Converting image files to ASCII
Call me weird but wouldnt it be different if you could convert image files , like .bmp, to ASC characters? Does anyone know where I could learn to do that? or maybe something close to it?
My main goal is to turn a 2D game into a completly ASC based game. So its a text based game but with character graphics! Right now the only thing i can think of is take each little square that makes an image and turn it into a colored period... I dont know if thats a good start or what. so any help you could provide I'd greatly appreciate it!
