They don't take long to make, or mine didn't but mine isn't anywhere near as good as it needs to be for game use.

I'm only handling 399 rays without reasonable lag, like so.
Ray Tracer.

That lags because of the lines drawn. Do a fill instead using the hit points for edges.
Anyway, you're doing it wrong. Glaiel meant 3d raytracing that is used for rendering. You don't need to trace every adjacent ray in 2d, for what you have it'd be better to even do it naively for each vertex (or particle, in the case of circles).

Ray Tracer

Looking at your demo, I think I may have made a ray tracer a while ago without realising that it was one, for the sake of dynamic lighting in a game. Is that technically a ray tracer, or does a ray tracer have to individually check each ray rather than working out where it will hit? In my thing it calculates the tangents of the of the circles to the mouse position and draws a shadow behind it.

Raytracing is 3d graphics. A method of rendering by tracing rays of light backwards from the lens toward light sources.

You're just rendering shadows.

Ah, in that case, I'm off to make a real one.

A 2d one anyway.

Which part of 'raytracing is 3d' are you having trouble with? Unless you're talking about rendering a line.

That's not the problem - I stick with what I start to a ridiculous extent, evenwhen it becomes apparent it's going to take years to finish :p

You're right, I opened up flash and thought "wait, what the hell, this won't work", and now I feel like a dickhead. Haven't been thinking straight all day.

I linked to it ages agoooo... hes interning for The Behemoth.

He also did that Tricky skateboard deck at comic con.

I wish he hadnt shown what the cook looks like tho. I like how for most of the film you just see his legs and hands and you kinda make your own impression of what he might look like.
When you finally see him its kinda disappointing.

Yes, it is. I love it when he's screaming and yelling, though. That part would suck without seeing a face, in my opinion.

This. I have the exact same problem every now and then, I have no idea what's causing it. I've only heard very few people complain about this issue. So far I've been able to fix it be altering the sound quality, not a satisfactory solution though. It only happens with .swf files I've compiled myself though, not with random other files.

Oh, and to my previous problem, my mouse was broken. A new mouse has beaten the whole "no dropdowns in Flash" problem. Funny how wireless mice cause these sorts of problems.

Shit Web Design Companies

They really piss me off. Companies like Artists Web. Just check out their services page, with the stupidly long URL. Among their services, they boast the impress claim of a "compatibility test on all computers". Well, they've got several sites live, but have never tested anything on my computer.

Also, their XHTML is NOT W3C valid, despite what their site says.

Also they've disabled right click, for some indiscernible reason.

I like how the pop-up has the grammar of an angry Chinese Restaurant chef.

Ice Cream Truck Flash

Really great animation, but the beginning scared me the most. Because I have an actual fear of ice cream trucks, mostly ice cream truck music.

I assume the overly long URLs are to help get more hits on google. Not sure if google works like that though.
