In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to set up JWildfire in the NetBeans IDE so you can edit the software in one of the best Java IDEs available. This will allow you to make custom variations of your own without having to use the custom_wf variation.
I really like fractals. But despite having worked with several programs, I never quite found the program that best suited me. I started learning about fractals with the discovery of Apophysis 2 around November 2009. Since then, I’ve used:
- Apophysis 7X
- Mandelbulb 3D
- Incendia Ex
I thought I’d right my own fractal program, since I like fractals so much. Unfortunately the engine I use (or more precisely, my hardware), can’t handle too much. It’s better to draw things on an image, but even that takes a long time. This week in programming, I learned about optimizing algorithms for drawing to the screen… okay, forget it. The traditional way is better, but I end up having to draw a ton of cubes. So here we go…
I don’t know about you, but I had a headache trying to change the album cover art that displays in VLC. If you recall, VLC automatically downloads cover art for your music. What you should also know is: when you save a playlist VLC CACHES THE ARTWORK! That’s really annoying when you have the WRONG album art. So in this post, I’m going to tell you how to change it. Hurray!
irrlicht is a 3D engine. While it has it’s own independent drawing capabilities, it’s primarily used as a wrapper for OpenGL and DirectX. More importantly: it’s free, open-source, and developed by a great community.
One of the nice features about the engine is it’s built-in GUI system.
I decided to extend the GUI system, making it easier to add GUI elements as well as adding new ones. These I’ve put on my website, on the Irrlicht Expansion Project page. You can read the short descriptions of things there, but I’d like to ramble and explain my reasoning for starting those projects and maybe you’ll get an idea of what they are primarily intended for… or not.

Fractal generators like Apophysis are quite widely used, so it may have become alittle difficult to appreciate what they do. Every once in awhile, something really stands out.

My first post on Japanese, offering you some tools and accompanying advice (most of which is in the latter half of this article).
You can mess up, but the beautiful thing is: if the browser doesn’t know what you’re asking for, it ignores it. No crashing!
Recently, I’ve been working on web pages. That’s something I’ve never done before, at least not the correct way. I used to think I had to layout a website with tables. I had no idea xml format was so easy. I was missing out on the power and simplicity of the web. All those cool websites you see? Yes, you can do them to.
