Cause if you're gonna bring up an old thread why not bring up an old meme? XD

I'm gonna make something with this thing first chance I get because I like animations and ascii art and programming and I'm sure I can have some fun with this. Smiley I mean it's got layers and everything, what's not to like?

Also, eigenbom, I LOVE THE ROBOT WALKER THING.

Would it be possible to add an option to use fonts that have more than 256 characters?

Hey Trihook, I don't have time to maintain this anymore, but I had a quick look at the code and found that the 256 character limit is hard coded in a few places. For example, here:
https://bitbucket.org/bpio/ascii-paint/src/e2d38a44c4888f67d019e6af19f54f6f77155889/src/symbols_widget.cpp?at=default

If you know a little c++, then you're more than welcome to fork the code. It's generally pretty clean and modular. You'd have to replace the void* array with something that stores the length, like a std::list, or a TCODList or whatever is included with libtcod. The other adjustment would be the file format, as I probably use a single byte for each character. To support more than 256 you'd have to change that to a short.
