Particle Explosion

Well here is some flash i did a couple of months back now. I had planned to do a whole series of these and upload the source for others to use on their site, but other projects came up that required my attention more. Perhaps I will get time to do them this summer 🙂

Anyways here is my first experiment with particles. I wanted to see how optimized i could create the system to get as many particles as possible on the screen at one time. As you can see, its starts slowing down quite easily (around 500 on a normal system). Apparently with AS3 we will get ints as a data type which will hopefully will speed things up a bit 🙂

Once i get a chance ill upload the source for this, but for now here is the .swf
