ATASCII HTML5 viewer
The system is not multiline aware yet, but at this point seems to play most animations with few glitches.
- Numerous emulation fixes
- Rudimentary support for controlling playback speed
- Added full-screen mode
- First publicly-available version. Still a beta.
I found the following resources very handy in decoding the ATASCII format:
One big reason I was inspired to create this viewer was finding the old "Break Movie Warehouse" website, which is archived in the Wayback Machine. This site was created by Tom D'Ambrosio to showcase the many ATASCII animations he created over the years. It included a Java applet by Tony Smolar which would play the animations in a web browser. But Java has changed a lot since then, and the applet doesn't work anymore.
