    Cool Have You Programmed Anything Cool?

    If you have, tell us all what it is.

    I myself have programmed audio effects software plugins that plug into host programs such as Cubase and Fruity Loops.

    I wrote a program that outputted "YOU SUCK" infinitely on a school computer and left it there.

    Awesome. Not really, but seriously.

    I think this guy wins the thread.

    I just finished a compiler with an LL parser and I'm currently writing a virtual machine (much RISCyness but has some very high level instructions) that runs objects for a 2d game engine I may finish someday :|

    edit:
    I should also probably point out there's really no good reason for not just making binary loadable objects, my motivation for the machine is purely academic.

    I developed an application titled FlaBatch. It runs on Windows 9x/Me/XP.
    It is freeware.
    It batch Processes the Trace Bitmaps and Break Apart features in Macromedia Flash 4/5/MX/MX2004.

    I don't know if it would be considered cool, but it has saved me a lot of time while producing my cartoons.

    I recently wrote a brain.......... interpreter. Sure it was a poor attempt compared but it was the first (working) interpreter / compiler I've written.

    EDIT: Compared to the original 3 line implementation. Well, 3 physical lines, not statements.
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    heh I wrote a program like this at school too. The computers were old enough to have BASIC built into the ROM so the program was only 2 lines
    Code:
    10 PRINT "I hate school!"
    20 GOTO 10

    Cool.

    >>robocup

    Wait, you wrote a program that simulates the robocup tournament, or you programmed one of the robots? impressive list of projects, Per.

    RoboCup has different genres: 2 legged robots, 4 legged robots, etc etc.. One of them is pure simulation (no robots, just software). I wrote a team for the simulation server, a set of "intelligent agents" (as did everyone else in the class). Then we had our own tournament, it was a pretty fun class.

    Thanks, there are more but those are the ones that came to mind.

    What sorts of AI constructs did you use, e.g. finite state machines, neural networks, fuzzy logic...I've dabble with those, including FANN, read the quake3 AI thesis, wrote simple applications with FSM inside a simple virtual machine coupled with 'genetics' dictating the probability of each instruction being executed next, etc. Fascinating stuff.

    EDIT: good link, don't think I've read that one before. Bookmarked.
