Another ASCII Art File Type Plugin


I Like Pi

Recommended Posts

I found myself in need of an ASCII art generator, but sabrown's and some online services didn't give me what I wanted. So I wrote my own. :)

Compiled DLL:

Put it in the FileTypes directory.

 

Download >> AsciiArtFileType.zip

The right hand side shows the grayscale representation of the ASCII. To see the actual text, you have to complete the save and open the file with a text editor like Notepad.

The horizontal and vertical cell sizes represent the number of pixels that go into one character. Since characters are usually taller than they are wide, you should set the vertical cell size to be higher than the horizontal cell size.

Sample:

From the first post...

Compiled DLL:

Put it in the FileTypes directory.

Or do you mean the image?

To see the actual text, you have to complete the save and open the file with a text editor like Notepad.

....and note from MadJik's post above that you have to File > Save As and make the file extension a text one (*.txt).

I'm not sure if the .txt extension is automatically available from the dropdown list or if you have to type it in manually. If it's not showing up then try the manual method.

Edit: Just tried it. Found the extension listed under Ascii Art (*.txt) in the dropdown list.

BTW: You should upgrade to 3.5.10 ;)

Yes, this is a very old thread started in 2008 and the creator of the Plugin has not logged in since 2011.
