Good and cute. Be sure and give credit to CELESTE (Matt & Noel) for the snow routine.

Thanks for the note. I am using a code example from trasevol_dog (who in turn states that it's his own implementation, not the one used in Celeste :D). Made sure to include him in the credits.

Hmm ... Now the curious thing is here which came first, Noel or Trasevol. :) Checked did not see any snow programs from Trasevol.


I just recognize patterns when I see them and that's carbon of the snow in Celeste.

"Shamelessly stole from Celeste." Then says he wrote his own that merely looks exactly like it.

Well there's a brainweave for ya.

To be fair I also wrote my own, but it doesn't look like anyone else's, and it changes direction over time.

Alright, I guess I'm done here. :D

Thanks, @matthias.

Here is a STAR for you and your delightful Christmas Music Video.

Alright, I've added the makers of Celeste to the thread too.

Now, we should find out where they learned that you can reuse a random seed to create a wavy / snowy pattern on the screen and credit that person too. :D

A random seed is used ? Why ? I think ... I think I can reproduce this without. Gimme a sec ...

There, I think that's pretty close, and it doesn't use a random seed. Coded from observation only.

Is it just me or is this abysmally slow, not sure my PC can handle this

P#71084 2019-12-17 01:42

Which ? The dancing Santa or my Celeste snow ?

P#71085 2019-12-17 01:44

I thought I remember it running without going over cpu but something must've changed since then :<
Still fun though
