TWG 4th of july spectacular
« on: June 26, 2003, 02:45:12 PM »
here's a preview of what me and 42 are doing for next week.  it's a fireworks program.  there's are only 2 different types done atm, I'm going to have 3-5 more.  And 42 is generiuos enough to do a few backgrounds.  There is sound, you can turn it off by clicking the green stop button in the bottem right hand corner.

Oh and I've decided to have on of those be chosen by the TWG forum people, but we don't have forum polls.  So place your suggestions here and by saturday what ever the consencious is that's what I add.  there will be a star shape and a clock shape.

Put in the dragon from LOTR.  :)
If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)

I've added one of the backgrounds I'm working on so you don't have to look at a plain balck screen.

as a background? well I guess I can let people vote on one of those as well.  Sofar

firework shape:
dragon from LOTR

background:
Bagdad

considering how slow our message boards are these might be the only two sugestions. ::)

If we had real bad taste we'd ask you to code the shuttle as a firework.

But how about a sloth shape!

I curse my connection. It may be my firewall, but I'm unwilling to give that up, as I have too many scans and attacks.

ok just an update that I am on target to be done by Monday then Fell/Tage can post it on the main page if they want.  I've got 3 backgrounds, 4 fireworks and a menu bar for the buttons (so they're not on top of the background/fireworks) and the ability to launch the fireworks via keyboard as well as by the mouse.  I'm going to have at least 2 more backgrounds (more if others make some) and 3-4 more firework types.

Cool!  My only suggestion is to make it so you can have multiple of the same shots going at the same time.  If I highlight one of the slow ones at the bottom, then click on it again, the firework I'd launched before dissapears and is replaced with the new one.  It would be cool if you could spray off a barrage from the same color.

I've found you can just "give them the focus" and they go off, no clicking needed. Much quicker. I'm not actually sure if it is quicker. It may not be.
