Unicode (utf8) rendering is very slow.  I will study ascii-patrol more.

Mucking with an editor now.

Hi clort!
Thank you for your post, sounds like you're an ASCII connoisseur!
It is great to hear you are working on ascii game project too. I'd love to see your progress!
I can give a hint! :)

Well thank you so much for the github page.   spec_nix.cpp is a rich harvest for me.

It's not just nice. 

This game takes a concept that others have tried (arcade game in terminal/console) and just completely blows them out of the water.

It does everyting so much better than everything that's been done before that it's a whole new class of thing.

Unfortunately, ascii-patrol is not very widely known.  I discovered ascii-patrol only after spending several hours searching all corners of web ascii/console arcade games.

I also want to write a (much more modest) arcade game for terminal: I'm more of the artist and less the programmer.  I've spent the past year and a half honing my chops with unicode block-25 graphics

After some initial tests it looks like i'll be able to make a simple game without ncurses - just ansi codes for refreshing screen and cursor positioning should do the trick for, at least, somewhat modern systems.  I'm a little shocked by how smoothly the animation of ascii-patrol runs even with urxvt, which has some serious issues with rendering speed on the raspberry pi.

I'll do what I can to spread awareness of this ... well... groundbreaking game.
