The Java Jive.
Some years ago at this website I have along with my ISP I created a java applet. The java applet animates the Grateful Dead bumper sticker with the Dancing Bears. It was cool, and I very quickly thought up some improvements but, I that has always been low on my list of to dos.
Well, I need a project to motivate myself to learn the programming language and I am dusting off the dancing bears project. I am having to reacquaint myself with the basics of the language and I have a real neat development environment to help myself along.
Again as then, the real time consuming part is the artwork. I found a high quality image of the bears from which to make the needed images.
Here are the improvements.
- I will use eight steps instead of five.
- Each color of bear will have its own thread and each will run independently of the other.
- Will consider adding speed controls.
- Will consider adding a tune.
