    This browser demo probably owns you 9 ways from sunday

    I've seen a lot of debate about scripting languages being suitable, practicle or able for game programming in the game dev forum here. A lot of arguments are they are too slow or not complex or for what ever reason not capable of handling a decent gaming system.


    Well here goes a very practicle proof to blow away that idea. This demo is done in entirely JavaScript for the web browser and is pretty sweet. Granted it's pretty retro as far as effects and stuff but still very awsome to see done in JavaScript. Those of you who are familiar with using jscript will be quite impressed I believe, I know I was.


    Anywho, the link

    cool or what?

    (it should be realized my posts are all in a light hearted manner. And should not be taken offense to.)

    Cool. But I know how to do it myself.

    Code:
    <html>
    <head>
    <style type="text/css">
    body {
    background-color:#000000;
    }
    </style>
    <script language="JavaScript">
    <!--
    document.write("fgewk);
    // -->
    </script>
    </head>
    </html>
    My head hurts.

    didn't work in Mozilla, but ran it in IE. pretty impressive actually if I was only done in javascript. A little slow though. but impressive.

    Who would have bothered putting all that together in Javascript! For me all it proves is Javascript is waaaaaay too slow for games

    No, actually that is about the maximum of what I would expect from Javascript. So no, this doesn't "blow me away", nor does it even remotely push me.
    Do not make direct eye contact with me.

    someone has too much freaking time. and what exactly does that prove? the only reason that might be remotely impressive to me would be because I wouldnt know how to do it. but other than that, nope.

    Well I finally decided to wait for it to load, it was pretty but since it failed to load on 2 of my 3 browers it gets a big fat 0

    someone wanna post a screeny for us anti-IE people, i wanna see what all of the fuss is about. the fact that it only runs in IE has already tainted my opinion of it though

    I would but I can't bring myself to the horror again. If you want to take a look at the code without looking at the actual demo its at:

    I tried it on 5 different browsers - unfortunately it did not show anything but a black screen. 5 different browsers! I don't find that very impressive at all.

    Great.
    Oh and all I get is a black screen also. I guess it doesn't use standard JavaScript.
