Demogroups need Ascii nfo's!

category: offtopic [glöplog]
I would just let everyone that are insecure about what ascii is to take a look at asciis on www.thuglife.org and get ideas and inspiration;)

That was a nice thread for a change! :-) I think ascii is nice but of course not necessary.

I believe everybody here has seen Star Wars filmed in ASCIIvision, I'm just putting it here for the few unfortunate that haven't :-)

dip, i already knew your asciiwork from before, so im aware of your skills :)

certainly, if you abuse trends people are bound to get sick of them after a while (*wink* hjb-demos *wink* heh)

but why restrict the use of ascii in nfo's/diz'es ?

there has to be more practical uses for ascii, for good or worse.

oh. nice colly with potzie btw. :)

practical uses for Ascii ? Give me an example, I don't really know what you mean. :D

how many in here actually reads the .nfo file, unless the given demo doesn't run?
rasmus, good point

elend, well i mean for example mixing ascii with the overall design of a demo/intro ..

naaah.. I doubt that mixing ascii with the actual demo would look cool. :/

Maybe this would fit into the 0a000h Text Mode Compo :)

interesting really.
you're all always going on about how demos are art'n'shit, so why can't ascii be seen as art in itself?
stupid "practical use" shit.
i draw ascii for myself.
and yes, i do get requests. i just never draw them.
i always read infofiles. they're often big fun to read. ("children of the bong! this is the infofile!" etc)

well, _rm a.k.a. tekk a.k.a. mov4x, that's YOUR point of view, and i know hardly any other ascii artist who shares it. but i don't think here's a place to discuss it, we would just confuse people.

look, dipswitch, why the fuck should i care about some stupid "applied art"-thing? personally, i think that's just stupid, inane, worthless bullshit.
if something's called "art", it works alone, not in just some particular situation.
but yes, this is the wrong forum. but this is also pouet, and hardly anything stays on topic, like, ever.
oy dcs, nice colly, i didnt know bm was still alive since untill a while ago, sm0ke told me...

Why does 90% of the people here seem to have "14 yearold-attitude" towards everyone and everything?
huge gap to curse the fact that most familiar and talented ascii artists still reside on the amiga side of the demoszeen and not much happening in there. just cult stuff. btw feel free to send in logo requests xoxo plur/twisted ex zeusie/mystic

plaf, i think i have a released like 3 collies since 2003 so i don't know which one i was talking abuot. but in any case, if you need a logo drop me a line at dipswitch at kaoz dot org - or alternatively ask zuus because his logos are awesome and more people should use them!
