I haven't found anything, but I am trying to convert my existing music tracked in PICO-8 to a .MOD or related tracker format.
Anyone have any pointers? I'd rather not compose everything by hand again but...
Hello everyone. Today I wrote a script to swap Sprites positions without messing with the Map. Very handy to reorganise your sprite sheet. And Flags will follow. Here's how it works:
1- Make a backup
First thing first: make a backup of your p8 file!
This is important, as you can screw things up real quick if you do not pay attention.
2- Get the script
Create an empty file named "swapspr.lua" that you'll put alongside your p8 file.
Copy/paste this script to "swapspr.lua" and save it:
function swapspr(n1,n2) for i=0,7 do local p1=i*64+n1*4+448*flr(n1/16) local p2=i*64+n2*4+448*flr(n2/16) local b1,b2=peek4(p1),peek4(p2) poke4(p2,b1) poke4(p1,b2) end local f1,f2=fget(n1),fget(n2) fset(n1,f2) fset(n2,f1) for x=0,127 do for y=0,127 do if mget(x,y)==n1 then mset(x,y,n2) elseif mget(x,y)==n2 then mset(x,y,n1) end end end cstore(0x0000,0x0000,0x7fff) end ---------------------
3- Prepare your p8 file
Open your p8 file and add those two line at the very begining of your code:
#include swapspr.lua swapspr(3,6)
In this example, we are swaping positions of sprites numbers 3 and 6:
Run your p8 file and that's it!
Your sprites position have swaped while keeping their flags:
And (magic) the Map didn't change:
Run this script as long as you need to swap positions.
Don't forget to remove the two lines you added at the start of your code once you have finished.
I hope this will save a lot of time for the Pico-Eighters like me that don't think about sprite order until the need to save space and tokens...
Right now, it only swaps 8x8 sprites, but that can be modified easily.
I have an idea-- lets say i have a voxel model with colors blue and brown. Is lUA/shader/something else
able to have the blue voxels behave/look like water and the brown like dirt? Is there another idea for this? id like the existing properties be linked to the colors of the model!! Well, keep on voxing!
Finally managed to get somewhere by the end of this weekend (10:30pm) after setting myself the challenge of learning how to start building the old raycasting engine ala Wolfenstein 3D!
It's a start, more to come! Just found Pico-8 on Tuesday last week, saw the cool things people were making, purchased it immediately, and totally loving it to pieces!!
