Right back to the early days, I have always marvelled at computer generated
starfields, especially like Star Raiders on the Atari 400/800. So I figured
that I would have to produce my own in
When I first started coding this applet, I looked at some of the sample applets
Java Boutique web site, and found
a good sample one made by a guy called Will Schenk which included the full
source. I later completely rewrote and enhanced it to also include some fast
3D wireframe graphics, cool stuff!
First click on the applet to set the GUI focus.
1,2,3,4,5,6 - sets the starfield direction
0 - turns off the starfield
g - toggles wireframe graphics
i - toggles applet infomation
m - toggles max speed (overides optimized timing)
o - toggles optimized timing
