On the second floor, what is the thing walking around?
Sometimes it's like this : /\, but others it's like this: @
31.10.2007 07:25
by  Flup

Cfive - that's just some random thing walking around your house.

And I meant supernova457. (But I don't think he's around any more?)

About the /\, it only turned into @ on one frame.

Are you talking to me? Because I have no idea who "chobo" is.
20.01.2008 19:05
by  Bluesboyjr

Chobo is the shortened form of the name CrazyHobo. While you were doing whatever unasciimated things
you were doing while you were away, he popped up and started insulting Asie, rating Asciis one and
commenting weird confusing things. He disappeared, and someone (I believe it was ddgc) worked out
his password (it was something like qwerty) and started to remove the spam and one-ratings. However,
I don't think he's quite finished, as Chobo had multiple accounts.
So there's Chobo in a nutshell!

We've started production of the Reasoner ships, and we will soon send them out.
We've also began creating the Small Battlestars, our small Engagers. If anything small gets out
of hand, this'll take care of them.
First production:
Armed with a small Laser Cannon, these will be our Prime Attackers. We are also developing two more
Ships, the Battlecruiser and the Shuttling. Production of the Shuttling shall be finished soon, but
the Battlecruiser will take more time to create.

19.05.2014 19:57
by  gecko.jsc

Yep, I checked earlier and there is indeed an "audio" field that can be attached to frames
in the animation data, like so:

"audio": {
    "ogg": "/recipe.ogg"

Need to verify if that can be imported directly or if it's only possible through some official
GUI that has not been implemented yet.
19.05.2014 21:21
by  asiekierka

You can. But please do not use the function yet. While the playback side is stable, I want to add
code to ensure all audio files are available in both MP3 and OGG, as well as hosted here. Also, a
proper GUI.
20.05.2014 00:14
by  Flup

Audio for asciimations?! Wow. Seven years ago, I could never have imagined that Asciimator.net might
go this far. Well done, Asiekierka.
20.05.2014 14:27
by  CTDSThree

Anddd..... Flup's back on.
   Now if only it could be upgraded to support multiple colors...

A new display on bottom could be like:
[set color] [all text]<--Just like before, sets all text to
  ^                         that color.
This would set your typing color as specified, and you can type with that color, leaving the already
displayed text the same.

Backgrounds wouldn't have this, it would be confusing.

   If you own this site now, and you edited the whole site drastically, can you implement this in
the ASCIImator editor? I've been thinking about what it would be like, and it could open up
possibilities for multicolored ASCIImations without having to space each color between frames. You
could put all the colors on one frame!
   This would be good for collabs like The Abstract Challenge.
20.05.2014 17:12
by  Zeus guy

Asie already said that wouldn't be implemented
20.05.2014 17:38

yeah, part of the charm of ASCIImator is the 2 colour restriction :)
20.05.2014 19:09

20.05.2014 19:22
by  asiekierka

And my point stands.
20.05.2014 22:30
by  Flup

Incredibly time-intensive to create though they may be, it'd be interesting to see some
multicoloured asciimations. However, in many art forms, the restrictions make the art; I suspect
that would be the case here as well.
22.05.2014 08:20
by  AweAndWonder

Really, it will *never* be considered? I actually agree with CTDS2.  Before colors in ASCIImations,
people were restricted with black on white.  I understand that multicolored frames can become an
inconsistent mess when people don't know what to do with them.  Similarly, it is easier to draw
a portrait with graphite than to use colored pencils.  But, if we could select with a checkbox
whether or not an entire ASCIImation is two colors per frame only (to prevent inconsistencies in
open source ASCIImations or to prevent accidentally inserting more than one color in a frame), I
would love to use multiple colors in a series or in one shot ASCIImations.  (Or we could even make a
separate section of the website for such ASCIImations...)  It would open up animations to new
possibilities.  That is to say, I'm not sure I would want the Abstract Challenge to be
multicolored in that way, unless we were to start a whole new challenge, but I can think of many,
many other applications for it.  I understand there is a charm to two color frames, but I don't
like the idea of restricting creativity for the sake of uniformity.  Especially since this is THE
place for ASCIImations.  I know of no other social space for ASCIImating on the internet.  I mean,
if you don't want to, anyone could always make multicolored ASCIImations offline, but offline
work tends to just gather dust.  :/  I'm just saying that I don't think the idea should be
tossed out indefinitely.

