Star Wars IV in Terminal

Recommended Posts

I've just been shown this on another forum:

 

Open Terminal and type...

 

telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl

 

...to watch Star Wars Episode IV in it's entirety in ASCii characters!

 

I'd seen the "film" via a website before but I never knew it was available this way...Cool!!

 

:shock:

I know some newbies out there won't know this but Terminal also has games on it.

 

Three I know of are:

tetris

pong

dunnet (a text adventure game)

 

To access,

Open terminal

type emacs

then press escape + X ( at the same time)

then type tetris

 

or instead of tetris, type:

 

pong or dunnet

I couldn't get the games to work, please could you post a code quote that I can just copy and paste like I did with Star Wars thing, thats really impressive by the way, must've taken ages.

Yeah, you are xxxx xxxxxx and it looks like you pressed "Notify me when a reply is posted"

EDITED BY ROB: I edited the name out of the post. Sorry if it offends anyone, but l33t has not offered his name, so I think he should have the right to stay mostly anonymous. PM me if you disagree.
