The Yet Another NFO Viewer or simply YaNvi is intended to be a small, light and hopefully fast tool to properly view ASCII artwork files in DOS encoding (with extensions NFO, ASC and DIZ).

What is Yet Another NFO Viewer?
So this “Yet Another NFO Viewer” project was originally planned to be a continuation/update on the “NFO Viewer” project by Kris Gybels and his open-source code repository over at SourceForge.net.
As this original project looked like it was compiled on an older Xcode and Mac OS X setup (probably 10.4), I had troubles getting it to compile on my current setup so I decided to completely re-write it from scratch on Mac OS X 10.6 using Xcode 3.2 so that I would be able to also produce a 64-bit binary.
The included (and necessary) resource ProFontWindows is an original bitmap font created by Tobias Jung and then kindly converted to Windows TrueType format by Mike Smith. This font was also used in “NFO Viewer” by Kris Gybels, which is the most convenient free font for ASCII art found and available, so far.
This tool is now submitted on MacUpdate.com and has a permanent page. For updates and/or comments, please visit the application page. Version 1.0.2 is already out, with improved application icons and auto-resizing of the ASCII document window.
Requirements: Intel-based Mac computer, running 10.6.x. or later.