Or is the reason you don't want to implement multiple colors per frame mostly a technical one? 
In which case, I totally understand you not wanting to spend lots of time and energy on something
you're not enthusiastic about.
22.05.2014 09:02
by  AweAndWonder

Sorry for all the rambling guys, especially to Flup (and her inbox).  (I'm kind of a wordy
person if you can't tell.) I actually really wanted to suggest this later.  But I don't
remember it ever being talked about when I was on here, so I don't remember the exact reason
why it was turned down.

The TLDR is: I disagree with just not wanting multiple colors a frame, but I do understand if
it's just not possible with the current editor and/or is too difficult to implement.

But really, for now, I'm cool with all the new updates so far.  After an entire year of being
down, the site is not only back up, but we're also getting upgrades! :)  That's why I
didn't really want to suggest anything else until we've had some time to enjoy the latest
stuff Asie added.

It may be considered at a later time. There are two main issues with implementing the multicolor
system, and they are not really technical.

The first one is adapting the user interface to allow it. ASCIImator Pro's codebase does not
really allow to add things such as square selection boxes easily yet, and better editing is one
thing I would like to focus on.

Second, it's the charm. Multicolored ASCIImations might ruin a lot of the charm of the site, I
tried multicolor ASCIImating and the novelty factor wears off very quickly.

Okay thanks

I understand it not being on the to-do list, since a lotta things are probably higher priority. 
Selection boxes would be awesome!  Maybe even "rotate" and "flip" buttons? :3 
But I don't wanna start suggesting too much... :P

I kinda do disagree with the second point.  I think it's more than just novelty, but I'll
try it offline before I come to a conclusion ;)

I don't see the point of rotate and flip buttons...
I also think it would ruin ASCIImator's charm.
Also, would we really need selection boxes? You can just highlight text and drag it to another spot.

Rotate and flip wouldn't change the result, it will just make the process faster.
Multi-coloured ASCIIs have a completely different result.
I wouldn't mind a flip option tho.
23.05.2014 18:03
by  CTDSThree

What would the flip and rotate option do?

I don't even see a point in what the heck something like that would be useful for...
24.05.2014 03:03
by  AweAndWonder

...Seriously?  Flip and rotate would be useful for the Abstract Challenge or if you want any kind of
symmetrical movement.  Like what I'm doing in my next addition to the challenge.  I had to use
JavE to flip and rotate.  I mean, I don't mind using JavE, but it can make things sorta more

And selection boxes would be useful if you want to modify only one area that is in the middle of
multiple lines.

Just because *you* can't find a use for it, doesn't mean others won't.

And I really don't think multiple colors would ruin the charm.  The site itself has multiple
colors if you think about it.  And there will always be noobish animations whether people have the
color option or not.

I kinda wish we could have discussions like these in the forums instead of filling up Flup's
comment section.  lol  But I know it's kinda hard when we have to deal with spambots.

Meh meh meh meh meh. I don't think this stupid red guy is a good person, he's just a
spambot. He can't find a use for this stupid unadded feature that turns slashes on the left
into backslashes on the right. Blah blah blah. Call me all you want, I'm a person too.

Actually, I think rotate and flip buttons could come in handy for making speech for upside-down
people. And I do feel like selection boxes would be better than highlighting some lines and all the
characters in them, and messing up the whole frame.

So, yeah, a retort for the insult, and a compliment for telling me that you agreed with that use and
persuading me to do so too. Just like a normal human being. :)

P.S. No. I'm not noobish. Actually, I'm quite smart.
24.05.2014 14:18
by  AweAndWonder

I... didn't call you a spambot.  I was saying we're having a conversation on Flup's
animation (and thus we're all probably unintentionally spamming her inbox with reply emails),
and the forums would be a more appropriate place for it, if they were not filled with spam from
actual spambots right now.

