The welcome message to a BBS I frequent. The whole picture is ANSI compliant, complete with the 16 color EGA palette using the iCE color scheme (no blinking)...gah...

Anyway if this isn't appropriate for the gallery I'm cool with that, but I thought I'd see what y'all thought...

 Hey, can you post a link to the image? I'm sort of curious as to how it looks like.

ok guys, you are all correct. It does muddy the waters too much. I think it was allowed in because it looks like pixelart and the Mod was drunk at the time ; )

eghost (Level 6 Hitman) @ 10/9/2007 05:47
Believe me I was at odds about submitting it too...But it thought since we do have C64 pieces that follow a similar, though font free sort of convention, that I'd leave it up to the good folks here at PJ to make the call...DOS wan't as cool as C64 or the Amiga, but this is what we had back in the day...Again, if this needs to be pulled to maintain continuity as far as the gallery goes I will understand...

Hmm, I like ANSI and ASCII stuff, but being mostly build out of existing 'blocks' does it really belong here? To me it feels really confusing to see this here while most of the pics by Sondre don't seem to make it because it seems they happen to use a bit too many colours.

ooooooh controversial :O

If we start accepting ANSI stuff...can we also submit stuff that we've made with lego??

Its really very nice.. however im one of those people who arnt sure its pixel art..
Way to easy...

hmm, dunno if this is pixelart by definition.. i love ascii and ansi art - dont get me wrong at this, also did a few of these kind of pieces in the past, but though there are parallels to pixeling (limited palette, dithering, aa even, no brush tools =) it's still done in textmode and thus features text mode elements - to date i understood the whole pixeling thing as being defined as.. u know, happening under graphic mode conditions

No no, you have to totally geek out and compile your own or it's not as much fun!

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/8/2007 20:39
Hatch that link eghost posted works right too. The menus are a little screwed but quickly loads. I can't wait to play :D

Chuh, it does too work on OS X! http://img250.imageshack.us/img250/1976/picture1sn4.png
(20 points if you can name the piece I'm using as my desktop)

But anyway, you have to download the source and compile it yourself. But first, you have to install the Apple Developer Tools, X11, and Qt3. It's up to you whether it's worth it or not :/

And yeah, my computer's name is Marvin.

eghost (Level 6 Hitman) @ 10/8/2007 20:14
Sweet! Thanks gang!

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/8/2007 20:13
I did not add this another Mod did, just the same its in Happy Birthday!!!!!

eghost (Level 6 Hitman) @ 10/8/2007 17:57

Hmm...I'll see if I can find one and send it your way then...:)

*grins* Thanks for the props BTW...I'm not worthy...


Another something that can edit ANSI...It lets you surf BBS's too...


If that fails let me know and I'll send you a DOS version of ACiD Draw that I have on hand...


jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/8/2007 17:49
I tried that last night and downloaded the 4 different versions. None work on my Intel Mac :'(

*I wanna eet. btw, I downloaded the scarab one you made and will make my desktop pic after I bore of Buloght's new pixel which is kicking my monitors ass.

eghost (Level 6 Hitman) @ 10/8/2007 17:34

It's all good Jal...I'm completely cool if it goes back...I understand the process real well...Just figured I'd give it a run...If it works, great...If it doesn't that's cool too...



jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/8/2007 17:32
Hey, you didn't wait for a staff answer, Mr.Inpatient :(
As I said I'd like to let it in but I am still the minority.
Please don't get too bothered if it goes back, k.

*I wanna make some ANSI art on my Mac

Nice composition with a throw-up! I don't know what may be inappropriate aside that fonts are predefined, and I would like to see more of such type of art.
