But, with the new P8SCII features, it's possible to move the cursor with command characters! Therefore, I made a function that replaces all instances of M and W, and replaces them with a 5-width version!</p> <p>It also changes the I, makes thin punctuation have less whitespace, and changes some other symbols.</p> <img style="margin-bottom:16px" border=0 src="/media/42087/pushamo_core_000.png" alt="" /> <p>Limitations:<br /> -Mostly, issues with P8SCII features! So I think it should work fine with games not using P8SCII<br /> -If you use use both the default font and custom fonts, you have to be conscious of where this is used<br /> -Doesn't work with solid text background, since characters cover each other up<br /> -Doesn't work with wide mode because the w in \^w is converted<br /> -Doesn't work with wide mode because it looks like width is slightly different? Like m becomes visibily nn<br /> -If anything is dependent on the length of a string for visuals (like x = 3 * #&quot;lala&quot;) It will mess with it<br /> -I'm back-updating my games to use this and will update this with fixes as I come into issues</p> Sun, 13 Jun 2021 15:23:50 UTC Flags For Friends <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=91451#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_flags_for_friends_v1-5.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=91451#p"> flags_for_friends_v1.3</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=42087"> beanborg</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=91451#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> <br /> What do an excitable asexual pirate, a cultured genderqueer vampire, and a lesbian bird who may be at an important decision point in her life all have in common?
