Dear visitors and members, with the staff having moved on to other life interests and as a result of changes in people's internet usage habits, the CodeWalrus community have migrated almost entirely to Discord, IRC and WalrusIRC and is now essentially a place where to hang out, chat about gaming, programming, music, anime, and chill. As a result, even though the CW forums will remain open for posting, for faster TI, Casio or HP calculator help and news we recommend using the bilingual TI-Planet forums instead.

We encourage everyone to join our Discord server now.

* WalrusIRC

You need to have 5 posts and not be part of restricted usergroups in order to use the WalrusIRC embedded shoutbox. However, you can also access our IRC channel called #CodeWalrus via EFnet.

I know I’m a judge, and inherently will not/cannot submit an entry, but here’s how I’d convert an image to ascii. (Even though the contest didn’t say anything about ascii, I really like the idea)

I’d throw a few trained convolutional neural networks at my frames, checking for edges, at angles that can be represented in ASCII. (90 or 270, 180 or 0, and what ever angles the slash and backslash symbols are. I’d also have a few checking for a filled square vs an empty one, etc.)

I’d chuck that output into text file(s).

I would then initialize some form of viewing window, and display each frame at the correct speed.

As for the 8bit graphics, I would most likely have a program that I spent 30 seconds on (to fulfill the suggested 8bit graphics thing) that would convert an image to an 8bit image.
