Old BBS ATASCII Screens?

Recommended Posts

Gozar, seems some of my Textile coding in an entry from last fall was breaking the feed.


I use the NewsBlur newsreader, which I guess is more forgiving of broken feeds, and everything looked normal there.


Thanks for the heads up. I fixed the feed and it now validates.


I don't know how long it will take for Feedly to update, though. :(

Looks like that fixed it! Now what about the full text of the article in the feed? :-)

Wanted to resurrect this thread because I've posted some ATASCII animations on my blog.


In 1985, ANTIC Magazine published Mat*Rat's "Atari 'Toons" program, then asked readers to enter an animation contest. The winner would receive a 1200 baud modem. The video captures I made show the winning animations from ANTIC's contest, as well as two example animations created by Mat*Rat himself.




The Atari 'Toons program allowed users to customize the ATASCII character set. The image above uses such a modified character set.
