asciisprites - 4

miezebieze (mieze)



Some time ago, I examined a game, where the data was completely plain text. All the images were stored in ascii strings and converted to an (monochrome) image.

I really dislike binary data, so I tried to make polychromatic images from a string and a dict with the colours. I didn't succeed at first...

Then, a week ago, I began with making a new game - And I really want to finish it; just to actually have something done! (My first try at a real game was not so successful.) So I dusted off this here (It was only a whole lot of None before.) and extended it. But then I wanted to make easy to control animations. So I made that and also classified the Image stuff, to have better control and easily recompile the image.

Examples are included. Just download and execute it.

Keys: Space, Left, Down, Right

Also the example has some more comments than needed, to be compatible with bloodier beginners than me.


The file was broken... And now the description was removed? I really kinda hate this site. Okay. I figured it out now.
