personally I like them. The third one gets a rating of 0 though because it gives me an error on load . Did I mention I don't read german so I don't really know whats going on. And uh.. interesting style for the windows

Hi,

@Error at Demo3: Mh... did you have DirectX 8 or higher?? I''m using DirectSound for the Sounds in this demo.. (Or, if there is a Sound.wav in the directory where the Demo is, delete it and try it again ^^)

@WindowStyle: I''ve written some Components, the Koshigaya Kool Components I''ll release them in a few weeks, they''re nearly completed.

Au''revoir,
Aya~

Hey thats pretty cool. I especially like the windows & the anime chick The particle system looks to have the standard basic stuff, blending between two colors, spawn cone ( which is a cool feature ), gravity, basic collision, and size lerping. You might should look into adding variable lifetimes and sizes. That'll kill some of the uniformity you have now ( which is unnatural ). Also adding the ability to load a property sheet of an emitter would be nice. When doing a demo though, its easier to have all of the properties modifiable in real time ( Like you have now , as long as you expose all of the variables), but once you start using it for a game or something, it'll be simpler to load it from a file. Perhaps you could add a 'save current settings' option to your viewer for later use.
