The menu sits on a separate cart alone and just passes the language pack on: theres no switching once the game starts.</p> Tue, 01 Jun 2021 14:24:25 UTC Publishing a multicart <p>Hi guys,</p> <p>thanks to pico's restrictions, I managed to finish my first-ever game, and I'm happy with the results.</p> <img style="margin-bottom:16px" border=0 src="/media/54882/2021-05-28_peral.png" alt="" /> <p>However, I ended up using filthy trickstery to squeeze in as much content as possible, and as a result I ended up with a game needing several non-cartridge files to function. I'd like the feedback, but am not quite sure how to publish it on the forums. I could use some help with this.</p> <p>The full game either <strong>#include</strong>s or <strong>load()</strong>s these files:</p> <div> <div class=scrollable_with_touch style="width:100%; max-width:800px; overflow:auto; margin-bottom:12px"> <table style="width:100%" cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0> <tr><td background=/gfx/code_bg1.png width=16><div style="width:16px;display:block"></div></td> <td background=/gfx/code_bg0.png> <div style="font-family : courier; color: #000000; display:absolute; padding-left:10px; padding-top:4px; padding-bottom:4px; "> <pre>enemies.lua game.p8 leveldata.p8l peral.p8 shop.lua translations.lua</pre></div></td> <td background=/gfx/code_bg1.png width=16><div style="width:16px;display:block"></div></td> </tr></table></div></div> <p>Some of the files are generated by my editor, and others are just data kept outside the game for the sake of developer sanity.</p> <p>How would I upload such a thing so that it would get embedded in a forum post? I could inline the #includes, but it will still need two carts, because the main cart is pushing both token and size limits (8142/8192 and 99.7 % respectively). And what's the proper way to link between same-game carts on the forums?</p> <p>Oh, and here's a <a href="">playable HTML export here</a> proving that the concoction actually works.</p> Fri, 28 May 2021 22:29:59 UTC
