ATE – Ansi Text Editor 1.0Beta

Categories: ANSI / ASCII, TEXT ART, TOOL
Comments: No Comments
Published on: June 18, 2014
I finally got around to write this tool. It was on my to-do list for quite some time now. I already wrote ANSI converters (link 2) and most recently a Font Tool for the old MS-DOS ANSI Editor TheDraw (Font Tool Homepage), so it was only a natural progression to write something like this editor. ANSI Text Art Editor is an ANSI text editing tool very similar to PabloDraw, ACiDDraw, TheDraw, TundraDraw, TetraDraw or AnsiDraw, but unlike the better half of them for Windows 32bit and 64bit Computers and not MS DOS. For the folks who hate reading, visit the special ATE – Ansi Text Editor Home Page to download the Program. The Editor is still in Beta and not 100% stable. There are also bugs here and there which I am currently working on eliminating. Nevertheless, I think the current state of the tool allows me to make it public, especially to be able to get some feedback, comments and suggestions from you guys out there, who are still into good old ANSI/ASCII Text Art like me :). Post them here at the blog or use my sites contact form. You will recognize many features from the mentioned editors. This tool has some unique features of its own though, such as: ANSI Font System (to Create, Edit and Use Custom ANSI Fonts) similar to the one provided by TheDraw (but without the limitations in width/height). Import and Export option for TheDraw fonts. Smart Vertical & Horizontal Flip Tool Flat[…]

RTN & Sidekiq Pro Art Requests

Published on: May 22, 2014
Hi There Folks, Carsten aka Roy/SAC speaking again. This time about Text Art (yeah, can you actually believe it? hehe). It has been ages.. or well at least 2-3 years that I fulfilled any art requests, but yeah, believe it or not, I actually managed to finish two requests for ASCII art, which I both received via PM at DeviantArt. The first one was a complete NFO file design for a group called “Reverse The Noob”, short RTN. Never heard of the group before, so no clue what kind of stuff they release. I decided to go with a Newskool ASCII design (I did that for both ASCII requests actually). Next to the logo I also created the NFO file body for the release information and member lists etc. The second request was somewhat commercial in nature, although I myself did not get paid for this (that’s a principle of mine, remember?*). It’s for a developer tool called “Sidekiq Pro“. Here is what the web site for the tool has to say about itself: Sidekiq Pro is a collection of useful functionality for the open source Sidekiq library. The tools costs $75 per year (subscription model). There you have it. * Note: I wanted to clarify this statement a bit more. Yes, I don’t do art for hire (getting paid to do it), however, I do accept and appreciate voluntary donations to support “the cause” and to help paying the site hosting fees etc. One does not have to do[…]

… And More TheDraw ANSI & ASCII Fonts!

Categories: ANSI / ASCII, Collections
Comments: No Comments
Published on: April 19, 2014
Welcome back Folks, I posted only a couple weeks ago about the re-design and extension of my TheDraw ANSI/ASCII Fonts Collection. But since then, the collection was expanded significantly again. The total number of Fonts was boosted from 112 to 141 (That’s an addition of 29 Fonts)! About half of the new additions are fonts that I found in my existing archives scattered here and there. The other half are fonts that I created new myself. Many of those new fonts that I created for TheDraw are fonts that were created for the ASCII Font Tool “Figlet” using the FIGFonts Standard. Figlet only supports ASCII fonts (no Color) so I created colored versions of some of the fonts all by myself. Most of the new additions that I created are fonts that are complete or almost complete, which is usually rare for existing TheDraw fonts, meaning that next to standard letters and maybe numbers, also a lot of special and punctuation characters are available for those fonts. Check out the updated TheDraw Fonts Collection of mine here! Here is list of most of the additions that I created myself, previously not available as TheDraw Font anywhere. COLOSSAL.TDF.ZIP FRAKTUR.TDF.ZIP ROMANNC2.TDF.ZIP ROMANNS.TDF.ZIP ROMANNSC.TDF.ZIP BLOODLG.TDF.ZIP BLOODLGC.TDF.ZIP COSMIC.TDF.ZIP BLOODSMC.TDF.ZIP BLOODSML.TDF.ZIP GRAFFITI.TDF.ZIP LARRY3D.TDF.ZIP STRIPES.TDF.ZIP STRIPESS.TDF.ZIP USAFLAG.TDF.ZIP PEPPER.TDF.ZIP I hope you enjoy it, Cheers!

TheDraw Fonts Collection Revamp and Extension

Comments: No Comments
Published on: March 28, 2014
Hello Chaps, I already added the Fonts collection for the ANSI Text Editor “TheDraw” back in 2010. Back then I already thought that it would be nice to provide the information for each font, which characters each font supports and to provide a preview to get a good idea how each font looks like. When I launched the collection only a few fonts had this information available and then my site went black for about 2 years and that was that. Well with the re-launch of my site, many of my collections became under scrutiny, I remodeled the navigation and started using JQuery scripts for state of the art overlay effects and dynamic interactions. When I was looking at the Fonts collection for TheDraw, I remembered my original intention and ideas and decided to finally realize it reality. As of now, I show for every font in my collection the available characters. It’s shown in the listings and enlarged for better visibility if you hover with the mouse of a set (see screen shot). While I was at it, I also updated my already existing 2 ANSI and 2 ASCII Fonts as well as 6 fonts by other folks where I added missing characters etc. I created myself 5 entirely new ANSI (colored) fonts to expand my collection. Here are some previews of them. Also shown some of the other updated/extended fonts. LSTSOULS.TDF.ZIP ONKELZ.TDF.ZIP ROYFIVER.TDF.ZIP ROYFOUR.TDF.ZIP ROY-OLDS.TDF.ZIP ROYAFNT1.TDF.ZIP ROYFNT2.TDF.ZIP ROYAFNT1.TDF.ZIP ROYAFNT2.TDF.ZIP DONNOW.TDF.ZIP CODER.TDF.ZIP SPACELNK.TDF.ZIP   Instead of just bulk and[…]
