The Flame Effect :-

X = Pixel  A,B,C = Values to average  DV = Decay Value

123  123
4X5  4X5
678  ABC  X's colour = A+B+C / 3 ( beacause were adding 3 values ) - DV
^ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ¿
^ X and its surrounding pixel colours. À> X and the pixels we've chosen

The basics of the flame effect are to choose as many of the 8 pixels
( you could use others ) arround the pixel, you are trying to finds
colour, as you want.  Then find the average ( add up all the values and
divide by the ammount of values you added ) of the pixels and then
use this as the pixel's colour.  You have to do this for every one of the
Because were calculating values then putting them in the array you can't
just use the screen.  So you are going to have to use another array to do
all your calculations and then move that to the screen.

This file is provided so that you programmers who want to write demos and
stuff like that can learn how to.  I've commented most of the source and
have only used a couple of assembler statments so those of you ( you know
who you are ) who don't know how to write in assembler can still know what
is going on, although I can't guarentee that.

I would like it if you could send me a message saying what you think of this
and if you have added things I'd also like a copy of the source. You can
mail me at :-
