It will probably not come as a big surprise, given the date of the last news post, but since I just got a bug report, I figured I should make an official statement about the state of AdvASCIIdraw.
Despite what I said in that post, now more than a year ago, the program and project are dead, at least for the foreseeable future.
While I enjoyed every minute I spent working on this, and am very humbled by the many nice comments and overall positive reception I got, that is not enough to make a living.
So for the time being I have moved on to concentrate fully on making games (see http://rochefusion.com for what I am doing pretty much full-time right now).
This does not mean that AdvASCIIdraw has to remain dead forever. I would very much enjoy reviving it at some point in the future, including a full rewrite in a more modern language, and a bunch of features, that I could only dream about back then.
But, in the end (unless someone gives me loads of moneys for doing that ;) ), I cannot make any promises.
For the time being, the only thing I can, and will continue to do is hosting the site and program, just where it has always been. And I will also always still answer any questions that I get per mail or through our forums.
So, thanks a lot to everybody who has been, and maybe still is using AdvASCIIdraw.
I made the program just for you, and anything you do with it makes me proud and happy!
Enjoy the pixels!
