LOL...I just reformatted my comp, and I got the most unexpected error: "A required file, DINPUT8.DLL, was not found." Haha, lucky I backed up the install file, or it would be a 10+ mb d/l thru my skinny 56k line.

"Uh...I''ll have the cake please"
"All right! Give him cake! You! CAKE OR DEATH?"
"Uh...I''ll have cake too."
"All right! Give him cake too! At this rate we''re going to run out of cake! You! CAKE OR DEATH?"
"Death please.....Nonono, I meant cake, I meant cake!"
"You said death first death first! Alright... give him cake...you''re lucky I''m Church of England. YOU! CAKE OR DEATH?"
"Cake, please."
"Well too bad! We''re out of cake! We weren''t expecting such a rush."
"Alright, I''ll have the chicken."
"Here you are. Would you like some white wine with that?" -Eddie Izzard

Very cool effect!

You should make a tutorial about it someday. Or maybe make it into a screensaver with the particles flying between random spots.

Anyway, it ran at a steady 60 FPS in fullscreen mode and 75 FPS in windowed mode (strangely enough). My PC is an Athlon 1GHz, GeForce 2 GTS, running Windows XP.

I get around 500 fps on my brothers computer...

Athlon XP1800+ (1533Mhz)
512 Mb DDR SDRAM
GF4 Ti4200 64Mb

It drops from about 2300 fps when there is no particles onscreen.

Looks great!

Very nice, I especially like left clicking to see particles and right click to change colors =). Keep up the good work!

Ran decently on my computer.

FPS Fullscreen:150
FPS Window:120

466MHz Celery Processor
512Mb SDRAM
Radeon 7200
