need help designing your ascii interface? asciiflow.com
« on: April 09, 2014, 08:41:07 PM »
so, a coworker just showed me this website. It is intended as a flow-chart creator, but it actually works great for making menus and pictures and such.

I thought this was pretty neat, so I decided I would share it.

http://asciiflow.com/

the website has import and export functionality.

here is something I put together in about 30 seconds:

Code: [Select]
             +–––––––––––––––+         
+––––––––––––+roguelikes rock+–––––––––+
|            +–––––––––––––––+         |
|                                      |
|                                      |
|  a short treatise on why roguelikes  |
|  are the best thing since the games  |
|  began to exist...                   |
|                                      |
|                                      |
+––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––+

I remember seeing that website before, pretty useful since it can be used online. If anyone needs something for this same purpose but with a lot more features, one of the main reasons I designed REXPaint was to make accurate roguelike mockups easy to create. I mostly use it to quickly test UI schemes before implementing them, though more recently I've taken to drawing with it as well ;)

Your tool seems rather cool! I recognized X-COM's snake man immediately! I don't think I'll have an opportunity to use it but I will definitely mention it to everyone that is into ASCII art.

Nice. I just did up a sort of prototype screen for a romance of the three kingdoms rip off game.
