p> <ul> <li>Fixed bug that displayed old high score and new high score simultaneously</li> <li>Adjusted some colours and text</li> <li>Updated cart image</li> </ul> <p>Cave generation code from the &quot;Gamedev with Pico-8&quot; zine tutorial.</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=33377 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=33377 Mon, 25 Feb 2019 03:51:03 UTC Pico Pi - My Raspberry Pi Pico8 Concept <p>Hi there! I've fallen in love with Pico8 over the past few weeks. This is my first post here on the forums, and I thought I would share my Pico Pi project with you all :)</p> <p>I am in the planning phase of this project, the purpose of which is to create a dedicated Pico8 machine in the style of the Commodore 64, using only keys that the Pico8 software utilises.</p> <img style="" border=0 src="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/files/35208/pico_pi.png" alt="" /> <p>Planned Features:</p> <ul> <li>Ortholinear DVORAK key layout (can make key template file for QWERTY version available)</li> <li>Primary and Shift characters printed on each key</li> <li>Side-loading floppy disk drive and SD card reader for loading physical game carts</li> <li>Two front usb ports for controllers</li> <li>Rear ports: HDMI, Ethernet, USB, Power, (and RCA, for old TVs, if I can manage it)</li> <li>PICO8 logo key is actually the PAUSE key</li> </ul> <p>I'm planning to hand-wire the key switches to an Arduino Pro-Micro inside the case, which will connect internally to the Raspberry Pi via USB. I also want to create custom controllers that can plug into the front of the unit via USB.</p> <p>I've made custom mechanical keyboards before, with my own key designs printed from wasdkeyboards.com. I would prefer an SA profile key for this, but I can't find a company that will print custom labels on those for a reasonable price, so it'll have to be OEM for now.</p> <p>The part that I have no experience with will be the 3D modelling and printing of the outer shell and the switch plate. If anyone wants to help with that, please let me know!</p> <p>Critiques welcome :)</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=33358 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=33358 Sat, 23 Feb 2019 11:45:15 UTC
