Presentation


Overview

Forget about pixels, let’s talk characters. This session explores the creative world of native machine textmode in Flash, from the absurd to the practical. Peter, a self-professed code art addict, will chronicle his work and shed some light into the often obscure scene of ANSI Art, terminals, textmode demos, and ASCII games. Along with experiments written entirely in ActionScript, much of the work demoed in this session will explore the vast possibilities opened up by Alchemy and the true programming home of textmode: C/C++.
