Ok, so I got a friend (yes, really) to send me some warez installer progs because they look so awesome, there like little mini-demos\intros, so I was just wondering how they do them? Ive seen some stuff about about the non-rectangular GUIs, so that part isnt really a problem, but the've got like really cool particle systems, midi music etc, do they do it in GDI, openGL or D3D? and also ive written some particle systems, but I dont really know where to start on something as intricate\advanced in the ones in these... PS: dont turn this into a flame war about warez, and no i dont warez, im on a 56k, so even if I wanted to I cant, im just intested in the installers as you cant deny they look really sweet. (ok, picture time, 56k users beware) EDIT by ze: actually, everyone beware. You're about to download 16 images averaging over 100k each from a personal server. EDIT by elis-cool: its not really a personal server (well it is) but he hosts, so its no biggie, www.icarusindie.com Mod edit: CLOSE YOUR FREAKING QUOTES!

Of course I had to download the installers.rar file to check these programs out.

All three of them appears to use pure GDI for graphics.

Two of them uses a library called BASSMOD for MOD playback, while one of them (the Civ3 one) only seem to import the winmm waveOut* functions - it might use a custom music player or some statically linked library.

No DirectX. That surprised me a bit, actually.

Warezers,

Go away and don''t come back. Cheers.



Cool your jets. The demos being discussed here are only peripherally related to pirating software. And they DO look damn cool.


Don''t listen to me. I''ve had too much coffee.
