    Question ??Character Mapping??

    A few post ago I asked Wraith_MAster how he did his cool looking menu in the console.
    here is the link:
    http://<br /> <a href="http://cboar...0561</a><br />
    And he said Character Mapping. Now to be honest I have no clue how to do this so I 'll ask it in this new thread since i dont want to bring back and old topic.

    Can anyone give me good example
    Thanks

    You just use characters. The source was there as I recall.

    [edit]
    Just as I thought, look at the source next time!

    Code:
     浜様様様様様様僕様様様僕曜曜様様様僕僕様様様様様様
    様様様様様様様様様様様様様様融\
                 LVL:   +-麺陵MENU洋郵 MESSAGES                                 \
                 藩様様様                                                  \
                            Fight!                                           \
                            Heal                                             \
                            About                                            \
                            Exit                                             \
                                                                           \
     藩様様様様様様様様様様瞥擁擁様様様瞥瞥様様様様様様
    様様様様様様様様様様様様様様"/**/;

    I saw that, dont worry I had a look at it. But the character that he used how do i get those into my compiler?

    so to make a square(just copying last post) you would do something like this:

    Code:
    浜様様様様様様
                       
                     
                     
                     
                     
                     
    浜様様様様様様

    Never mind I basicly figured everything out by couting every simbol possible and from there i printed out a nice little data sheet which now tells me all of them.

    Thanks anyway!

    Okay, I don't think you got it 100%. The way a dos prompt (or even the dos os) interprets those character is how you see them in wraith_master's game. Open up charmap and change the font to terminal. That is what the ascii chart will look like in a dos prompt (not the full chart but you get the idea).

    I understand this is my little data sheet:

    Code:
     = ╦
    
     = ╩
    
     = ╔
    
     = ╚
    
     = ╠
    
     = ═
    
     = ╬
    
     = ╧
    
     = ┴
    
     = ┬
    
     = ├
    
     = ─
    
     = ╥
    
     = ╙
    
     = ╘
    
     = ╓
    
     = ┘
    
     = ┌
    
     = ╣
    
      = ║
    
     = ╗
    
     = ┐
    
     = │
    
     = ╝
    
      = ╜
    
      = ╛

    It would be easier for you to have the symbol and the alt code for it next to it. But it is your table, you can do whatever you think is best.

    I know but the problem is that i couldn't find the alt+ code's they didn't show.

    Is there any other place I could get them?

    In charmap the alt keys are in that status bar (bottom right side of the window). Enjoy.
