Title: 1st Amstrad ASCII Compo
Post by: logiker on 10:51, 24 May 21
The "1st Amstrad ASCII Compo" launches!


You always hear about ASCII, ANSI and PETSCII. So why not a special compo for Amstrad ASCII? It's really time, isn't it?
Join this fun event! Create your own Amstrad ASCII art and enjoy the limits of retro computing.
This event is held online only.


28. May - 30. June 2021


So, official launch is this Friday, 28th May 2021


More information on my website: http://logiker.com/1st-Amstrad-ASCII-Compo

Would a .BAS File also be ok as an entry ?

Yes, that's no problem.
If you do something totally "out of order" it would go to the Wild category.

Only a few days left to go. ⌚
So, if you'd like to participate, now would be a good time to finish your AMSCII art... 👈


🙏 Thanks to all those who already took part

Doesn't the A in ASCII mean Amstrad?

Actually ASCII means American Standard Code for Information Interchange.
Amstrad ASCII would mean Amstrad American Standard Code for Information Interchange.
That's why in my mind AMSCII would not be that bad: AMstrad Standard Code for Information Interchange.
Although, AMSCII is not really official.
