In the terminal:
After the familiar credits, the Star Wars Episode IV will start playing in ASCII characters.
To stop the animation, press ctrl+] then type quit to come out of telnet command.
The whole “movie” is about 19 minutes long.
Oh my god. The 2000’s are calling and want their Ascii-Movie back. Ok… maybe 2005?
But it’s still pretty cool.
Just out of boredom, I tried it on a Win10 machine I’m working on for someone. It worked. Of course, I had to try to remember the M$ way of telnet…
If that wasn’t enough (I’m REALLY bored today) I opened it using cool-retro-term. The IBM3278 emulation brought back such memories.
