particle tutorials?

particle tutorials?

particle tutorials?

i noticed that particles is possibly one of the tutorialed topics in qb, and it's a shame.  the only one i found was in a tut on typosoft...  

does anyone else know of any good particle tutorials/programs?  

RE: particle tutorials?

What do you want to do with the particles?

gravitational attraction
relativistic characteristics
electromagnetic forces

There are programs out there, but most of them focus on only one of these

RE: particle tutorials?

nothing yet.  i just want to learn about the very basics.  right now i'm finishing up palettes first: i'm making palette subroutines for qb, then i'm gonna upload it.  (very fast, almost finished.  rotating, greyscaling, fading (in and out), and stepfading (partially fading).)  I never realized playing with the palette could be so much fun!  not to mention that i think this will probably be one of the most complete and advanced palette routines in pure qb (even more than relgfx and har, heh heh... )

RE: particle tutorials?

Barok, check QBXL. Either issue 2 or 3 has a nice tutorial on the fundamentals of particle systems.

RE: particle tutorials?

yay!  finally finished the palette program.  you can download it at


i believe it is very useful, especially for the lazy programmer who doesn't want to do all that work of making palette routines. ;)
