ASCII Nudes Gallery Re-Design

Comments: No Comments
Published on: April 2, 2014
It was time for a re-design of my ASCII Nudes gallery. I had 3 main goals in mind. Make the original photographs or pictures used by the artists as reference accessible directly within the gallery. Previously those were only available via an older blog post of mine. Allow easier navigation of the gallery. I accomplished that by providing full keyboard control throughout the gallery and by providing the ability to jump to the next piece directly from the detail overlay screen, without the need to go back to the main gallery grid. As mentioned in 2. already. I am using overlays now instead of annoying pop-ups or new browser windows.   The Boss-Key feature is still around, although not via the big red prominent button as before. Now a simple pressing of the letter “b” on your keyboard will do the trick. If you press “b” for a second time, you will be back where you left of before. Keyboard Shortcuts Available in the Detail Overlay: a = show ASCII Version p = show Photo (if available) s = show Side by Side (if available) + = (The + on the Key Pad) Increase Font Size (only available in ASCII View Mode) – = (The – on the Key Pad) Decrease Font Size (only available in ASCII View Mode) d = Download Original ASCII Text File Arrow Right = Next Piece Arrow Left = Previous Piece ESC = Close Overlay h = Show Keyboard Shortcuts Help b = BOSS Key[…]

Batch MS DOS ASCII to Web Converter Script 2

Published on: January 25, 2010
This is an update to my  little script that converts MS DOS ASCII files, such as NFO’s  or FILE_ID.DIZ text files (Code Page 437, USA) to ASCII files with HTML encoded Unicode characters and also to Unicode text for the use in MS Windows. The HTML encoded ASCII files can be used to display the ASCII art, specifically the “High ASCII” or block ASCII art on a web site. The script is written in VBScript, but the release package also includes a Windows executable, which is the VBScript converted via VBSEdit by Adersoft. I used the same script to prepare the ASCIIs in my text art galleries on my web site, such as: My ASCII Art Gallery My Early ASCII Art Gallery Various ASCII Art by Others or my FILE_ID.DIZ Collection just to name a few. You can download the script here:   ROY-BATCHCONVERT-ASCII2WEB2.ZIP (700KB) The Release NFO File ▄▄▄▄▄▄ ▄▄▄▄▄ ▄▄▄▄▄ █▄ ▀███████████▄▄ ▄ ▄▄ ▄▄██████████▀████▀▀███▄ ▄▄████████▄ ▀█▓█ ▀████ ▄███ ▄▄▓▓▓█ ▄██████▀▀ █▒▓█ ███▀ █▓▓█ █████▀▀ ██▀█▀▄ ██▓█ █▓▓██ ██▓▓█ █▓▓▒▒▓█ ███▓██▀ ██▓██▐██ █▓▓▌ ██▓█▀ ▐▀ ▐ ▌ ████ ▐█▒▓▓█ ▄▄████▄ ██▓█ █▓▒░▒▓▌ █████ ████ ██▌ ▐▓▓█▌ █▓▓▓▌ ▌ ▐ ▌ ████ ▄▄█▓█▀▀ ▄██▀▀ ███▐███ █▓▒░▓█ ▀███▄ ▀ ▄███▀▄▄▄ ██▓██ █▓▒█ ▀▀▀▄▄▄ █ ▐▌ ▀██▀███▄▄ ███▌ ▐▓▒▓▌███▄ ██▓▓█ ▄▄▄ ▀▀████▄▄ ▀███▌ ▀▀▀██████ █▓▒█ ▀▀ █ █ ▀█ ▀█▄ ▀█ █▓▒▓█▀███▄ ███▓█ ▐█ ▀▌ ▀█▓▓█ ███ ▀████ █▓▓█ █ ▐▌ ▐▌ █ █▌ █▄ ▄█▒░▒█▌ ▀███████▌ ▀▌ █ █▒▓█▐██ █ ▀█ ██▓▓▌ ██▄ █ █ ▐▌ ▐█ █████▓░▒▓█ ▀▀████ █▄▄█▌[…]

A Tale About A Group Called Superior Art Creations

Published on: January 12, 2010
The recent unfortunate events surrounding SAC were not only a surprise for me and a disappointment, but also caused me to stand back for a little and reflect on what happened over the past 16 years when a friend of mine and me started the group 16+ years ago. I did not plan to write as much in detail about stuff as I ended up eventually, but what is new? Hehe. Yes, this tale is written in a personal narrative and describes things the way I experienced them and remember today. This means that it is probably full of errors and bias’ that I might or might not was aware of. I already wrote about how I got started with creating art. You can read all about it here. How it Started I co-founded SAC in December 1994 together with Hetero, whom I had just met in person for the first time a couple weeks earlier. I discussed with him the lack of a German art group and also the lack of an art group that has closer ties to the Warez scene. At that time the requests that I received just for NFO file logos and designs increased significantly. Instead of sitting around and just whining about those facts, we decided to start something. He and I knew some other local artists who were “independent” at the time. We asked them if they would join a local art group and that’s how it all started. The name for the[…]

I have not posted at my blog for a long while (in comparison to the months before). This was actually not because of the lack of things to write about. There was plenty for me to write, but it seems that I tend to write less, the more is happening. Maybe because of the lack of time that usually concurs with more events happening or maybe it is just that I think too much about all the stuff I should write about that I forget to actually write something altogether.  Well, I need to think about that one :). I decided now to write about each thing that I consider noteworthy only briefly and consolidated in this and another post to follow. Each thing by itself would probably have warranted its own post, but not at this time. Downloads Section Expanded    I expanded the downloads page of my website to include two new sections. 1. Music Trackers tools for Windows and DOS. See Tracker Downloads Tracker music is a staple of the classic demo scene before the computers became powerful and advanced enough to use fully digital recordings of music for programs, demos and games. It was also the limitations of hard disk space and memory that lead to the development of alternatives such as the “Tracker”. The most famous known tracker software is probably the program “Sound Tracker” for the Commodore Amiga. Its file format, the classic “.MOD”, is still a pseudo standard today, including on the PC[…]
