ASCII art on the Beeb

Post by lurkio » Thu Jun 13, 2019 9:21 pm

I never saw much ASCII art for the Beeb BITD, and there doesn't seem to be much around now either, which is a shame because a lot of the stuff on asciiart.eu looks fine on the Beeb (once you substitute CHR$92 for CHR$96), especially if the text file uses the MS-DOS/Windows newline (CRLF):
:idea:

EDIT: Copy and paste the following program into BeebEm:

Code: Select all

10 *FX15
20 MODE0:VDU19,0,7;0;19,1,0;0;12
30 REPEAT
40  G=GET
50  IF G=96 G=92
60  IF G=13 VDU10
70  VDU G
80 UNTIL FALSE

Run the program, and then copy and paste the following text into BeebEm:

Code: Select all
