You've all seen those gestures with the rocking ASCII art, I'd like to know where, and how they are made. I've tried numerous ASCII generators online only to transfer the lines to SL and them be a complete mess. HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!! Thanks in advance.

Yeah i think there are a few people that know the secrets been trying to find them too. It has something to do with SL font, when you copy them in a diff format, then paste it in SL, just gets all out of wack.

Ok i found this how to, and it just tells the basics of making a gesture, i know how to do this. I want to know how to transfer ascii generated art into SL without it losing its spacing and look. All of the ascii generators i've tried once i've transfered to SL it loses spacing and it looks like a mess instead of the picture its suppose to.

Each line has to be put in repeat each line then a pause line by line in luding the spacing so that the gesture comes out correctly. So for instance if there is 5 spaces then the first symbol then the next line 4 spaces etc this has to be put in the gesture the only trick I have found is trail runs heheheh line by line ... Pause line pause line etc hope this helps. Boone
