If you want to view .nfo files in Notepad, just set your font to "Terminal", your font style to "Regular", and your font size to "11". Then you can see the graphics.
For example, copy and paste the .nfo from your example into notepad and set your font. You will get a picture of something.
All you need to know to make the pictures is what character does what kind of shading and then make a black and white sketch or something and try to copy it into notepad using the right shading characters... you could use character map to help you figure out what characters to use to shade it properly.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
