Hi there, am looking to commission a few ansi screens for a new BBS door game I’m writing, payment via Paypal or whatever is convenient, full credit given. Its going to be a small clone of Sierra’s Hoyle 3 for DOS. The door game allows someone to play Checkers, Othello, Backgammon or Chess. All in its 80x23 glory… heres what I’m brainstorming (pasted from a crude design file).
(here would be a full colorful fun medival 80x23 ansi/logo?)
(P)lay some games!
(L)ist current players/scores
(Q)uit for now
Welcome! You appear to be a new player. You can use your ARROW KEYS or
NUMBERS to choose your character from the selection below:
(detailed ansi with four character mini-pictures. The selection code will
place a square around the character)
You may customize your character colors below. Use the ARROW KEYS or NUMBERS. (this
will copy the mini-picture and just change the hair/skin/clothing colours)
And everyone should know you in the realm as…? (BBS alias)
Please select a game: (the selection is highlighted by a big square around

Additional ansis needed / considerations:
All ansis should be 80x23 to allow for an in-game status/menu bar.
Some kind of cool “slate” for the high scores, simular to a top-BBS user
list. Medival scroll theme?
Maybe the medival slate is the common “background” for every ansi?
Maybe for a slate ansi, copy the mini-picture of the game to the header
of the ansi so it looks unique and fun.
A small 20x10 slate ansi for in-game messages.
Ansi “icons” needed… am thinking 8x4 size? Dice, doubling-cube (for
backgammon), stopwatch/thinking-clouds (when the computer is thinking)
