Homepage, forum, gallery, everything can be accessed via:
http://ascii-patrol.com and https://ascii-patrol.com

Links to forum changed to force using https (google politics).

If after logging in to forum, your https indicator shows a warning (mixed content) you can:

;) forget it
:o or remove your avatar
:-X or reupload your avatar (still nut working...)
:o or use one of six standard avatar faces (like my one).

General Discussion / ./asciipat arguments & hiscores
« Last post by gumix on November 29, 2017, 06:08:48 pm »
Normal interactive run (without arguments):
./asciipat

After finishing game you may notice there is "asciipat.rec" file in your home directory.
It can be used to replay game or to validate your score.

Score validation (no graphics) - this is used by hi-scores server
./asciipat 0 asciipat.rec

Time lapsed (faaast) playback
./asciipat 1 asciipat.rec

Normal playback - I use it to capture videos
./asciipat 2 asciipat.rec

:) Windows users should replace './asciipat' with 'asciipat.exe' of course

Now the most exciting part, you can download & play back all entries from hi-scores server.

:) HTML5 .rec file player is planned too!

General Discussion / Arch Linux Packages on AUR

For the very first time, Ascii Patrol is packaged for Arch Linux.

SlavMetal made one by linking directly to Ascii Patrol sources on github so it can target any platform:

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ascii-patrol-git/

Another one, by Towtow10 links to prebuilt Debian Linux executables:

Hi Sieger, welcome onboard. Am very glad you liked pictures in the galery.
Ascii Patrol (AP) is my past project but you could do more screen shots from game directly if you wish. I'd be happy to include them in the galery.
Cheers, gumix.

Accordingly to: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=78&t=188406
AP can be easily built and runs great on Raspberry PI!

Welcome yordan!
I'm going to put sources on github soon.
Regarding 'any platform' that is possible if you're able to provide basic keyboard input, audio and console outputs to game's callbacks :)

First - congrats for starting that and putting so much enthusiasm and effort.
and
Second - do you plan a release for raspberrypi platform or open source version that can be compiled for any POSIX-like platform ?

Thanks
Wish you all the best
