    I maed sum partikels

    I wrote a simple particle system editor.

    http://iki.fi/sol/thingamagic/

    win32 binaries and sources there. Have fun.

    I don’t claim it’s bleeding edge in any way or form, but hey, maybe someone finds it useful.

    Here’s an oversized picture of it to annoy you:

    ..the visual editor is white on white text on both firefox and chrome, preview doesn’t work.. neither do most of the buttons.. let’s see what ahppens on ‘publish’ =)

    EDIT:..gah, of course my bbcode doesn’t work here, so.. deal with it. This isn’t even in the October Challenge 2011, but I can’t remove that category from the post. yay!

    EDIT:..okay, managed to get the html editor on, even though it doesn’t SEEM to be on, so I fixed the links. Enjoy.

      That’s nice.:)

      I’m currently making a particle system of my own, but it doesn’t have as many parameters as yours.

      Can I ask, what are the amp and period parameters for?

      Each of the edit dialogs is separate, and you can keep them all minimized if you want. And you can scale the window up to make more room. And you can change to a smaller font. And and and.

      So anyway, feel free to steal anything from it that you want.

      As for amp and period parameters, read the docs on the web page, I even drew a picture =)

        okay, amp and period add periodic perturbation to a variable. =)

        In my system I allow a random number to be added to each each variable, so it can’t produce spiral patterns. No lawn sprinklers for me. :(

      Wow very nice! Thanks for sharing this. I might take a shot at porting this to iOS, i’ll let you know if it works.
