Question Who can read that scribble?

Maybe there should be a thread in "Memories" forum about crappy unreadable ascii art as well?

Well, I tried and tried but couldn't read this.
So who was it to do this nice CD32 HD fix for Surf Ninjas?

With a symmetry axis.
Didn't think of that, crackers usually are no good mathematicians

Thanks bud.

It's no symetry axis, a bit of the text is being reflected on the "floor"!

You have a bad eye for ascii art eh?

I'll leave the thread here for future reference.

Really cheap water effect

I can see AOLLO but what the hell is going on with that P, it looks like an Axe propped up with a wonkey triangle!

I contradict: it *IS* a symmetry axis!
(even though the mirrored text is not "finished" because of the limited space!)

Because, if it *WAS* a reflection and the text was to be regarded as if set on edge, the angle of incidence wouldn't be 180░, but rather an obtuse angle [say, about 110░], with the end of the lower leg pointing to the left, because of 3D projection on the water surface (resp. on the floor).
Got it?
Moreover, lines forming the letters in the mirrored image must be TALLER and narrower than original!
(Look at the loooong shadow you will cause on the street when the sun shines on your head! )

Yes, damnit, especially for such cheaply-done one!
Besides, it sucks!
(I'd rather call it 'ascii fart' )

For fuck's sake, it's ASCII ART (and a bad one at that). I know how a real life representation of this would look like. I wonder if you nitpick Dali art in the same way. And, cubism doesn't look the meant real life is supposed to be! WTF! Picasso had some fucking nerve!

By the way, do you live in an isometric world?Because I don't.

sure it spells out "apollo"... but if you ignore that it has a reflection, it spells out "XLSCFFX", which we all know is a form of monkey that lives under the bed of various form of Steve Guttenbergs.
