PETSCII, BBS GRAPHICS, etc.

Hey dudes!

PETSCII, Mode 1 ( http://www.kameli.net/marq/?page_id=2717 )

16 * 16 = 256 chars

PETSCII, Mode 2 ( http://www.kameli.net/marq/?page_id=2717 )

16 * 16 = 256 chars

PETSCII, Directory ( http://style64.org/dirmaster )

16 * 12 = 192 chars


So there are different Petscii modes.

What do you guys think ... would it be helpful somehow to add a credit type like "DirArt" or similar?

Any suggestions?

Quote: Waiting for a moderator to manage this thread, but setting credits for logo-graphics is not possible, so logo graphician as a function doesn't even exist irl. Charset graphician on the other hand...

So, we need a 'charsetician' or 'fontician' category then.

While most PETSCII screens may use the above shown 'Mode 1', real BBS graphics are in 'Mode 2', because of the big/small letters for the text messages...

you havent seen a lot of "real" BBS gfx then - switching upper/lowercase on the fly wasnt uncommon at all. lowercase is really only a must for the "prompt" type of stuff.

I haven't seen those modes before. Those aren't the ROM-font index-modes. Nice visualizing the graphics that way. The indices for the lines look rather comforting.

I don't recall ever seeing upper case bbs graphics, so I'm guessing you're talking about the eighties?
