Particle engines are a pain...i've written a few hundred lines of utility functions and there's barely anything to see... Jan 18, 2016

      Here it is, 2800 lines of particle goodness:


      Need to finish the documentation and will update the thread either later or tomorrow. I'll be happy over everyone volunteering to test this, since it will take forever for me alone to find all bugs.

        Reading through the parameters and commands right now.  Looks like you included all the good things like attraction and repulsion.  This will be a fun weekend if I can get it to work.

        Yeah, the documentation is lacking right now, but i tried to put everything needed into the JSDoc, including parameter and return types, especially since a lot of functions are overloaded and can be called with different parameters.

        Not a problem, I am in no way complaining.  To actually have a particle engine for RM atm is a total miracle.  I am gonna try to see if I can work a puzzle around an emitter and a repulsive object,

      I managed to get basic collision between particles and nearly everything else, i wanted to do.


      CrossZone (collision between particles and primitives) are the only thing that's left to do and i can post the beta plugin.

      I just wrote 700 lines of JavaScript commentary...my fingers need a break.

        I think they are actually usable, except for a few that read like "Don't ask me what this does, i just copied it and it works, so i left it at that".

      I've managed to recreate the Proton fireball demo (http://a-jie.github.io/Proton/example/sparks/sun/fireball.html) in my own particle engine.


      It even runs a bit faster, than the original, though i'm sure there's room for optimization.


      I still got a few features to port over, but i should have a working (beta) plugin by the end of the week, unless something goes wrong.

        Oh nice!  This means you can do a swarm too?
        Jan 21, 2016
      2. Iavra
        Iavra
        Swarm? ^^ You could display some particles randomly moving around the screen, if that's what you mean. Basically everything you can see on the Proton site should be possible, once i'm finished porting.

      Is it me or seems the forum more...quiet since it got ported to V4?

      I just realized Proton contains a call for a function, that doesn't even exist :D It's in an else-branch, that basically never gets called, though.

        So, essentially it's  if (condition) {code} else Function() in C#?

        @AwesomeCool: I'm not using one, i'm writing it :D


        To be fair, i have an existing one to work with, but i modify it pretty heavily to fit into MV.

        @larvaa - I meant make them. XD


        I admit that they are a little pain to setup with all the trial an error.

        I always make my own dough and tomato sauce.


        Today's pizza was made with fresh champignons and anchovies (hopefully no italien will hate me for this).


        Thick pizza is more popular in the US, i think. I prefer thin ones (i knead with my hands, no tools used).

      I totally love Melodic (Death) Metal, sound-wise, but i can't stand screaming...a bad situation to be in, huh?

        I am with you. Metal has a good sound to me, (as does most music!) I just really hate it when Cookie Monster gets on the vocal track...

        There are some singers that just have a voice for metal, I don't know names, but Bolt Thrower comes to mind.

      About half an hour until OoT all dungeon, run by ZFG. My favorite speedrun game, category and runner all in one. It's about 3am now, but this has to be amazing.

        Make sure you set the VCR to record in EP format and your blank cassette is fully rewound so you can records it!

        I like speedruns if they are the non glitch variant.


        Feels more skill based to be and less dependent on a single action (that bypasses mot of the game)

        OoT all dungeons and Paper Mario all cards don't rely on single glitches, but a lot of smaller ones, which makes them quite fun to watch. Plus, both runners did amazing commentary.

        16gb ddr4 ram


        1tb ssd + 1tb hdd


        Graphics could be better, i know, but i prefer nVidia over AMD and 980 Ti and higher require too much power for too low benefit (for me).

        I got a 550W be quiet! Dark Power P11 in there, which is more than enough to power the system and very efficient (80plus platinum certified).


        A good power supply is very important to me ^^

        As that is the most important part of the pc and will boost the power of the pc by (500 * sexy value) percent!

        Unlike some people, i also really like glitch speedruns, so i really liked Darksiders 2 and look forward to Half-Life 2 and Zelda: OoT (my personal highlight).

        He usually hides in the cellar (we locked the hatch, so he can't run outside and get scared even more).
