Doom in Actionscript CRAZY!

Recently saw this link on BoingBoing.

Some fellas used Adobe’s Alchemy
(this is the first I’ve heard of it) to compile Dooms C++ code directly to Actionscript.

The frame rate isn’t all that great, but I’m still incredibly impressed with Adobe for coming up with all this crazy stuff and the Newgrounds crew for getting it to work.

FIRE!

FIRE!  ImageRecently I had some time to goof off at work and I wanted something quick and dirty to play with. So I tried to generate a flame using Perlin noise.

Now I know a ton of people have already done this kind of stuff.  But I wanted to give it a shot myself.  I don’t think my attempt is half bad either.

Really this is just a Perlin noise field in a bitmap being scrolled and blurred on 3 layers.  Sorta simple… kind of :D

The source code is super messy and not very edit friendly, but you’re welcome to it if you want it:

My first published attempt at Box2D

ImageWell, I said I was working on Box2d and indeed I am.

Over the past week I’ve been working on this for my birthday invite (turning 29! Terror!).

I’m using computeSpectrum to read in the music (by Aphex Twin).  The melody controls the frequency and size of the circles.  The beat brings in the red squares.  It looks better running so please don’t judge it by the image.
