All | Following | PICO-8 | Voxatron | General :: [Thread List]

I've just bought Voxatron and it looks really cool, but I can't launch either the vox or vox-dyn apps, i have no problem with the pico 8 ones
and yes i have set them to allow to run as exe

Tells me there is no application that can run 'shared library' files

i can run the windows installer on wine and use it fine but i would prefer to use the native version meant for linux

What you were told...

Welcome to the Factory! Today, you'll be watching over a really [Put a lie here - "Smile Bro!", 2020] place!
Good luck!

The Factory, Yay...

How to play

Number 1: Use the mouse to do nothing.

Number 2: Left-click to close/open doors! (close/open because you close the doors, not open them!)

Number 3: Right-click to use your computer.

Number 4: Double-click to do nothing

Number 5: Up-arrow to turn off the light/Put your hands over your eyes. (That's how you "Turn off the lights...")

Number 6: Good luck.

The feedback....................................

If you have any suggestions, please leave them in the comments.

The game.

I ordered Voxatron here, and got a receipt from Humble Bundle, but I did not receive a download link for it. I also tried putting in the order ID into the add products to accounts page but I had no success. Any reasons?

I had a lot of fun making this. This is the top-down adventure game tutorial I made for PICO-8, but re-written to work in Voxatron.

I had to make a few changes to how things worked, since it's in 3D, of course, and there are things that Voxatron doesn't have, like a map editor or its associated functions like mget() or mset(), or other functions like btnp() and so forth. But other than those few changes, it's basically the same code as from the tutorial.

Feel free to take it and make your own games with it. :)

Whenever I try importing a .p8 file into an object, Voxatron just instantly crashes with no error. I saw someone else post about this on the BBS to no helpful response :(

Hoping this gets fixed or hoping there's a known workaround

Is it possible to export Voxatron games to html/js like pico-8 can? I would like to host games on itch or my own website if possible. I saw that you can embed the player from the bbs, but that's less ideal than self hosting.

Every other file it automatically loads into the cart directory but it doesn't do that with the alpha demos and I can't find them anywhere in the game's folder. I can't find the carts online to download them

P#76751 2020-05-17 03:13

more info: I'm on linux, specifically the latest version of ubuntu. I don't know how to open the game.
I am very dumb, please help

How does one create a door, then link 2 instances of it across rooms? I've read the docs but an overview of what makes a door is not enough. Step-by-step, up to date instructions would really help. <nudge> @zep. :)

How come the Voxatron cartridges are laggier then plain old PICO-8 cartridges and when you move its slow af. Whenever I look at the GIF's of Voxatron, they look perfectly fine, but when I play a Voxatron cartridge, It's slow. Like my internet is perfectly fine, yet Voxatron STILL LAGS. Please let me know if you know why and how to fix it if you know either of those. Or at least how to stop the lag. Thank you. :)

This is created in response to the following questions:

An enemy gets defeated. How do I make it drop, say, a laser powerup?
The player steps on a button. How do I change the floor from water to jelly?
The player defeats an actor. How do I make chocolate appear?

Have fun

So I know how to make actors and objects appear at different times but how do I make them appear after something happens for example:
An enemy gets defeated. How do I make it drop, say, a laser powerup?
The player steps on a button. How do I change the floor from water to jelly?
The player defeats an actor. How do I make chocolate appear?
I could go on forever.
Does anyone know how to do this?

I got the voxel itch again after so long. This is a tweetcart version of an effect I'll very probably use in the future. The code is slightly altered from what I posted on Twitter because when running a cart without a scene, the camera is not properly reset.

I also added the zoom transition that'll be used, you can see it working by pressing up/down.

Here's the code

function _draw()
for z=48,63 do

Sorry if this has already been posted, got a false positive for virus detection on Win10 when installing voxatron 0.3.5b.

Microsoft Windows 10 Home
Version 10.0.18362 Build 18362

Unsure if there's any other info I should jot down to help reproduce the issue, or if this is a big issue at all, but I thought I should report the issue in case it was important!
