    Hi there,
    the request is a port of the Star Wars Asciimation to the DS. If you don't know what I am talking about, visit http://www.asciimation.co.nz/

    I have done some source browsing and found the download url for the ASCII art itself, I uploaded the .txt file that contains the movie itself to mediafire:

    This is the april 2008 version (newest to date), I think.

    Any thoughts/is it possible?

    Best regards,
    MM

    Note: I found the full java applet at http://www.asciimation.co.nz/asciimation/SwPlay.jar

    Cool site. I'm not sure how well Java performs on DS though. Maybe someone could write code for a DS application using the text. Fastest way to get it on your DS is to do a screen recording to a video file and play that on the DS.

    You'd have to use a pretty small font to fit a single "screen" worth of ASCII on the DS screen, which would probably result in any text being completely unreadable.
