Hi everyone,

I have enhanced the Pico-8 cheat sheet based on the PDF version.
I included more info which I find useful.
This version fits best on a 1080p screen (or closer aspect ratio),
while the pdf version fits best on an A4/letter size paper.

revision: PICO-8 0.1.11g (rev:M)
fixed: shl, shr, for loops, character limit
added: p/enter, folder, mkdir, peek4, poke4, lshr, ceil, shrink code category, coroutine category, indent selection, cartdata category
enhanced: colors for visual clarity, screen coordinate, rearrange layout
removed: dark theme

revision v0.9.7: (PICO-8 version 1.11d)
fix: fullscreen shortcut: alt enter/F11

revision v0.9.6: (PICO-8 version 1.11d)
added: import, export, !=, tostr(), tonum()
modified: sfx(), fullscreen shortcut
enhanced: dark theme, music keyboard layout

revision v0.9.5: (PICO-8 version 1.10c)
Commandline: shutdown, reboot
Sprites: sget, sset
Loops: repeat, while
RAM memory layout and manipulation
Sprite flag: fget, fset
Screen: color
String manipulation: length, sub, cast, concatenation
PICO 8 manual link: https://www.lexaloffle.com/pico-8.php?page=manual
Rearranged more important stuff to the side, less important at the center
Made cheat sheet bottom taskbar proof when set as wallpaper
Rearranged Math by category for easier lookup
Changed colors on graphics for better clarity

revision v0.9.4:
added elseif

revision v0.9.3:
pal() to change palette color
palt() to change transparent color

revision v0.9.2:
add url to https://neko250.github.io/pico8-api/

revision v0.9.1:
fixed a typo on table literals

This is how I normally use this cheatsheet:

  1. set as wallpaper
  2. PICO-8 in window mode

Good stuff - thanks for creating this! :D

P#33423 2016-12-13 00:42 ( Edited 2016-12-13 05:42)

Very Useful, especially the math stuff!

P#33451 2016-12-13 12:33 ( Edited 2016-12-13 17:33)

A big thanks, and it's nice ! :)

P#33470 2016-12-13 20:45 ( Edited 2016-12-14 01:45)

Glad that you guys love this. ❤

Someday, someone will make the manual interactive.

P#33483 2016-12-14 09:19 ( Edited 2016-12-14 14:19)

Hi LightBWK, if you happen to make another version of this, it would be super helpful to have the memory map in there as well. I seem to always have the manual scrolled to that page.

Awesome doc!

It has been so long, I used to have "cheat sheets" I think may have come with some old compilers (software in boxes was so long ago!). Or maybe from some books? (books in stores at malls was so long ago!)

I've been trying to force feed pico-8.txt to my kids "look at the text, spend some time reading the text" but this is what they really need! I'm going to run it off on A4 and laminate it at Kinkos! hehehe great work and thanks very kindly!

P#38941 2017-03-31 22:10 ( Edited 2017-04-01 02:10)

cool. ty!

P#38945 2017-03-31 22:26 ( Edited 2017-04-01 02:26)

The cheatsheet is updated again. Yay!

Cool suggestion, which part of that that you think would be nice to add? ram layout or memory manipulation, can only add few more since space is limited

edit: I fit both in for v 0.9.5 :D

Don't print it yet, I'm still adding more stuff today and tomorrow. But making it a desktop wallpaper is highly recommended.

P#38973 2017-04-01 07:48 ( Edited 2017-04-01 16:12)

Darker theme option, the brightness of the original was a little distracting for me.
Feel free to rehost, modify, etc.

P#44306 2017-09-18 03:58 ( Edited 2017-09-18 08:13)

Ooh, good idea @imprimis
Was thinking the same thing every time I wake my laptop and got blinded!

Perhaps LightBWK could incorporate this/similar dark theme with the next update? :D
(along with refreshing the music "keyboard" to the latest version on API site)

P#44308 2017-09-18 07:50 ( Edited 2017-09-18 11:50)

@Liquidream @imprimis
Thanks for the suggestions.

New version is up. Enjoy. :D

@LightBWK: Perfect! Thank you :D

Thanks for this @LightBWK ! It's a thing of beauty.

P#45928 2017-11-06 10:32 ( Edited 2017-11-06 15:32)

It should be great to upgrade it for Pico-8 1.11 :)

P#46027 2017-11-08 21:23 ( Edited 2017-11-09 02:23)

Yes please, upgrade this for the latest Pico-8!

P#46161 2017-11-11 22:05 ( Edited 2017-11-12 03:05)

@JustBurner and @Glutnix
It is updated to 1.11d.
If I missed something, feel free to suggest.

Note: version number isn't PICO-8 version number

Afraid to ask but... where is the download link to that pdf? I'm probably staring right at it.

P#48487 2018-01-23 14:15 ( Edited 2018-01-23 19:16)

im also looking for some older reference materials, a sprite and map planner i believe

@LightBWK Thanks!

P#48598 2018-01-27 08:59 ( Edited 2018-01-27 13:59)

cheat sheet is 4k res now.
0.1.11G rev:M
added: shrink code part, card data, coroutines and many others

P#48816 2018-01-31 22:53 ( Edited 2018-02-01 04:29)

Thanks! I took your version and retyped/redrew it in Photoshop for my Thinkpad X230's native resolution of 1366x768.

Pico-8 Cheat Sheet (1366x768)

Let me know if any of you would like the PSD document.

Edit: Oh and I made it with a space for a right side taskbar in Windows 10.

P#51903 2018-04-22 18:48 ( Edited 2018-04-22 22:49)

That must be a lot of work!

Good but SHRINK CODE does not mention,

"Compressed: nnnn/15360."

That's important if you want to save a cart as an image to share it.
. . .

Coroutines are shown but not defined (and there is room to). Same with Special Callbacks.

P#57091 2018-09-25 14:23 ( Edited 2018-09-25 18:24)

Yeah it took me the better part of a week. But it’s been really useful! Thanks so much.

P#57962 2018-10-14 22:04 ( Edited 2018-10-15 02:04)

Thank you soooo much!

Is there a plain paper white background version? I would like to print it out on some printer paper so I can put it in a folder I can carry around.
Sorry for necro-ing ^^;

P#63476 2019-04-13 17:16

It's the perfect time to necro. Since the API has just been expanded with the release of version 0.1.12, the cheat sheet should be updated as well!
