ASCII Art

Monday, November 10th, 2008


One of the nice things about flash has always been the ability to get something up and running quick and dirty like. I’m not sure why I always loved ascii generators, but I do and one of the designers at work has been talking about ascii stuff so I decided to build one out. 15 minutes later I had one up and running. I do wish flash was a little faster sometimes, as I can’t get quite as high of a sample rate as I’d like for a full screen experience, but overall it does pretty good. I am guessing pixelbender will really help with this kind of stuff. You can grab the class here
