Bored? Create here a beautiful art ASCII with nballi ...
 
3 Attachment(s)
Hello Tux Family,

Being bored? Who is nballi?

nballi is a little ball which does jump on your console.

Please do not hesitate to leave us a nice ASCII Bitmap (as file attachment to this thread)...

Please share your art file which is simply located in the generated file:
/tmp/logo


Cheers!!
The Bitmap nBalli Team ;)

Quick Howto:
1) first step consists in renaming the pdf to tar.gz which is provided in attachment, then unpack it with:
Code:

tar xvpfz nballi_by_pat.tar.gz ; ./nballi
md5sum:
md5sum nballi_*
862f4fca33db834b21f18d52ace2dd96 nballi_by_pat.pdf
862f4fca33db834b21f18d52ace2dd96 nballi_by_pat.tar.gz
e8e2c77a4b87592659566f5121f9a46f nballi_x11_debian_screenshot.png




2) Key shortcuts:
If you press 'u', you can enter the EDIT mode to draw a landscape for the travel of nballi.
'space' key will draw a pixel at the position of the ball (cursor)
Pressing 't' will trace.
The color can be changed with 'o' and 'p'.
The cursor (shape) is changed with 'b' and 'n'.
'u' switches the view to edit or jumping mode.
'i' stops the ball (cursor).
'1'...'9' changes the color (drawing)

There are many other keys ...

At key press of 'space', it will draw to /tmp/logo
With activating with 't', you may draw lines and so on...

By the way, try the various cursors of nballi ('b' and 'n')... you saw the nice one? ;)

-- architectures:

I forgot. It has been coded some day (by me) under ncurses for fun.

(I release it for the pandora and debian i386 (Linux debian 2.6.32-5 #1 SMP Thu Nov 3 05:12:00 UTC 2011 i686 GNU/Linux))
ARM and i386 architectures are supported.

Sample:

I attach the /tmp/logo of the screenshot (posted as logo.txt).

Star trek, in BASIC...still have the listing here...cant find the book right now, but at the time of purchase (I was 12, then, some 36 years ago now) when I read the specs of the system it ran on...I was somewhat comatosed for ten minutes....it needed some 192 Kb of memory, this at the time when having 16K and a floppy drive in the house elevated you either to super geek or bad boy of the block :D

Ah, where are the days...

You remember the zx81, when we had sort to say 16kb and about 50 x 50 pixels for graphics

They are back in the deep dark ages of history now, lol. I don't know why but I thought you were younger than me, now I know I was wrong :D

Oh I do remember, and, try to put down a 3d maze where the only way to escape is to find all the gold bars (grey graphics, that was all it could do) hidden in the maze...

I'm edging towards fifty :) but I still have the software (settings in my brain's /etc mostly, the rest is pretty mature...) of a kid of sixteen, eh, one of the many pleasant side effects of Linux, I guess... ;)

You are probably born just after the first VT's http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VT100

Amazing time, when everything was still possible and not too much over-consumption ;) maybe

Nope I was born over 10 years before their release.

:D you're a kid....I was 14 at that time...and already boasted a mustach...in hindsight...that was not really a good look for me...after all, I was a kid with a brush under my nose... :D
But...these VT's played an important role in those "computerfilme/seriies" of which Automan was one...

Ahh, but Automan (and TRON, aaaaahhh yes, TRON) were sooooooo out there, it made you just want to get into IT...even in the very back of your mind you just knew all of that was impossible...

Actually, there should be a way to envoke these days with a game of sorts...what with all the tech we've got now (openGL, webGL, the web itself ...) that should be possible... :)

So you are as old as the first PDP - machine

Ohhh, that would be just about the time...

I liked very much AUTOMAN. That was cool at that time.

I just remembered this game http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9C88Q22K4w
You played with it also?
