This is the Pico-8 Word Processor, the text editor you never knew you needed (because you don't).</p> <p>In seriousness, I think this project would work well to keep away distractions when writing. It strips writing down to the bare essentials, almost like writing on a typewriter. No superfluous fluff here; only the written word.</p> <p>This is my first Pico-8 published project, so let me know what you think or if you can think of any additions. In the future, I'd love to create a version compatible with non-keyboarded hardware (see below) and to include more calming classical music (like <em>clair de lune</em>)</p> <h3>Features:</h3> <ul> <li>27 characters per line, 13 lines per screen; all in a stylish, yet readable font</li> <li>Supports both uppercase and lowercase letters</li> <li>Day/Night modes, included BGM, and toggleable key clicking noises to make the experience just that slight touch nicer</li> <li>When finished, export your text to a .txt file for further editing</li> </ul> <p>Credits:</p> <ul> <li>daniel linssen for the font (m3x6) and <a href="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?uid=41031"> @merwok</a> for converting it to Pico-8</li> <li><a href="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?uid=11038"> @RobbyDuguay</a> for the BGM</li> <li><a href="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?uid=11292"> @Gruber</a> for the key clicking sound from their sfx pack</li> </ul> <h2>Virtual Keyboard</h2> <p>By modifying code from afburgess, I was able to make a quick mod that allows non-keyboarded hardware to run this software. In the future, I'd like to figure out a way to make typing a little quicker. Maybe I should move the keys around some more... Anyway, please give me any feedback you have!<br /> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=88455#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_mkol103p8wpvkv1-0.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=88455#p"> Pico-8 Word Processor (VK) v1</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=50840"> mkol103</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=88455#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> <br /> Credit to <a href="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?uid=15003"> @afburgess</a> for the base code of the virtual keyboard.</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=41855 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=41855 Wed, 03 Mar 2021 15:53:16 UTC Can I get some opinions on font choice? <p>Hi everybody! I'm about to release my first full-scale project, but I have one final obstacle to contend with: font choice. I have 3 options, and I just wanted to see what you guys thought would be good.<br /> Option 1:</p> <img style="" border=0 src="/media/50840/Option 1.png" alt="" /> <p>Option 2:</p> <img style="" border=0 src="/media/50840/Option 2.png" alt="" /> <p>Option 3:</p> <img style="" border=0 src="/media/50840/Option 3.png" alt="" /> <p>Options 1 and 3 have support for uppercase and lowercase letters (though, conversely, option 2 supports symbols). Option 3 looks the nicest, but I have to use less of the screen for text or else it takes up too much CPU power. Also, the font is bigger, so it has less characters per line. Right now, I'm really stuck between options 1 and 2. I like the addition of upper and lowercase letters, but to be honest, I'm not sure that makes up for it being sort of ugly.</p> <p>Anyway, let me know what you think :)</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=41766 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=41766 Thu, 25 Feb 2021 23:23:54 UTC
