What these people never seem to grasp is how hard it actually is to make things look nice in text mode. The resolution is low, true, but it’s “tricky” – you can use several different techniques to reach higher resoltions; antialiasing, different charset tricks (such as the 50% high blocks used in many Alpha Design demos), etc. There’s much more to text mode than what TextFX, AA-Lib or LibCaCa can offer!
Even if you do pick up LibCaCA, like I did for the last two TMDC invitations that I made (tmdc8 and tmdcx), your job isn’t done. The ready libraries do not help you with the very limited color space or contrast. Watching some of the old entries now shocks me on how well picked colors they have. Others are a noisy mess.
