ASCII2GIF converter
v. 1.0 (beta)

1. No story line whatsoever. No talking; no narrating.

2. Words, numbers, stick figures, etc. may be allowed only when they are used for aesthetic purposes (for cool-looking effects... or secret messages) --but not to create a story.

3. Have some sort of balance. In other words, don't do most of your animating in a tiny square. It can symmetrical but doesn't have to be . Also, make sure to use multiple frames when appropriate.

4. Additions must flow smoothly with previous entries. This is part of the challenge.

5. Save as open source and tag the video "The Abstract Challenge"

6. Don't edit previous entries, change the frame-rate (20 ms per frame), etc.

7. Be original. :) The more creative, the better.

Sorry, hzaa, but a month of total inactivity is kind of long.

Once this collab hits 100 turns, I'm going to turn this into a large, color screensaver!  :) 
Then every 100 turns after that I'll add onto it.  So... maybe that'll be a little bit of
encouragement to add onto this.

That sounds like a pretty good idea!
Well, apart from the fact that my eyes would just die every time I walked up to my computer :P

The amount of blood that drips from one's eyes is a fairly good measurement of the awesomeness
of a screensaver.  :)

One does not simply use a screensaver nowadays.

I just auto turn off my monitor.

Also, you're going to wait until it says "Abstract Challenge (100)"? It took you
about a month to get it to 9.

I actually turn off my monitor more often too, but I still like to use a screensaver once in a

Also, it took a month because of hzaa.  He said "me next" a month ago but never showed up.
 >_<  Anyway, Asciimator's battle has more than 200 turns, so it is possible (it took
about 8 months to make 100, which isn't too long for the patient).  Short screen savers
aren't very fun.

I'll try doing it in 50 turns if I think it's long enough.

I had never seen a collab like this before. This is entirely new. I don't really have time to
ASCIImate, but when it's time for summer, I will be more active.
