Ok. I'm stuck. I've made some wicked ANSi pics for a little RPG game I'm making for school. I want to know HOW you import an ANSi pic to a c++ program. The textbooks don't have jack crap about it!!!!!

Don't call me stupid, but wouldn't it just be a read function which reads in ANSI characters (i.e. bytes) and then you use a function which turns the bytes into readable characters.

When you say ANSI I believe you are refering to the 0-127 bit hex representaions? or are you talking of something else. I am not a C++ guy, but if you give me as much specifics about the file type you are pulling in, I can go and talk with my C++ guru buddy, and he will be able to give me/you a nice answer.

Well, I have a simple RPG test base game going on here. BUT, I don't find simple little characters appealing for craphics so I went out and used ACiD draw to make me some ANSi screens of some trees and crap. Now all I want to do is just replace the crap representation of pictures that I got and replace them with an ANSi picture. The file I saved it in is in *.ANS.

.ans sounds to me like a proprietary file structure. You're best bet is to try and find some info on the .ans structure. You can always pull the data out via binary read, you just need a map for the data, and any compression algorithms used. I would start by gathering more info on ACiD draw. I've never heard of it and I can't find it anywhere on the web (except on warez sites). Who makes it, what is their web url? As a last resort, you might try asking the makers for some help making the files.

If you can't get anywhere, try a different approach, use a standard format like gif or tiff, I could point you to lots of file structure site for those.

Another thought, can ACiD draw export as anything else?
