Thanks, Hawkee. Can you set it to 640x480?
That's pretty neat. I like how it sticks to itself.
This could make a good android game. Use your finger to round up all the animals.
Wow, that's really neat. I got them all to flock together then made a donut by clicking the middle. They all joined back together after a few seconds.
@Hawkee, If you don't mind, can you make it 640x480?
I will be making a blog post on Flock here in the next few days @ bluethen.com
I updated the dimensions, so it should all show up now.
Width should be 800, height should be 500.
What width and height should the demo be? We have support for a custom width and height, but I haven't built the interface to change it yet. I can do it manually.
Just demo'ed it and realized that part of the window is cut off. You won't be able to see the vector diagram in this version. Perfectly functional though.
About all the o's, I was in a hurry to upload and didn't have time to write a detailed description.
Basically the app is a simulator for analog circuits.
The schematic shown is a simple RC low-pass filter. As the frequency increases or as the capacitance increases or as the resistance decreases, the OUT1 voltage increases.
I have programmed a graphing utility and a vector diagram but in this upload only the vector diagram is visible.
The vector displays the circuit's total impedance (diagonal) as the result of the capacitance (vertical) and the resistance (horizontal). With the default component values, the vector will appear only as a black dot on the right side of the window. To make the vector more visible, lower the capacitance value of the capacitor and increase the resistance value of the resistor (instructions for modifying component values described below).
I plan to add more schematics but for now the RC low-pass filter is the only one I have programmed (I will also enable the ability to switch between viewing the graph and the vector diagram).
I plan to give the app Arduino interface functionality via serial communication(haven't coded that yet either :P).
The Arduino will be programmed to test for the value of a capacitor, resistor, inductor, or ac source (this will be done using external circuitry) and create a new capacitor, resistor, inductor, or ac source object with the test value.
You could effectively import an entire circuit into the processing and simulate the circuit's output.
Use SPACE to select a component when the mouse is over. This will change the outline to a green-blue.
To deselect, press SPACE when the mouse is not over the component.
While selected, a component's value can be changed by using W, A, S, D.
W - increases the increment value (10)
S - decreases the increment value (.1)
A - decrease the component's value by the increment
D - increase the component's value by the increment
Comment if you have anymore questions.
Neat application. Is it a game or what? As of right now, all I could get it to do was drag the corresponding pieces to their respective spots on the diagram.
How does it work? Also, you might want to fix all those o's in your description.
Very Cool :P spent 30 mins messing with the demo LOL
There is no file to download here.
I'm having a problem with this. It turns grey when I click. If this is a problem on our end let me know and I'll look into it.
Hahahaha was fun tearing it apart and it all over the place. Nice!!
Hey everyone. I updated the code to be cleaner, faster, and smoother.
More info on it here: http://bluethen.com/wordpress/index.php/dev-log/changes-to-curtain/
Yes, I believe this is Processing's fault. I had some problems as well trying to embed it into my website. While we wait for Hawkee to fix this, you can view the applet here: http://bluethen.com/wordpress/index.php/processing-apps/nebula-generator/
You can also run it by downloading the zip file, exporting the applet folder, and opening up the index file.
I couldn't open any of the jar files on my computer unlike what I use to. Also the Try Demo button isn't working.. As you've already noticed. :) Looks good though
That's one of my main reasons of using Processing (Java) instead of a lower-level language like C++. I seriously doubt anyone would be interested in downloading an exe to try out any of the 10 second demos I make.
Also you can create applets in Processing reasonably quickly. There's a lot less hassle with language-specific and library stuff.
i really like the fact that you have a site set up so people can just go to it and check out your stuff instead of having to dl it and dl the app to make it work
Looks neat BlueThen +Like
Thank you, Hawkee.
Pretty neat BlueThen, I made it 640x480 for you.
