I created a Java raytracer, and I posted it and the source code at http://www.coolgroups.com/raytracer/. Please take a look at the source and let me know if you have ideas for improving it. Thanks. Mike http://www.coolgroups.com/

I couldn't find the .exe on that website, just the source code.
I wrote a ray tracer for school a while ago and had a lot of fun putting after effects on the scenes (like anti-aliasing and motion blur). Also, putting in reflecting objects and cranking up the reflection depth can create some cool pictures (the render time increases exponentially, but they look cooler).

If you want to play around with the one I wrote, check it out at: www.phackett.com
There are movies on that page too. They are huge (40-50 megs), but I didn't want to compress them because that'd defeat the whole point.

It's almost impossible to create an EXE from Java code, so that's why I just threw the source into the raytracer zip.

BTW, I tried your Sonace game, and it didn't work. It said it couldn't create the DirectX 9 device. I was at the library, and I think most DirectX games have worked there in the past.

I see.
Yea, that Sonace game was a failed attempt at a good idea. There wasn't any helpful error checking code in there, it simply breaks if it doesn't like your computer. Sorry about that.
If you're bored, you should check out my other game, Rumble Box. That one is a bit more polished.

I've actually been downloading Rumble Box for the past hour. Your server is very slow. It's like it's on a dialup connection... with a 300 baud modem... with line noise.

Well, Rumble Box works, and it's pretty cool. Things get pretty slow though when the boxes pile up.
