Star Wars Asciimation Revisited

timothy posted more than 11 years ago | from the hey-it's-from-1977-after-all dept.

Star Wars Prequels 173

Treebeard the Ent writes "A few years ago, Slashdot did a story about a guy Who was creating a full motion Ascii version of Star Wars in Asciimation. This is a link to the source of the now infamous Star Wars ASCIIMATION project that has been evolving since 97. This guy has stated that he prefers to finish this project on his own (but you are welcomed to do any of the other Star Wars movies). In his FAQ's he has stated that he doesn't have time to support his Java applet nor the text files, so he would not be making them available for anyone. Fortunatally enough for those of us who are interested, he has left them wide open in a standard zip file on his server. So download and have fun... Just please don't make any ASCII pr0n movies..."

That's the most imaginative way I've seen it done in a while:

1) Get what looks like a magic-eye image
2) tell people to stare at it
3) after about 30 secs switch it to the goatse.cx guy

So ya, don't click the above link. And mods - get to work...

Actually there is an ASCII version of the porn movie "Deep Throat." [www1.zkm.de] Seriously.

wget http://www.asciimation.co.nz/SwPlay.jar
unzip -j swplay.jar data/sw1.txt
