I know, the title is stupid, but the first part is the name of a dentro and the second part is the name of a guy who called himself that. I am sure that the name for the dentro was chosen to get the attention of people. I guess it worked, because this Amiga Dentro won the demo competition at Scoopex’s CeBit’1993 demoparty held in Hannover/Germany in… right, 1993. I am sure that many of you also just checked this post only out because of the title of it. The funny thing is that it does not use any offending slang words at all. Did you notice that? “Vaginal” is a perfectly fine term used in human biology and “Massacre” is also not slang. It’s not a nice word, but so is “murder” or “war”.Just FYI for the non-geeks who are not familar with the demoscene. A dentro is the short version for “disk intro” and is basically something in between a full “demo” and a basic “intro” in computer scene terms. A dentro is more than just an intro, but less than a full blown demo. What a “demo” and “intro” is, you have to find out for yourself Here is the video of the dentro “Vaginal Massacre”.Alternatives: Link to the video at YouTube.com and Link to the video at Facebook.com this one has a better quality and higher resolution, but requires a Facebook account to view it. You don’t have to be a friend of mine via FB[…]

Perspective Projection on the Computer

Perspective projection is a means of representing something that is three-dimensional in a two-dimensional space, or in other words the representation of 3D in 2D, something we are all familiar with from the computer of course and also TV, photographs, paintings and drawings.A basic rule of perspective projection is that something that is further away from the viewer at a three-dimensional space is ???smaller??? in the two-dimensional representation and ???larger??? if it is closer.This holds true even for seemingly two-dimensional objects in the 3D world, like a flat painting from the front. Now everything in the real world is three-dimensional, but some things do not appear that way, or at least not much, to the human eye. If one dimension is too small, an object will appear two-dimensional to us.Axonometric ProjectionIf the object is really ???thick??? or ???deep??? or we know from experience that the object is that way, a representation of the object in 2D is enhanced if not only one side (or two dimensions) are shown, the width and the height, but also the part of the side that we determine as the ???depth???. Axonometric projection is the term used in geometry to describe the representation of an object with two or more ???sides??? visible to get a feeling of its width, height and depth.There are three main sub forms of axonometric projection, which are isometric, dimetric and trimetric projection. The difference between the three is the angle and perspective of the viewer to the object.In isometric projection[…]

It Was Time Again For A Clean-Up

As the title of this post already said, it was time again for a clean-up of my site RoySAC.com. Its content was growing significantely over the past months, which resulted in a very user unfriendly navigation and gave folks a hard time to find stuff on the site.HomepageThe first thing you will notice is a much more cleaner, shorter and straight forward homepage of RoySAC.com. Old content from the homepage was moved to existing pages (SAC homepage, About Me page), to its own page (Closed Society BBS) or simply deleted.ASCII Art AcademyThe ASCII art primer and the three styles of the underground text art scene articles can not be found in the top navigation anymore. I created a whole new section call the ASCII Art Academy. The academy refers to those two articles and to a lot more stuff, including the existing ASCII art tutorials by Solid and DiamonDie plus five new ASCII art tutorials and the History of ASCII Art article by Joan G. Stark.The new ASCII Art Academy can also be reached via the simple URL RoySAC.com/learn/.Art GalleriesI had already four art galleries for my own stuff. Three more were added when my site took over as Superior Art Creations homepage. Then I added two more with ASCII and ANSI art from other artists and don’t forget the special ASCII Nudes gallery and the ASCII morph pieces by Skylined. Stuff was all over the place. The galleries got a new “splash page” called… right, Art Galleries, which provides[…]

Welcome to the ASCII Art Videos

Published on: September 1, 2007

I added a new page to my site, which is dedicated to show videos that are about or related to text art and the subject that surrounds it, including the BBS scene, the demoscene and of course SAC, Superior Art Creations.Visit the new ASCII Art Videos Section at RoySAC.com/videos/.The section launched with 10 videos. The first one is “The Art of Textmode” – Text Art History, a presentation at the Assembly 2004 Demo party in Helsinki, Finland by Christian Wirth aka RaD Man. I referred to that video earlier already in a blog post of mine from February and decided to put it somewhere on the site where it can be found more easily.The second one is a short video by Creature of Hell/SAC – The Movie from 2001, showing off some of his pixel art skills. The main part of the section is made up by the six videos, which represent the complete content of Jason Scott’s 3 DVD long documentary titled “BBS – The Documentary”. No, it’s not an illegal copy of the DVD’s. Jason put them up himself on Google Video, because he released the documentary under the creative commons licensing model to make its content easier accessible. Jason does of course appreciate support for his cause(s), which are surrounding the subject of BBS and actually were the triggers for him to create the documentary in the first place. You can support him via buying the real DVDs, pressed, not burned, with nice wrapping and paper box[…]

Major Site Expansion and New SAC Section with Art Packs Page

I spent quite some time to update content at my RoySAC.com Website. I wrote a whole ASCII art primer article to give you an idea what I am talking about in general. It is for people who do know little or nothing about ASCII/ANSI art, the artscene and the warez scene it operated in.The biggest addition is the new SAC section, which is dedicated solely to everything related to Superior Art Creations, the art group, which I founded in 1994.You can find there SAC VGA logos created by SAC members for the group, as well as ANSI logos and ASCII logos, which were created for internal purposes of the group.The largest addition overall was the new SAC art packs releases page. It shows all 34 SAC art packs, which were released betweeen December 1994 and December 2005, the packs File_ID.diz, download links to the pack files, links to the SAC.NFO files for detailed information about each pack and a brief description for every release.The descriptions are more detailed than I had originally planned. Because of that, does the page act as SAC history page for now, until a better SAC history page is being created one day. There are some “holes” in it, but I hope to get the missing information and will then update the page accordingly.I updated pretty much every page of the site, including the home page, the Roy/SAC art page, the shop, the downloads section, the links page and the gallery pages (ASCII Art, ANSI Art,[…]
