My first attempt to do a card game in pico8.
Entirely done on my pocket chip device during my two week vacation in egypt sitting by the pool watching the blue sky.
Sounds crazy? Yes, i guess.
Very cool! I don't see too many card games these days. Keep up the good work! I'm always happy to find a fellow CHIPster :)
P.S. (very long for a P.S. but I need to know :D )
I would like to know how your pocket CHIP development experience was. I've tried making a full game on my pocket CHIP before but it is very difficult since many of the required key shortcuts for syntax characters(like commas) are replaced by the special pico-8 characters that I rarely use. Do you know if there is a setting or a line in a file that I can change to make the keyboard shortcuts do what they labeled to do? any serious development is pretty tedious when you have to(repeatedly) copy and paste each comma instead of just being able to use the SHIFT key properly. Or write code in a separate text editor. It's not impossible just very annoying and it slows me down.
Sure, the keyboard is a bit annoying. :-)
I try to keep the code and all vars as short as possible. there are some useful shortcuts to jump to the next function in your code. scrolling is the most time wasting thing using pocket chip.
as i said it was a vacation project. while lying by the pool, the beach or in bed it was the only option. if you have a desk i suggest to buy a foldable bluetooth keyboard or get pico8 for pc and work on a small notebook.
So either an external keyboard or no commas? maybe we should let @zep know that it's an issue so he could make some kind of fix. Not sure how that will work since NTC is gone unless we just have to install through the web like the raspberry pi.
So [Shift]+[.] does enter a comma for you? It does not work for me. Neither does any other shift combination.
When I press shift with a key then it enters one of the special pico-8 chars like the button symbols or the weird emoji like characters that zep added to pico-8 instead of entering what it should. My problem is not the physical act of pressing the button. My problem is that it's currently impossible for me to enter a comma using the pocketchip keyboard(but only while I'm running pico-8). There must be a setting somewhere that I set by accident. It's not that I'm too lazy to use shift :)
