Obviously in this out-of-focus situation PICO-8 would have to ignore keyboard input, but still respond to gamepad input.</p> <p>love,<br /> kittenm4ster</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=44784 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=44784 Mon, 27 Sep 2021 04:36:40 UTC line-drawing wraparound bug in v0.2.2 <ol> <li>Run the cart at this link: <a href="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=41062">https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=41062</a></li> <li>Pick up the hen with the web</li> <li>Slam into the right side of the screen repeatedly</li> </ol> <p>observe that part of the lines which make up the web are visible on the left (opposite) side of the screen</p> <p>This happens in v0.2.2 of the BBS player, the native version, and the HTML export from the native version.

everything else is blank</p> <p>I'm guessing the cstore file is intended be <em>overlayed</em> on top of the original ROM contents when copying from cart ROM to cart RAM (and that's why it only saves the changed parts?), but it looks like there was a mistake in implementation and the cstore file contents actually are the <em>only</em> thing copied to base RAM?</p> <p>I can't reproduce the behavior when using a p8 or p8.png file; this happens only with splore or from an exported binary</p> <p>To reproduce:</p> <ol> <li>load a cart from the splore or launch a binary export of a cart that contains data and calls cstore specifying a partial section of cart memory, e.g. cstore(0, 0, 0x2000) (which is what my jigsaw puzzle cart does but I'm about to change it to write the entire ROM as a workaround ;p)</li> <li>exit splore or close the binary export</li> <li>relaunch the cart</li> <li>see that now all data regions of cart ROM are &quot;permanently&quot;

I then tried restarting my computer and it's still happening.</p> <h3>Screenshot</h3> <img style="" border=0 src="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/files/9551/Screen Shot 2019-08-08 at 3.56.54 PM.png" alt="" /> <h3>A Workaround (as a user)</h3> <ol> <li>Use &quot;inspect element&quot; on the canvas (e.g. push Option + Cmd + I, click the hover tool thing, and then click on the canvas)</li> <li>uncheck image-rendering: pixelated</li> <li>check it again</li> </ol> <p>That fixes it for some reason :| It makes no sense, which makes me think it's Chrome's fault.</p> <p>(EDIT: actually sometimes unchecking/checking that CSS rule makes the canvas start flickering like crazy...uggh)</p> <h3>More Info</h3> <ul> <li>It works fine on the big TV player on the front page (in macOS Chrome)</li> <li>It works fine in HTML exports of carts (in macOS Chrome)</li> <li>It works fine in Firefox on macOS</li> <li>It works fine in Chrome on Linux</li> <li>It works fine in Chrome on Android</li> </ul> <p>anyway this is lame and I hope it magically starts working again soon :p</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=34995 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=34995 Thu, 08 Aug 2019 23:45:48 UTC
