Is there any chance there'll be an ARM64 port of bitsybox in the next update? Because bitsybox won't work on my Raspberry Pi 400 with Raspberry Pi OS 64-bit.
If I sound standoffish right now, I do apologize in advance for that.
Tiny bug report: Whenever there’s a fade transition the colors of the game become darker than before (or brighter, depending on whether it was a black or white fade), as if the transition never fully ends. I noticed this bug on macOs, didn’t test it on windows or Linux.
Thank you!! And thanks for the bug report - this bug is fixed in newer versions of the engine, but this is a good reminder that I need to update bitsybox :)
Did a small demo on how to use Bitsy for my college's Game Design club - everyone really liked it! Excited to see more!
that's awesome! :D
Please use stripe or Payoneer since it doesn’t use PayPal’s API. I then can use my credit card/Debit card.
thanks for letting me know! I've set up stripe, so hopefully that works for you :) let me know how it goes
i just love the idea of putting my favorite bitsy games into a little extractable and then passing that around to people like a mixtape
<3 I love that idea a lot!! if you do it I'd love to hear how it goes :D
awesome! An Android version would be amazing!
thanks for the suggestion y'all! I don't think it's something I'd have time to do soon, but I'll keep it in mind for the future :)
This is wonderful! Gamepad support! However, when I run it on my Mac I just get a blue screen. What am I missing?
oh no! :( this looks like a bug to me -- let me see if I can fix it!
this issue should be fixed now! :) try re-downloading the mac version and let me know if it works for you <3
AAAAAA it's finally here!! :D Awesome!! Playing around with it right now and it works great!! I love the fullscreen mode!!
yay!! awesome! that's great to hear :D
Also hey! Did you intend for the Windows application to have no icon like this? (pic attached)
(Sending just in case it's a bug and such)
thanks! it's not a bug - I just haven't have time to make / set up an app icon yet :) maybe in a future update!
I'm confused. What is this?
it’s a desktop app that can play bitsy games! :)
oh cool :)
