Have you tried doing colored unicode art in this thing's text editor?

It apparently only works with the given hexcolor values, but it's great for creating Tetris art. This may look weird before you click on the question:

@TetrisGuy What's with the ghost T?
TetrisGuy · 22-25, M
Once you get really good at tetris, you start going much faster and barely use soft drop. You just hard drop so it helps align the piece with the stack so you don't lose precious moments judging the distance.
TetrisGuy · 22-25, M
For instance this is my top speed:

(hit load at the bottom)
It's not remotely like Blizzy, who shattered his own world record and got a newsworthy sub 17 sprint today, actually.

Look at blizz. LOOK AT BLIZZ I HAVE NO IDEA HOW ANYONE CAN MOVE THEIR FINGERS FAST ENOUGH AND CORRECTLY ENOUGH TO DO THIS.
https://jstris.jezevec10.com/replay/640128

Blizz always blows my mind with his sprints.

@SW-User Oh, firefox should allow you to see most 'variations' of unicode!
TetrisGuy · 22-25, M
I'm using chrome lol, if you see colored solid blocks you're seeing it correctly lol.
SW-User
I believe, noone has ever attempted this here.

And now the floodgates have opened.
TetrisGuy · 22-25, M
@SW-User It's actually REALLY easy to make it once you know the trick.
Assign each of the 20 colors a letter.

Go to Notepad++ (because of the way its font is structured so things line up)

Have a reference to what you want to make (Tetris is super easy since that's all grid anyway)

Type things out like such:

TXXXXXXXXX
TTXXXXXXXX
TXXXXXXXXX
XXZZXXXXXX
XXXZZXXXXX
JJXTIIIILL
JXXTTIIIIL
JZXTSSTJJL
ZZXSSTTJLL
ZXXSZZTJIL
OOXSSZZLIL
OOXJSLLLIJ
SXXJJJOOIJ
SSITZZOOJJ
LSXTTZZTTT
LXXTZIOOTI
LLXZZIOOII
JJXZZIOOII
JXXZZIOOII
JTXZSSSSIL

Do Ctrl + F and go to Replace. For every letter you have coded, run a replace all with the respective letter that corresponds to a color, with the unicode symbol █ inside the markup code for the colors provided, for all of your letter-color codes. Be sure to remember line breaks and to have word wrap turned off.

Copy and paste into here.

Enjoy. LOL
TetrisGuy · 22-25, M
This is why you want to use Notepad or Notepad++

See how the other doesn't line up but this does? It makes things easier.

SW-User
@TetrisGuy Hah, yeah, I totally see how easy it would be!

@TetrisGuy sorry for just seeing your comment on my reply to your post
TetrisGuy · 22-25, M
@TacoCat 🤔
TacoCat · 22-25, M
@TetrisGuy I know trust me I'm confused too
5thApprentice · 26-30, M
TFW you're about to score. Lol
TetrisGuy · 22-25, M
@5thApprentice Score a tetris perfect clear that too <3