When I suggested flipping/rotating, I was talking about the locations of the characters, not the
characters themselves. Though character flips would be an interesting addition too, for those we can
find opposites of.

And when I said noobish animations, I wasn't talking about you.  Actually I was referring to
some of the Guest animations we get.

Oh, like FUN GUN MAN?
I showed my friend this site and he made a few things.
25.05.2014 10:01
by  AweAndWonder

I didn't mean anyone in particular!  I was just saying I don't think we'd get a
dramatic increase in noobish animations if we had multiple colors per frame.
25.05.2014 15:02
by  CTDSThree

No, I mean his animation FUN GUN MAN.

HOW will it prevent an increase in guest animations?
25.05.2014 16:04
by  AweAndWonder

I wasn't trying to single out any person or any animation!  In fact, I don't remember
seeing any noobish animations in a while.

And I didn't say that at all!  I just said that I don't think we'd see a consistent
drop in quality animations if were were to have the option to put multiple colors in a frame.  (And
if there was a toggle that had that off by default.)  Sure, I think it would take a while to get
used to, like any new feature, but afterwards, experienced members would either avoid the feature or
learn to use it well.  At least, that's what I think.

And not all guest animations are noobish.  Some are well made.  They just can be sometimes when
someone is new to making animations.  I know mine weren't as good when I started out.
25.05.2014 19:39
by  CTDSThree

I never said guest animations were noobish...
If that feature was there, I would totally use it.

How's the sound coming along, asie?
29.05.2014 23:02
by  Flup

Flipping/rotation sounds like it might be quite useful.

Sound is going to be one of the later features.
Asie wants to focus on fixing up the technical parts of the site first.

Weird that this is the only ASCIImation on ASCIImator that has sound.

by  asiekierka

Except for the dancingMEGAmix! That's... technically not an ASCIImation in the same sense,

by  CTDSThree

How do i make an asciimation that has sound? I know I asked that already, but I think that I only
got vague answers about really hard coding or something like that. I want to know how to do sound
asciis! So it can be like ASCIImator Hatena!

When will the sound function be stable?

I replicated the code that Gecko posted to put a sound in, placed it in the JSON data for an ascii I
was doing, and replaced "/recipe.ogg" with an .mp3 that I had downloaded and converted to
.ogg. When I imported the data, it didn't lose any work, but when I tested the ascii for
sounds, it was silent. The current JSON data had no trace of the sound code I had put in.

Does the import button not work or something? Am I doing something wrong with the code?

Here's the code I imported:
    "speed": 100,
    "loop": false,
    "width": 20,
    "height": 10,
    "style": {
        "family": "courier new",
        "size": 12,
        "weight": "normal",
        "lineHeight": "120%"
    "metadata": {
        "frames": 2,
        "duration": 2
    "content": [
            "repeat": 1,
            "fontColor": "#000000",
            "backgroundColor": "#ffffff"
            "audio": {
                "ogg": "/Potato_Knishes_OFFICIAL.ogg"
            "text": "\n\n\n\n

In the export box,
            "audio": {
                "ogg": "/Potato_Knishes_OFFICIAL.ogg"
was missing.

Please let me know what I can do to solve this issue.

I *might* have removed the ability to do so for regular users for copyright concern reasons, but I
don't remember now.

I just came back and realized this asciimation has sound now.  It's an excellent feature,
really livens up the animation! Are there any issues getting in the way of implementation for
29.10.2016 10:32
by  asiekierka


1) The ASCIImator editor codebases aren't that great. Adding things to them would be tough.
I'm looking into a complete rewrite of ASCIImator though, so stay tuned!
2) Copyright concerns, of course. I would have to handle potential takedown requests.
3) Filesize/upload system stuff - I'd need to handle uploading sounds, recompressing them to
multiple formats for browser coverage, as well as probably some kind of public sound library.

I like how you didn't realise until now, despite there being 100 comments about it that you
participated in xD

Btw, if you're interested I made a room for ASCIImator on a discord server. But there's
not many people there, just a couple of the last few active people.
