Got things mostly working. (but still borked on right walls and cornes) Placeholder camera implemented, want to add dead zone and false boundaries to it eventually.
Taking an official break of sorts while I contemplate robust collision (and probably slopes) offline. I've made some progress on the theme/flavor, but I'm still keeping that to myself while I hammer on the basics.
Strange, editing the post I got the bbs to eat all my previous version. Broken tags below.
0.15 - Here it's half-working with all sorts of fun debug displays added.
0.14 - First pass at something resembling collision; completely broken for the moment. But don't offer assistance yet! When I get back home I'll have time to dig in it and see what has transpired.
ver 0.13 - I needed a little air control, too
ver 0.12 - Here, have a jump
ver 0.1 - just trying to lay out some of the basics - no collision, vertical movement, or really anything so far.
In my opinion, pico-8's musical notes don't go nearly low enough.
In addition, its UI assigns numerical values to notes' octaves which are off by 2. (A middle C in reality lies at the bottom of octave 4. In pico-8, its octave is labeled as 2)
Personally, I would love pico-8 to at least cover the range of a traditional 4-string bass guitar, down to e1. (in the 1.8 UI that note would be labeled as octave -1) Even better would be getting all the way to octave 0.
(also, I'm aware I can put a track in "slow" mode.)
