Well, there isn't much to say. I have seen many pixel-based flame effects
around and my idea was to write a particle-based flame effect. This is what
you are holding in your hands. It probably isn't the best solution, but it
works and draws some elliptic shapes that look like something you would call
fire. =)

It is based on SDL and doubly-linked lists, which I have developed myself.
For performance reasons I have also written the pseudo-random number
generator myself. It works with additions and bit operations only, so it is
very fast (370 million numbers/sec on my Duron 1.6 GHz machine).

Since the program is released under the GNU GPL, you can, with a few
limitations, do whatever you want with any part of the source code. Read the
GPL for further informations. If you still have any questions regarding
licensing, just email me and I'll help you.

If you have problems or want to report a bug, see the Troubleshooting section

Enjoy. =)


If you want to run this program in fullscreen mode or change the resolution,
call the program with the -h option, which will provide you with a little
usage help text:

Phire.exe -h

Just drop me an email. See below for contact information.


If you have a question, a problem (which is not already covered in the
