    Rendering Half-life 2 game in ASCII for a 486DX-2 ?

    Hi,

    Some Geeks here using C or python and ascii curs'ing libraries?

    What about designing a very light-weight method to really render HL2, and play it on an old computer.

    Rendering a video to be played on the DX is possible, finder in the nose But to play it ... That's another problem.

    There are two possibilities. Either you cannot make it since rendering it would be tricky if you gotta have to play it. Or, you could use a super-fast computer that would in-line transcribe the key and mouse gesture, and re-send it to the DX.

    btw check out libtcod. It is worth the try !

    Any other solutions?



    Code:
                                                                               
      \                                                                          
       \   __.,,------.._

    It is indeed good to laugh a lot.

    I like those crazy thoughts, I must say.

    Well, seriously, why cannot we use an old 486DX to game? There must be some solutions else than nInvaders.

    Why not multiplayer gaming over Net and curse?

    And for a completely unrelated news, someone ported Portal to a graphing calculator.

    A long time ago I asked some moderators on IRC if I could use that avatar, and they allowed me.
    Also, I'm using your post as my signature (for a while)

    there are children no on the board.

    I am a sensitive person, and I can not even look on the left side ...

    btw, is is possible that I do use chromium to block the url of a given picture?
    it is probably possible, actually, even on my router I might be capable...

    Maybe just ideas but I am not so sure.



    interesting idea.

    You are friendly though but just avatar is scary

    Use Adblock Plus along with Element Hiding Helper for Adblock Plus, then click the ABP icon in the addon bar, choose "Select an element to hide", then choose the image you want to block. This is for Firefox of course, for Chrome there's also Adblock Plus but I don't know if it's the same.

    I asked about the image in the forum itself.

    thanks. I think that I am too lazy to do that ... If I had a robot that could do it that would be great and also serve a segafredo
