Yes, kind of hypnotic. It must have looked great on the big screen, even when you are thirsty :-D

I don't have a clue how its done, but since plain LDA+STA seems already too much, I suppose the results of some of the calculations are used in more than one way?

Btw, why is this effect called "plasma"? To me it always looks more like small waves on a liquid surface viewed from above.

ah yeah on the screenshot it looks like that yes, but no it doesnt need that symmetry.

very nice, eventhough you tried to explain it to me there are stuff that need alot of beer to make things to be understood better ;)

so there is char layer and a sprite layer...
and puzling out things .. in chars it is easier, but for sprites it has to be copied... so all in all it is very complex... it gives more colors with etc.. etc.. and then I got thirsty ;)

I guess you are making use of symmetry in the image to cut the amount of calculations in half? Is that part of the trick?
