RE: Convert bitmap image to ascii

Hey thanks.
Couldn't do ImageMagick as I need a new OS so I purchased Graphic Converter for $35 and it did the magick I needed to do.

So I got this 1983 Custom Ascii Character set batch converted to
256 individual 3D objects, dropped into a game level and blinking
different colors and shades.
Yay! 11,000 + polys of wonder.
Flash Movie of that here!

And then I parsed a screenshot of the old computer running in emulation.
Here's the console output at like a 2 point font size.

Having trouble mapping that back to the old computer though.
I'll have to clean up my code and post it.

So now, FLTK has some kind of embedded graphic format yes?
Where does the strange data for those images come from?
I've seen it in some scripts and it just confuses me.

So last year I was working on a little graphics creator for the old computer
in murgaLua and had planned to do more with it, but things happened.
Using pngs I was not able to deal with colors and the mouse is
drawing in the window even when you are choosing characters.

You can get the binaries and scripts in a zipped file, as long as see sample images in this directory

I'm pretty much aiming at a universal grid based mapping tool.
Of course I'm straying form universal all the time.
Right now its a world of zombies mapper. muahaha.

Anyway thanks in advance for any ideas or infos about such things.
