Perhaps you could modify the original image so it only shows the text and none of the "fluff" around it? That way, when it gets translated into ASCII, it will be easy to read.

Ah, that generator works well. Thanks for the link.
Heh, it uses figlet fonts.

I copied the best-looking titles into a text file, which is available on my server at:
http://eliot.bambi.net/dump/sc2_fonts.txt

Please consider using one of these for the sake of legibility.

I kinda liked 'Thin' and 'Tinker toy' too. Tinker toy looks a bit like connected stars.

Much more legible, but it's a shame you had to ditch the grandiose sweep...

Looks good to me! And I can read what it says now without standing back five feet and squinting, so that's a plus.

Ah, the perennial star wars ASCII movie. It's cool they've got a web interface for it now, and a fast forward feature. Still, nothing beats opening a telnet session with towel.blinkenlights.nl .

More random ascii stuff:

Old Commodore 'ascii art'.
The japanese character set is pretty nice too, they have more line stuff to work with.
