Development Progress / Fixed bug under Linux - no keyboard input in gnome terminals
« Last post by gumix on January 22, 2018, 04:41:51 pm »
Thanks to @goberghen I was able fix keyboard problem in VTE (gnome) based terminals.

Fix involves use of X11 extension named XInput (v2). The one drawback is that in multi-tab terminals like Terminator, game left on some tab in the background is actively interpreting key strokes entered into foreground terminal tab.  :o I hope we can live with it by now.

Homepage, forum, gallery, everything can be accessed via: and

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):

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!

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:

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.

Ascii Patrol is Open Source project now, so anyone may try to build game for his/her own platform.
