even if you did not do it to increase performance, the question remains: Does it increase performance to have one larger object instead of multiple smaller objects which cover the same 'area'? Always. With one cube, you are calculating 8 points and then rendering a texture over the area (and maybe ...

Edit: Alright, went through a proxy and grabbed the file just fine. Not sure why my computer doesn't like that server. First thing I notice: You cannot alt-tab out. Well, you can, but even when you open up another window, the program still controls your mouse. Second, if possible, I'd try generating...

Terrain generator looks great. Unfortunately all of your screen shots and downloads are down. I'll take a look at it again when it's back up :)

Interesting... I honestly have no clue how much the processor affects the speed of the program or much else for that matter. As far as my full specs go: Intel i7 - 920 @ 2.67GHz () - 4 "real" cores (8 with multi-threading) NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT x 2 in SLI - 512 MB each 12 GB DDR3 RAM - NB: 2140 MHz...

Flame Filter

Got some inspiration from: http://processing.org/learning/topics/firecube.html I might go ahead and add the 3D rotating cube in the future, but for now I'm happy with my spinning circle/fireball. Learned a lot about the image buffer and screen buffer with this. Before I started using the buffers, th...

Sooo pretttyyyy. I've used both Adobe Acrobat and Foxit, and on my slower machine I prefer Foxit... But now I prefer this :p it obviously isn't the most robust program in the world, but I think with a few little tweaks, I may make this the default. I love the feel of it :). Now I'd just recommend ad...

Very purdy! I love little demos like this, and the result is very nice! I might play with the code in a bit to see if I can create any malicious off-spring :D

Ha, I didn't even think about the numbers, I was just fixing Ren's issue.

For some reason it is showing a pink box, not a pink smooth rounded box.

Um, well, I'd be more likely to buy from a trusted vendor such as New Egg or Tiger Direct... I saw a 16GB for $14 after rebate the other day.

That said, please do not post these sorts of things on this board. This is not the place for them.

By the way, the links in the original post just give me a "page not found" error. Opps, sorry about that. Moved some images around on the server recently and missed that one. Fixed :) edit: The horse is simply the logo for historical reasons. Sure we don't have to have it, but why not? From a symbo...

Nice! Very nice shell, and impressive use of tools (Well, you made them :P )

Very OOP (Not that it is a bad thing!) Very organized. Well done!
